SKIPTON Film Club is back with an exciting line up of films after a break of almost two years because of the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s autumn season, which starts at The Plaza, Skipton, on Sunday, September 5 will include a mixture of current British and European independent films, contemporary Hollywood, including the Oscar winning Nomadland, and a mini-season of classic American film, including the Orson Welles classic and one of the best films ever made, Citizen Kane.

First off will be the uplifting Rocks - Sarah Gavron’s coming of age movie, being shown in Skipton for the first time.

Paul Valentine, from the film club, said: “Our American Classic season covers a variety of styles and genres – from the paranoid science fiction of the original 1956 Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the early seasonal celebration of cinema of the past in Singin’ in the Rain, a chance to see arguably one of the greatest films ever made with Orson Welles’s Citizen Kane, and finally a first appearance at Skipton Film Club by Mr Alfred Hitchcock and his brilliant Strangers on a Train based on the Patricia Highsmith thriller.”

In celebration of British independent cinema, the club will be showing the very scary horror film Saint Maud, directed by the up-and-coming Rose Glass, and the thriller After Love directed by Aleem Khan.

From Europe comes German director Christian Petzold’s latest film Undine – a modern fairy tale of love and intrigue, and ending the season, the winner of the Cannes award for best screenplay in 2019 Celine Sciamma’s Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

All films,with the exception of Portrait of a Lady on Fire will be shown on the first Sunday of each month at 5.15pm, from September until June. Members and non members welcome.
