Our next film is Green Book, an American biographical comedy-drama film directed by Peter Farrelly. Set in 1962, the film is inspired by the true story of a tour of the Deep South by African American classical and jazz pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and Italian American bouncer Frank "Tony Lip" Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen) who served as Shirley's driver and bodyguard.

Green Book is being shown in The Corn Exchange on Friday 28th February 2020 at 7.30pm and Saturday 29th February 2020 at 7.30pm.

The film was written by Farrelly, Brian Hayes Currie and Vallelonga's son, Nick Vallelonga, based on interviews with his father and Shirley, as well as letters his father wrote to his mother. The film is named after 'The Negro Motorist Green Book', a mid-20th century guidebook for African-American travelers, written by Victor Hugo Green.

The film won the National Board of Review award for the best film, and was also chosen as one of the top 10 films of the year by the American Film Institute. The film received numerous accolades and nominations, and at the 91st Academy Awards in 2019 won three Oscars for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali. The film also won the Producers Guild of America Award for Best Theatrical Motion Picture and the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, while Ali won the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, and BAFTA awards for Best Supporting Actor.

Admission is £7, with tickets available from Hamiltons Newsagents and at the door on the evening, subject to availability.


Another excellent line-up for our 2019/20 season - an Oscar and BAFTA-winning drama, two true-life stories, a British biographical comedy-drama, a charming animated aventure and a wonderful British comedy. Please click on the posters below to read more about each film.
