Films in Stafford Spring 2017 Lineup of Films with News

Welcome to our Website


Our Spring 2017 season of films continues with:

Hunt for the Wilder People

Tuesday 25 April 2017




Director: Taiki Waititi

Running Time : 101 mins

New Zealand 2016


Cert PG





Sam Neil (as foster uncle Hec) and Julian Dennison (13-year-old Ricky) star in this delightful comedy from Down Under.  Based on the Barry Crump novel of the same name, screenwriter and     director Taika Waititi creates an engaging and hilarious account of a problematic young city boy who escapes into the bush when his foster home falls apart. The ensuing chase is outrageously funny.  The central characters Hec and Ricky are both sad products of a system that can barely accommodate them. Featured at Robert Redford’s Sundance Festival, the New York Times hailed the film as ‘a charming drama masquerading as a comedy’.



Whilst we have lots of seats available, come early to avoid the queues!

- and the hospitable Gatehouse Bar provides a comfortable venue to relax before the performance.
