Monico Movies announces spring programme

Rhiwbina's community cinema, Monico Movies, has announced its line-up for the spring.

After The Unlikely PIlgrimge of Harold Fry this Saturday (9 March), the monthly movie show will feature John Boorman's Hope and Glory on 13 April and The Green Book, directed by Peter Farrelly, on 11 May.

Written, produced, and directed by John Boorman, Hope and Glory is based on his own experiences growing up in London during the Second World War.

The story is presented through the eyes of 10-year-old Billy (Sebastian Rice-Edwards), as he and other boys find the nightly bombings both thrilling and frightening, while also discovering the ruins left behind as a captivating playground.

Green Book tells the true story of Dr Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) a world-class African-American pianist who’s about to embark on a concert tour in the Deep South in 1962.

In need of a driver and protection, he recruits Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a tough-talking Italian-American bouncer. Despite their differences, the two men soon develop an unexpected bond while confronting racism and danger in an era of segregation.

Both films are rated 12.

Tickets will be available from the usual Rhiwbina outlets, Serenade, Victoria Fearn Gallery, The Honeypot and The Deri Stores at £5 (cash only).

Monico Movies shows start at 7.30pm, with doors open at 7pm. The venue is Canolfan Beulah Church Community Centre,Beulah Road, CF14 6LX
