Film Club

Lapworth Film Club was set up in 2011 by a small group of then Committee Members of the Lapworth Village Hall Committee to provide an enjoyable social event and funding opportunity for maintenance and improvements to this important village amenity.  On advice from the auditor, it became a separate organisation but all profits after expenses and licence fees are donated to Lapworth Village Hall.

Film Club is on the last Monday of the month from September to April (excluding December) at 7.15pm for 7.45pm at Lapworth Village Hall.

There is a bar and the £5 taken at the door includes free refreshments at the interval.

Besides showing films carefully chosen by a small committee, the evening provides an occasion for people to meet where they might not meet otherwise.

Films are advertised in the Parish Magazine, on posters on the village noticeboards, and on a large poster opposite the Village Shop.

Films are also shown to Elderberries, Preschool and Lapworth School PTA on request.

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry (12A)

Mild-mannered pensioner Harold Fry (Jim Broadbent) takes a stroll to the postbox one bright Devon morning. But for some reason he can’t bring himself to post the letter. It’s just a few stunted lines on headed notepaper, a reply to his old friend and former work colleague Queenie (Linda Bassett), who, he learned recently, has terminal cancer. Then a chance encounter in a petrol station gives Harold a new purpose: he decides to walk from Devon to Berwick-upon-Tweed, where Queenie is receiving palliative care in a hospice.

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry is a 2023 British drama film directed by Hettie Macdonald. It is based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Rachel Joyce. The film stars Jim Broadbent and Penelope Wilton.
