Newsflash!!!! A special event in April…..
Due to Covid, we still cannot meet as we usually do in Canolfan Beulah.
The Monico Movies team have been very busy discussing ways to stay connected with our audience who have sustained this wonderful community cinema for the past 5 years. The Monico Movies crew are still so thrilled at the success of our Rhiwbina Community Cinema but of course frustrated that we have been unable to be together with you all and share a movie together this past year.
So we have arranged for next month a special one-off Zoom screening.
On 10th April, we will be screening at 7.30p.m. a programme of favourite short
films for you all to enjoy.
This will be an opportunity for us all to meet from our own homes to enjoy these
favourite shorts of yours.
You will need to join our meeting via the following
Click here on the 10th April just before 7.30pm
Please spread the word in order that everyone knows about our planned
screening, and we can all have a wonderful evening together. We look
forward to seeing you all!

The film we are recommending for March is A United Kingdom, starring David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike and Tom Felton.
The film is about the love affair between Prince Seretse Khama of
Bechuanaland, who is studying law in Britain, and a British woman Ruth
Williams. Nothing prepares them for the diplomatic uproar their love sparks, and this is the story that unfolds and leads towards the eventual establishment of the Republic of Botswana.
A true story of a love that shook an empire, set during the time of South Africa’s apartheid programme, and proving that love can triumph over prejudice. As was her previous costume drama, Belle, which we screened at Monico Movies in November 2017, this film is rich in detail and design, and was directed by Amma Asante.
The film won the British Screenwriters’ Award in 2017.
