Meet the Beatles

A LIVE show on Saturday, March 16, from the rooftop of The Cavern in Liverpool, features Meet the Beatles, described as "one of the finest new tributes to The Beatles."

   From the costumes they wear to the perfect harmonies and all the original instruments, they deliver the most authentic sound and look since the Sixties.

   They will be playing all the hits from the early Moptop days through to the final rooftop performance.

   This is a chance to take a step back in time and recapture the glory days of the original Merseybeat sound and see the show in the Civic Hall.

   Table reservations for groups of six-plus can be made.

   Contact the Civic Hall box office directly to discuss your requirements. That's 01270 628633.

Nantwich Film Club

THE club's community cinema is volunteer run and shows films on a 5.7metre (224-inch) screen. Their programme includes popular,  independent, classic and foreign language films.

   And the audiences can have their say on which films might be screened and events staged by the film club.

   Films are screened on the second Monday of the month. The doors and bar open at 7pm and the film starts at 7.45pm (unless stated otherwise - for a longer film, for instance). There is no membership fee and no obligation to see every film. Entrance is £5 and open to all, subject to British Board of Film Classification certification.

March 11: "Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool". Certificate 15. Running time 105 minutes. Biography / drama / romance. English. In 1979, a young Liverpudlian is blown away when a Hollywood starlet of 30 years ago moves in next door to him. They hit it off instantly. The stars of the film flesh out their deep characters and make their whirlwind romance and subsequent low points all the more real.

 

April 8: "Under the Tree". Certificate 15. Running time 89 minutes. Comedy / drama. Icelandic. The film escalates the issue of one neighbour's tree casting shade on the porch of the other, far beyond common sense, civility and the law until the wacky conclusions. Complex characters are built and broken by life's more significant twists and turns. Societal angst in a fun and engaging way.

 

May 13: "The Rider". Certificate 15. Running time 105 minutes. Drama. English. The film's director met a horse trainer and heard his story while researching a project on a ranch in South Dakota. A former rodeo rider and local hero, the young man could provide for his family until he was thrown from his horse and kicked in the head. This became the hard-hitting tale of self realisation on screen.
