Thursday 21st February – Warcop Remote Cinema presents – `The Wife’ (15) – Warcop Parish Hall

Starring Glen Close and Jonathan Pryce.  When Joseph Castleman (Jonathan Pryce) wins the Nobel Prize for Literature the first person he shares the news with is his wife Joan (Glenn Close, in what will surely be an Oscar-nominated performance).  However, what should be the culmination of a great literary career, proves to be the unravelling of a relationship built around a carefully and deliberately maintained secret.  Pryce and Close are in career-best form in this gripping drama.  Featuring an equally impressive supporting turn from Christian Slater, as the journalist with an itch to scratch.

Doors open 7.00pm.  Screening 7.15pm.  Adults £4 if booked at least 24 hours in advance, £4.50 on the door, U16’s £2.50.  Refreshments available during the interval, including ice creams. To book your tickets in advance please email [email protected]
