Film at the Folk Hall presents Empire of Light

June 23 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The next Film at the Folk Hall of the year is here! Set in an English coastal town in the early 1980s, Empire of Light is a compelling and poignant drama about the power of human connection during turbulent times, from Oscar winning director Sam Mendes. Empire of Light features a stellar cast led by Oscar winner Olivia Colman, BAFTA winner Micheal Ward (Blue Story, Top Boy) and Oscar winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man). It also reunites Mendes with Academy Award winning cinematographer Roger Deakins (1917, Skyfall).
Enjoy this beautiful film among friends in our relaxed and beautiful hall, created by Joseph Rowntree to bring communities together under one roof. As well as music and a licensed bar, we have table seating and an interval so you can make your cinema trip a social one.
