Bo’ness Barony Film Society’s exotic start to season

the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with its illustrious cast of Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Maggie Smith kicks off the new season of movie magic for the Barony Film Society this Friday, September 21.

A packed 12-film programme, at the Barony Theatre until next March, includes silver screen gems like Chariots of Fire - in a nod to the Olympic year - The Angels’ Share, with a scene shot at Bo’ness Railway, plus multiple Oscar winner The Artist.

Steven Spielberg’s War Horse gallops into town, there’s mysterious goings on in Cold War thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and a Royal Opera House, high-definition, filmed performance of The Nutcracker heralds the society’s first ballet.

Thanks to a season ticket option, you can enjoy all 12 films for £31 - which works out at £2.58 each!

Chairman Ian Kerr said: “It’s a terrible cliche to say there’s something for everybody, but I think it’s the best bunch of films I could have put together this year! Every one of them has great strength.”

Each showing starts at 7.30pm, with the full line up: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (12A), September 21; Chariots of Fire (U), October 5; The Well Digger’s Daughter (PG), October 19; War Horse (12A), November 16; The Angels’ Share (15), November 30; Tchaikovsky - The Nutcracker (U), December 14; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (18), January 11; The Help (12A), January 25; The Iron Lady (12A), February 8; Mao’s Last Dancer (PG), February 22; Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (15), March 8; The Artist (PG) and AGM, March 22.
