Freddie Mercury - the lead singer of Queen - defies stereotypes and convention to become one of history's most beloved entertainers. The band's revolutionary sound and popular songs lead to Queen's meteoric rise in the 1970s. After leaving the group to pursue a solo career, Mercury reunites with Queen for the benefit concert Live Aid - resulting in one of the greatest performances in rock 'n' roll history.

John Ottman edited the film's soundtrack. The album contains several Queen hits and 11 previously unreleased recordings, including five tracks from their 21-minute Live Aid performance in July 1985, which have never before been released in audio form.

22 September 2019

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Scrooby Community Cinema presents at 8pm Sunday 22 September 2019, O Brother, Where Art Thou? (Doors open 7.30pm) at Scrooby Village Hall.

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney) is having difficulty adjusting to his hard-labor sentence in Mississippi. He scams his way off the chain gang with simple Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson) and maladjusted Pete (John Turturro), then the trio sets out to pursue freedom and the promise of a fortune in buried treasure. With nothing to lose and still in shackles, their hasty run takes them on an incredible journey of awesome experiences and colorful characters.

The Soundtrack

A triple Grammy-winning record that ranks among the best soundtrack discs of all time reached No. 1 in America in March 2002. The O Brother, Where Art Thou? album, produced by T-Bone Burnett, is a heady mix of bluegrass, country, gospel, blues, and folk music that accompanies, and very definitely enhances, Joel and Ethan Coen?s movie of the same name. From the very start, the soundtrack was conceived as integral to the film, and it was for this reason that it was recorded before filming began. Burnett?s ideas are designed to inform the filming and to give shape to the cinematography, and it works wonderfully.

Director: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
Starring: George Clooney, JOhn Tuturro, Tim Blake Nelson, John Goodman, Holly Hunter
Screenplay: Ethan and Joel Coen, based on Homer's Odyssey
Music: T-Bone Burnett
Golden Globe for Best Actor and several other nominations
Running Time: 107 minutes
Certificate: 12

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.
