HIADS Film Showing:


7:30pm (and 2:30pm Friday matinee), Seats at £4.50 (front 3 rows £3.00).
wheelchair seats are only available from the box office

Starring: Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, James D'Arcy

From filmmaker Christopher Nolan (“Interstellar,” “Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy) comes the epic action thriller “Dunkirk.”

“Dunkirk” opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea, they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.

The story unfolds on land, sea and air. RAF Spitfires engage the enemy in the skies above the Channel, trying to protect the defenseless men below. Meanwhile, hundreds of small boats manned by both military and civilians are mounting a desperate rescue effort, risking their lives in a race against time to save even a fraction of their army.

Comment from Amazon: Everything that's possible to say about this movie has probably been said already, so here are the main reasons why it gets five stars from me: it's neither a story nor a documentary, more a description in sound and vision of what is known about the evacuation from Dunkirk; the three timelines cleverly converge in the last minutes of the film; the musical soundtrack by Hans Zimmer is mostly like a throbbing pulse which is relentless, like the events themselves; the incredibly long list of stuntmen would seem to bear out the fact that Christopher Nolan chose not to depend on CGI for the action, putting his cast in uncomfortably realistic positions; there are acts of heroism and sacrifice; but despite the heroism, there is no doubt as to the human cost, which is why I'm impressed the film was made to have a 12 Certificate, allowing youngsters to see it - even if at first it was just to see Harry Styles as Alex!

Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society presents:

The Madness of George III

7:30pm, £10

by Alan Bennett

directed by Vicky Fox

In this sensational drama (originally performed by the Royal National Theatre) George III becomes increasingly erratic after losing the American colonies until doctors are brought in to cure his madness. All of them are eminently respectable quacks and one is in the employ of the Prince to Wales, a man with a strong motive for easing the king further into madness. The only hope of avoiding a constitutional crisis lies in the hands of a lowly country doctor. Nigel Hawthorne starred at London's National Theatre, on Broadway and film as mad King George.

Reviews of the orginal production: "Absolutely engrossing." - New York Post. "A richly amusing evening of high office politics with plenty of contemporary resonances." - Daily Express. "What Mr. Bennett achieves with a consummate sense of theatre is in making this remote, ambiguous monarch character totally accessible to a modern audience, at once a fascinating figure of both tragedy and heroism." - The Daily Mail.

This amateur production is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

Acoustic Club

7.30pm, £12

Acoustic goodness with the trio!

“Sensational harmonies”

DiElle’s acoustic show with John Gleadall and Chris Wood is an honest celebration of the joys of acoustic music. Indulging in acoustic hit songs through the ages, the show includes songs from classic songwriters such as the Eagles, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Carole King, The Beatles and The Hollies, and the next generation of artists they have influenced such as Crowded House and Snow Patrol.

DiElle will also launch her new album ‘Together’ at this show, and perform selected original tracks from this new album.

The three musicians met after each having a varied career of many years, taking them from stadium tours, to Hollywood to London’s West End with various projects. John, Chris and DiElle met on the local music scene in Hampshire, and enjoy playing music festivals, arts centres, theatres, and local TV and radio, as well as playing further afield, enjoying a tour to Switzerland last year.

With a deep love of the craft of song, the artists also feature a section on Bob Dylan, celebrating the wealth of music he has created in his time. John Gleadall is nothing short of a local legend, having a long and varied career, including playing with The Crooners for 30 years. John is currently co-writing musicals with poet and playwright Greg Mosse. Having been Billy Ocean’s Musical Director at the age of 19, bassist Chris Wood, son of jazz trumpeter Vic Wood, has versatile and exquisite musicianship with an ear for detail. Singer-songwriter DiElle has been described as having “a voice that could bring a tear to the eye of even the most stone hearted souls”, and is currently composing for Hollywood film companies.

The group have been described as having “Sensational harmonies” by events executive John Sackett, and pride themselves on close harmony singing, and traditional acoustic guitar sound.

This upbeat, fun trio is not to be missed if you love good songs and acoustic music.
