Join us for “Movie Afternoon” at Sprowston Diamond Centre

 Monday 6 February 2023:  Amsterdam

(15, COMEDY/DRAMA, 134 minutes)

Burt, Harold, and Valerie meet in 1918: they’re injured servicemen and she’s a nurse. After the war, the threesome travel to Amsterdam, where they enjoy an idyllic break from reality before Valerie disappears and Burt and Harold return to the U.S. – the former to become a physician obsessed with repairing the disfigurements of war veterans and the latter to study law. Years later, the murder of a Senator reunites the trio and eventually brings them to the door of a grumpy but honest war hero, General Gil Dillenbeck (Robert De Niro), whose charisma shadowy forces hope to exploit.

Monday 6 March 2023:  See How They Run

(12A, COMEDY/MYSTERY, 98 minutes)

In the West End of 1950s London, plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunnit within the glamorously sordid theatre underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.

Monday 3 April 2023:  LIVING

(12A, DRAMA, 102 mins)

When Mr Williams (Bill Nighy), a buttoned-up bureaucrat in 1950s London, is diagnosed as terminally ill, he decides that he would like to achieve something for once, instead of just endlessly pushing paper. A group of ladies has come into the Public Works office, asking to have a hazardous area in their neighbourhood transformed into a children’s playground. With nothing to show for his decades of service, the formerly ineffectual Mr Williams makes it his personal mission to push the job through before he dies.
