How do you follow a Saturday night spent watching a classic film on the big screen? With another, even bigger adventure just a few weeks later!

Goldfinger 12th May

Fresh from showing Alfred Hitchcock’s legendary North by Northwest, Monico Movies will be bringing the one and only James Bond to Rhiwbina on May 12 with the unforgettable Goldfinger (PG). This was the Sean Connery film that set the standard for Bond’s adventures for decades to come: a dramatic opening sequence, a Shirley Bassey theme tune, beautiful women (including Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore), and a dastardly villain with a lethal plan. Striding through it all is MI6’s super-spy, armed with his wits and his Walther PPK and driving the car that every boy (and his dad) wanted: an Aston Martin with an ejector seat.

After enjoying 007’s death-defying mission, why not join us on June 9 for an adventure of a different kind: the unusual relationship at the centre of the highly-praised romantic drama Venus (15)

Venus 9th June

Peter O’Toole received his eighth Oscar nomination in his role of Maurice, an actor in his seventies who spends his days putting the world to rights with his friends (Leslie Phillips and Richard Griffiths) and snapping up occasional bits of work on TV. His humdrum existence is transformed when a boisterous and determined young woman (Jodie Whittaker, the new Doctor Who) enters his life. Their growing relationship takes funny and unexpected turns, with each of them looking for something from the other. But will they both get what they want?


Tickets for each film will be on sale at our usual suppliers—Serenade, Deri Stores and The Honeypot—as well as our new ticket outlet, the Victoria Fearn Gallery. Thank you very much to the gallery on Heol Y Deri for becoming our latest outlet. Be sure to check out its wide range of artwork.
