Withnail and I (15)
Friday, November 11th 2016

Slight change of plan. Due to circumstances entirely beyond our control, we’re now going to start the new season in November with a classic. Withnail and I is a cult favorite on many ‘all-time favourite film’ lists. A dark comedy that tells the sorry tale of two unemployed–and constantly drunk—actors. The destitute pair take refuge in the country only to discover it’s all a horrible mistake as they face foul weather, hostile locals and empty cupboards. With a brilliant script, impeccable acting, it’s not hard to see why many consider it one of the best—if not the best—British comedy ever made. If you’ve seen it before, you’ll discover a new gem of a line, if you’ve never seen it, come and see what you’ve been missing.

And, New Dot returns to the Town Hall for the Autumn season. We’ll be upstairs so take your seats in the balcony for this comedic treat on Friday, November 11th. Doors open at 7.30pm, film starts at 8pm. Tickets: £8; £6 conc. Buy them from Baileys or online here.

Withnail and I (1987, 15)

November 11, 2016, 7:30pm - November 11, 2016, 10:03pm

Llangollen Town Hall

Our first film of the season and we will be trying out a new seating area to add atmosphere, but this will mean less seats so get your tickets while you can. Doors open at 7.30pm Main feature starts at 8.00pm Tickets £8 Concession £6 Licensed Bar Venue: The Council Chamber Llangollen Town Hall Parade Street. Llangollen LL20 8PW Synopsis: It's London, 1969 and the only thing we see swinging is a wrecking ball. Two frozen actors (Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann) are holed up against the cold making enemies with the world while waiting for their big break in what ought to be a squat, making S.O.S. calls to their elusive agents, signing on the dole and drinking themselves daft. They embark on an ill-advised sojourn to The Lake District to recuperate with Withnail's "terrible ****" Uncle Monty (Richard Griffiths) in romantic hot pursuit. Director: Bruce Robinson Year: 1987 Genre(s): Black Comedy Cast includes: Paul McGann, Richard E. Grant, Richard Griffiths, Ralph Brown Certificate: 15 (contains strong language and drug references) Main feature running time: 107 minutes Language: English REVIEWS "Withnail and I was regarded for many years as a cult film but stands now as one of the finest British films of the Eighties. And what's not to like about a film with the line: "Don't threaten me with a dead fish"? Martin Chilton, The Telegraph A bittersweet film about the lost potential of an era too often sugarcoated, Withnail and I may itself have succumbed to student drinking games and second-hand chic, but the red-eyed mania, profane dialogue and deeply felt melancholy keep it endlessly re-watchable, and the closing scene of a lonely, rain-drenched Grant delivering his Hamlet to an indifferent pack of wolves pulls a haunting curtain down over one of the most divinely wretched performances in cinema. Barry Convex "A witty, florid, predatory queen of the old school. Every line is a quotable joy, and Ralph Brown’s lugubrious dealer Danny has also ascended to legendary status. I feel an intense envy for people who are about to see this for the first time." Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
