No Film Screening This Week / Jubilee

31 May 2012 / Events / Film

Due to an extra special booking this weekend and the additional Jubilee local events, we will not be screening a film over this coming weekend.

Watch out for our full summer screening programme available here soon.

With a full house here for a local wedding ceremony we felt that a general film screening would not work.

There are also lots of Jubilee celebrations happening locally – see Grasmere Village Diamond Jubilee Celebrations…

Our plan is to resume our Saturday night screenings with a full programme until the end of September.


This Week's Film is on Friday - 25th May

Thor (2011) 12A
Director: Kenneth Branagh
Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman

The powerful but arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.


The warrior Thor (Hemsworth) is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard by his father Odin (Hopkins) for his arrogance and sent to Earth to live among humans. Falling in love with scientist Jane Foster (Portman) teaches Thor much-needed lessons, and his new-found strength comes into play as a villain from his homeland sends dark forces toward Earth.

We’ve added two new outstanding beers to our bar, both coming from the excellent Coniston Brewing Co.

Bluebird Bitter

Bluebird Bitter
3.6% ABV
This is a tried and tested very popular Bitter, an award winning session ale with a golden colour and light, clean, quality taste.

Donald Campbell’s Bluebird was recovered in 2001 from Coniston Water where she had lain since the dramatic world record attempt of over 300mph on the 4th of January 1967.

Thurstein Pilsner

Thurstein Pilsner
4.8% ABV
This is a Pilsner Style top fermented Lager using hops from Southern Germany, creating an authentic crisp, clean, Continental style matured beer. Named after the name given to Coniston Water by Norse settlers

We’re hoping that they will prove popular and become a regular feature.
