Continuing our season of Paul Newman films, we are proud to present:

Cool Hand Luke

Cool Hand Luke

When petty criminal Luke Jackson (Paul Newman) is sentenced to two years in a Florida prison farm, he doesn't play by the rules of either the sadistic warden (Strother Martin) or the yard's resident heavy, Dragline (George Kennedy), who ends up admiring the new guy's unbreakable will. Luke's bravado, even in the face of repeated stints in the prison's dreaded solitary confinement cell 'the box' make him a rebel hero to his fellow convicts and a thorn in the side of the prison officers.

Paul Newman & Robert Redford Double Bill

Our next presentation will be two films with an interval when food will be served.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

4.30pm (Doors open 4.00pm)

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

One of the most popular screen Westerns ever made this Academy award winning classic blends adventure, romance and comedy to tell the true story of the West?s most likeable outlaws. No-one is quicker than Butch Cassidy when it comes to get rich quick schemes, and his sidekick Sundance is a wizard with a gun. When these two bungling bank and train robbers tire of running from the law they set out for Bolivia with Sundance's girlfriend. Though they can barely speak enough Spanish to communicate: 'This is a stick-up', that's only a minor detail in the two nicest 'bad-guys' who ever rode the West.

  • Director: George Roy Hill
  • Starring: Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Katherine Ross
  • Music: Burt Bacharach
  • Running Time: 105 minutes
  • Certificate: 12

At 6.30pm a meal will be served.

The Sting

Following the murder of a mutual friend, aspiring con man Johnny Hooker (Robert Redford) teams up with old pro Henry Gondorff (Paul Newman) to take revenge on the ruthless crime boss responsible, Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). Hooker and Gondorff set about implementing an elaborate scheme, one so crafty that Lonnegan won't even know he's been swindled. As their big con unfolds, however, things don't go according to plan, requiring some last-minute improvisation by the undaunted duo.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Cert X)

6 Oscar nominations and Bafta award for Best Actor

"I'm not living with you," Maggie snaps at Brick. "We occupy the same cage, that's all."; The raw emotions and crackling dialogue of Tennessee Williams' 1955 Pulitzer Prize-winning play rumble like a thunderstorm in this film version whose fiery performances and grown-up themes made it a box-office hit. Paul Newman earned his first Oscar nomination for his nuanced portrayal of troubled former sports hero Brick, an alcoholic ex-football player who drinks his days away and resists the affections of his wife, Maggie. His reunion with his father, Big Daddy, who is dying of cancer, jogs a host of memories and revelations for both father and son. Capturing her second Oscar nomination, Elizabeth Taylor makes Maggie the Cat, digging her claws in and holding onto life not as it is , but as she hopes it someday will be, a vivid portrait of passionate loyalty

Director: Richard Brooks

Written by: Richard Brooks and James Poe based on a play by Tennessee Williams

Stars: Paul Newman, Elizabeth Taylor, Burl Ives, Vaughn Taylor, Judith Anderson, Jack Carson

Runtime: 108 minutes

Sunday September 16th 2018. Doors open at 7.30pm for start at 8.00pm. Tickets 4.00 per person. Licenced Bar

About Scrooby Cinema

Scrooby Community Cinema holds irregular seasons of film showings in Scrooby Village Hall. The screenings take place on Sunday evening at 8pm.

Between March 2011 and May 2012, over 500 people came to Scrooby Community Cinema!

Anyone can come to see the films; we are not a film club. Entrance costs around 4 on the door; we keep this charge as low as possible. As you would expect, we enforce the age certificate of the film.

Films tend to be mainstream and English-language. The audience is asked for film suggestions at each screening. If you have a favorite film, or one you think would be popular, you can suggest a film on this page.

The projection and sound equipment was donated by the Parish Council and Village Show. We have a Bluray projector and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound system.

Scrooby Community Cinema shows films in Scrooby Village Hall on the third Sunday of every month. We are a not-for-profit village group.
