Flicks in the Sticks

Ashford Carbonell Village Hall have worked with Flicks in the Sticks for some years now – some huge audiences, some not so huge!  We average six performances a year – three in the Spring (February/March/April) and three in the Autumn/Winter (October/November/December.  Our team works very hard together with the amazing Flicks people to find films that our villagers, their family and friends would like to see, especially important given we have the Assembly Room film programme to consider which obviously is also close for many of our regular attendees.
Timing 7.30pm, price £5, bar available.

We hope you enjoy the selection – Liz and Clare

  • Victoria & Abdul – Tuesday 13 February
  • Goodbye Christopher Robin – Tuesday 13 March
  • Murder on the Orientent Express – Tuesday 10 April


First of all, our apologies for having had to cancel ‘Their Finest’ in December –
a disappointment to many I know, even to me as I’d seen it before! No accounting for
the weather of course…. Rest assured it will be reinstated for our 2018 Autumn/Winter
Season. Now for our Spring offerings which we hope will interest you :
Tuesday 13th February – VICTORIA AND ABDUL
The extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s (Academy Award winner Judi Dench) remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favour with the Queen herself. As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle all attempt to destroy. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity. Directed by Stephen Frears.

This film gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne and his son Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh. Along with his mother Daphne (Margot Robbie), and his nanny Olive (Kelly Macdonald), Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family? Starring Domhnall Gleeson and Alex Lawther, directed by Simon Curtis.

What starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told. From the novel by best-selling author Agatha Christie and a remake of the original film, “Murder on the Orient Express” tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again. Kenneth Branagh directs and leads an all-star cast in-cluding Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad.


Just to alert you, we’ve been advised by Flicks that the expected availability dates for the second two films are fine at the moment, but there is a very small possibility of change. We will of course keep you informed by means of the magazine should there be any changes in the schedule – dates will re-main the same.
All films start at 7.30, no prior booking is necessary and of course the Bar will be open!
