exmouth cinema – thursday 28th september – you choose!
Welcome to the most hotly debated subject this month! No, it’s not whether to put the heating on or not. It’s what film should we show at the exmouth cinema.
We have a pretty diverse selection for you that’s for sure:
Infamous for its shower scene, but immortal for its contribution to the horror genre, Psycho continues to be thrilling to this day. Produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock this classic film is loosely based on the real-life killings of Wisconsin serial murderer Ed Gein. The film stars Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, John Gavin and Martin Balsam. The plot centers on an encounter between on-the-run embezzler Marion Crane (Leigh) and shy motel proprietor Norman Bates (Perkins) and its aftermath, in which a private investigator (Balsam), Marion’s lover Sam Loomis (Gavin), and her sister Lila (Miles) investigate her disappearance.
Shawshank Redemption (1994)
This American prison drama film written and directed by Frank Darabont is based on the 1982 Stephen King novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption. The film tells the story of banker Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins), who is sentenced to life in Shawshank State Penitentiary for the murders of his wife and her lover, despite his claims of innocence. Over the following two decades, he befriends a fellow prisoner, contraband smuggler Ellis “Red” Redding (Morgan Freeman), and becomes instrumental in a money laundering operation led by the prison warden Samuel Norton (Bob Gunton). A very modest hit in the cinemas, but an absolute cult classic that stands the test of time and repeat viewings.
Dirty Dancing (1987)
Have the time of your life with this classic 80’s romantic dance film with Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. Baby (Jennifer Grey) is one listless summer away from the Peace Corps. Hoping to enjoy her youth while it lasts, she’s disappointed when her summer plans deposit her at a sleepy resort in the Catskills with her parents. Her luck turns around, however, when the resort’s dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love. Baby’s father forbids her from seeing Johnny, but she’s determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer. A brilliant sound track and some iconic dance scenes await you.
