SKIPTON Film Club has announced its line-up for the new season - and it includes both new and classic movies to suit the most discerning of tastes.

Kicking off at the film club's home, Skipton Plaza on Sunday, September 3, is Pretty Red Dress. Released this year, the film debut of young director Dionne Edwards, Pretty Red Dress has been described as 'a toe tapping tale of desire and identity'.

With a soul soundtrack that features classic tracks from Tina Turner and Motown’s back catalogue, Pretty Red Dress is a 'funny, thrilling tale of how we live today' says the club's Paul Valentine.

Other films come from Spain - Alcarras; France - Smoking Causes Coughing; and from the United States, Reality. Meanwhile, the best of British cinema is represented with Polite Society, and the season opener, Pretty Red Dress.

"Our season will also include re-appraisals of great films from cinemas history. We are all looking forward to seeing that great classic The Wizard of Oz on the big screen in December," says Paul.

Fans of 1950s gothic noir have The Night of the Hunter, starring a terrifying Robert Mitchum, to look forward to in the new year.

Also included are Jacques Demy’s French new wave musical The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Boon Joon -Ho’s monster movie The Host.

Paul said: "We feel that our programme is one that will interest any film lover. Not only that, in these financially difficult times for many people, we offer great value for money as our membership fees that have stayed the same since 2016. Skipton Film Club is doing its bit to counter inflation.

"Once again we would like to thank Charles Morris , the owner of The Plaza and all his staff for their help and support – without which we could not run the club."

Membership is £5 and £4 concessions. Screenings are on the first Sunday of the month at 5.15pm. For further details find Skipton Film Club on Facebook or Instagram.
