MIDNIGHT COWBOY (X)

At 8.00 pm (Doors open 7.30pm), Scrooby Village Hall

Convinced of his irresistible appeal to women, Texas dishwasher Joe Buck (Jon Voight) quits his job and heads for New York City, thinking he'll latch on to some rich dowager. New York, however, is not as hospitable as he imagined, and Joe soon finds himself living in an abandoned building with a Dickensian layabout named Enrico "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman). The two form a rough alliance, and together they kick-start Joe's hustling career just as Ratso's health begins to deteriorate.

The Greatest Showman

(Doors re-open at 7.15pm) Blu-Ray 4K Ultra-HD

Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?

  • Director: Michael Gracey

2020 at SCROOBY COMMUNITY CINEMA starts on SUNDAY JANUARY 19th with

GREEN BOOK (12)

At 8.00 pm, (Doors open 7.30pm) Scrooby Village Hall

Set in 1962 America and winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture, Green Book is inspired by the heart-warming true story of working class Italian-American bouncer Tony (Tony Lip) Vallelonga (Academy award nominee Viggo Mortensen) who accepts a job as chauffeur for world-class African-American classical pianist Dr Don Shirley (two time Academy award winner Mahershala Ali). The mismatched pair, armed with the Negro Motorist Green Book - a guide for safe travel through America's racial segregation - embark on a two month tour in the racially charged Deep South. At first the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer can barely get along with their clashing attitudes to life and ideals. However, as the disparate pair witness and endure America's appalling injustices on the road, they find mutual respect for each other's talents and start to face them together. In doing so, they nurture a friendship and understanding that changes both their lives.

  • Director: Peter Farrelly
  • Written by: Nick Vallelonga, Nick Currie and Peter Farrelly
  • Music: Kris Bowers
  • Starring: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini, Sebastian Maniscalco...
  • Winner of 3 Academy Awrds and several others.
  • Running Time: 130 minutes

About Scrooby Cinema

Scrooby Community Cinema holds irregular seasons of film showings in Scrooby Village Hall. The screenings take place on Sunday evening at 8pm.

Since starting in March 2011 we have shown over 80 films with an average attendance of 17 people per show.

Scrooby Community Cinema is open to all, subject to film certification, as we are not a film club. Entrance is 4 per person, on the door; we aim to keep this charge as low as possible, hoping to make each event self supporting. The entrance fee goes towards the cost of the public film licence (currently 83.00 + VAT per showing) we are required to purchase. The fees are supplemented by our own licenced bar where a small selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are available.

Films tend to be mainstream and English-language. The audience is asked for film suggestions at each screening. If you have a favorite film, or one you think would be popular, you can suggest a film on this page.

The projection and sound equipment was donated by the Parish Council and Village Show. We have a Bluray projector and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound system.

Scrooby Community Cinema shows films in Scrooby Village Hall. Doors 7:30, start 8:00, 4 on the door, licensed bar.
