Cinema – Red Joan (12)
September 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Real life spy, Melita Norwood, played by Judi Dench was the eighty year old living in contented retirement until her arrest by MI5 to be charged with treason. The film lingers over her in old age but also uses dramatic flashbacks to return the audience to 1930s Cambridge and the Cold War to explore why someone would want to betray their country.
A subtle and deft performance by Judi Dench as this unassuming pensioner with big secrets is matched by the atmospheric direction from Trevor Nunn from the National Shakespeare Company.
Doors open at 7pm. Licensed bar and ice creams on sale in the interval. Adults £5.50, 16s and under £3.00
