FUTURE PROGRAM - Dulverton Films

Go to content

A curmudgeonly instructor at a New England prep school remains on campus during Christmas break to babysit a handful of students with nowhere to go. He soon forms an unlikely bond with a brainy but damaged troublemaker, and with the school's head cook, a woman who just lost a son in the Vietnam War.

During World War II, the organisation ‘The Women's Land Army’ recruited women to work on British farms while the men were off to war. Three such ‘land girls’ of different social backgrounds - quiet Stella, young hairdresser Prue, and Cambridge graduate Ag - become best friends in spite of their different backgrounds.
Filmed mostly in and near Dulverton and the West Somerset Railway in 1997 starring Catherine McCormack, Rachel Weisz, Anna Friel, Steven Mackintosh, plus many local Exmoor people as extras. Watch an Armed Service march in High Street and the dance scene with a band playing on our Town Hall stage with the same proscenium arch as you watch the film on our screen!

The Longest Day

A special showing of this epic film on behalf of the Royal British Legion, Dulverton to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

From 1962 this film has an astounding cast including John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Richard Burton, Sean Connery, Paul Anka, Fabian, Curt Jurgans, Leslie Phillips, George Segal, Rod Steiger, Richard Todd and so many other familiar faces such as Richard Wattis.

The true story of London broker Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton (Anthony Hopkins) helps rescue hundreds of predominantly Jewish children from Czechoslovakia in a race against time before the Nazi occupation closes the borders. Fifty years later, he's still haunted by the fate of those he wasn't able to bring to safety.
