Happy New Year from everyone at RFT!
We welcome you back to a new season of great films, some of which have not yet been released to the big screen cinemas. Our season starts with the highly acclaimed Philomena starring Judi Dench, which I know that many of you will be eager to see and includes other highlights such as Gravity, Sunshine on Leith, Captain Phillips and Saving Mr Banks.
As usual, we have organised a number of events in collaboration with the University of Reading; The Lady in No 6 which has a strong possibility of being nominated for an Oscar; nominations will be announced the following day! The documentary will be introduced by the producer, Chris Branch, who is an alumn from the University and is being shown in advance of the Holocaust Memorial Day later in the month. Project Wild Thing, in which the director attempts to wean his children away from modern technology and back to nature, will be introduced by Helen Bilton who is Associate Professor in Education at the University of Reading's Institute of Education. And as part of the Reading Science week, we will be showing the film Hawking based on the life of Stephen Hawking.
On Thursday February 25th we welcome back Minima who will be providing a live sound track to accompany the silent classic Phantom of the Opera. The Minima events are always very popular and early booking is recommended.
We look forward to seeing you and your friends at one of our film evenings.
