Our film for March is Red Joan (cert. 12A), to be shown on the 3rd March, commencing at 7.30pm.
Red Joan is the story of Joan Stanley (Dame Judi Dench), who was exposed as the K.G.B.'s longest-serving British spy. English-born Joan, a Soviet and Communist Party sympathizer, becomes employed as a British government civil servant, and gets recruited by the K.G.B. in the mid 1930s. After successfully transferring nuclear bomb secrets to Soviet Russia, which enables them to keep up with the west in the development of atomic weapons, she goes on to remain undetected as a spy for over a half a century.
Admission on the door £5, freshly brewed coffee, refreshments and bar available.
