Moviola

Moviola LogoDuring the Autumn and Winter months (October to March) a monthly “Moviola” is organised to show a variety of films in the Village Hall.  However, we have decided to show two films for the Summer Season and hope that you will come and enjoy them. Details of upcoming Moviola dates and showtimes can be seen below and on posters in surrounding areas and on the Village Noticeboards.

A bar is available on the evening, opening at 6:30pm before each film offering drinks beforehand and during the intermission.  Seating in the hall is available from 7pm (for health and safety reasons) and films begin showing at 7.30 pm. Tickets for the evening cost £6.00 [cash payment on the night] and please book via: 

More information is available by emailing tessmoviola@hotmail.com.

    Moviola will now be showing 'ONE LIFE'

    19:30East Stour Village Hall

    The true story of Sir Nicholas 'Nicky' Winton, a young London broker who, in the months leading up to World War II, rescued 669 predominantly Jewish children from the Nazis. Nicky visited Prague in December 1938 and found families who had fled the rise of the Nazis in Germany and Austria, living in desperate conditions with little or no shelter and food, and under threat of Nazi invasion. He immediately realized it was a race against time. How many children could he and the team rescue before the borders closed? Fifty years later, it's 1988 and Nicky lives haunted by the fate of the children he wasn't able to bring to safety in England; always blaming himself for not doing more. It's not until a live BBC television show, 'That's Life', surprises him by introducing him to some surviving children - now adults - that he finally begins to come to terms with the guilt and grief he had carried for five decades.
