THE OLD OAK

Friday 7th June 2024

Doors open at 7:30pm, film starts at 8:00pm

Certificate: 15         Run time: 1hr 53min

The Old OakThe director Ken Loach has made a name for himself with politically charged films. The Old Oak is no different, and he tackles difficult and sensitive issues with empathy and nuance.

THE OLD OAK is a special place. Not only is it the last pub standing, but it's also the only remaining public space where people can meet in a once thriving mining community that has now fallen on hard times after 30 years of decline. TJ Ballantyne (Dave Turner) the landlord hangs on to The Old Oak by his fingertips.

But his predicament is endangered even more when the pub becomes contested territory after the arrival of Syrian refugees who are placed in the village without any notice. In an unlikely friendship TJ meets a curious young Syrian Yara [Ebla Mari] with her camera. Can they find a way for the two communities to understand each other? So unfolds a deeply moving drama about their fragilities and hopes.

Meavy Cinema is run by a sub-committee of the Meavy Parish Hall Management Committee.  We hope the cinema will prove to be a valuable resource for local residents, helping to reinforce a sense of community.  We have comfortable seating around tables.  A mix of refreshments, alcoholic, non-alcoholic and snacks, will be available from our licenced bar.  A chance to get involved in choice of future films will be offered to those attending a film screening.

Meavy Parish Hall is conveniently situated in the centre of Meavy Village with parking adjacent.
