Chance to catch up on all the hits

A Little Chaos
A Little Chaos

Inside the South Holland Centre

With well over 2,000 tickets sold, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has gone down a storm in Spalding – the most popular screened movie at the South Holland Centre over the last 12 months in fact!

This was, of course, no real surprise given the popularity of its prequel, and its sterling ensemble cast which includes Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton and Richard Gere.

So with four screenings still to go next week, anyone hoping to come along is strongly advised to pre-book their tickets to avoid disappointment.

Remaining screenings times are Tuesday at 2pm, Wednesday 7.30pm, Thursday 8.15pm and Friday 2pm. Sell-outs are highly probable!

Meanwhile, we’ve just finalised the film programme through to early July which sees us catching up with some of the hits earlier this year, such as American Sniper, Still Alice and Selma, before launching into the main spring programme.

There are some gorgeous looking historical dramas on the way including the story of a stolen wartime painting Woman in Gold starring Helen Mirren; the Russell Crowe World War I drama The Water Diviner; and a new Kate Winslet film about a female landscape gardener in the French court of King Louis XIV called A Little Chaos. We are also looking forward to a new British version of Thomas Hardy’s classic Victorian novel Far from the Madding Crowd, starring Carey Mulligan as Bathsheba.

Alongside all the costumes and frocks there is some grittier and more effects driven fare on offer too: Child 22 with Tom Hardy is a thriller based in Stalinist Russia; the latest Marvel Avengers movie arrives in early June; and for fans of the post-apocalyptic landscape of Mad Max, Fury Road is also in the early summer programme.

The full programme is on our website now and new film guides are expected within the next two weeks.
