MEMO Arts Centre, Barry, has lined-up three movies for the end of the month.
Firstly, from Monday, January 23 to Wednesday, January 25 will be Collateral Beauty (12A).
Collateral Beauty follows New York advertising executive Howard as he tries to recover emotionally from his child’s death. He does this by writing letters to Love, Time and Death.
Understandably, he’s not expecting any responses. But then he meets Death on a park bench, Time visits his apartment, and Love finds him in a restaurant. It seems crazy, but Harold knows it’s real – and they’re trying to help him.
Then starting on Friday, January 27 to Wednesday, February 22, will be A Monster Calls (12A). Conor is a troubled boy beset by bullies and struggling to cope with his mother’s illness. But when ‘A Monster Calls’, he’ll escape into a world of myths and magic.
There’s an ancient tree just outside his village that’s been there for thousands of years. Conor knows there’s something special about it, but he could never have guessed that it would come alive, and be the key to his salvation.
This film will also be screening during half term.
Also starting on Friday, January 27 until Monday, February 20 will be The Edge of Seventeen (15).
High school is a nightmare for 17-year-old Nadine. She doesn’t fit in with any particular ‘crowd’ and her lack of social skills means she is constantly red-faced and sinking down the popularity scale.
To top it all off, when compared to her perfect older brother, Darian, Nadine’s flaws seem even more pronounced.
With only the support of her best friend Krista to help her through the trenches of awkwardness, Nadine can’t wait to leave her teenage years behind her. Junior year couldn’t possibly get any worse.
The film will also be shown during half term.
Advance tickets to all showings cost £6, £4 for concessions or £3 for under-16s. Door tickets cost £6.50, £4.50 for concessions and £3.50 for under-16s.
Half term screening tickets cost £3 in advance or £3.50 on the door.
