Showing next on Tuesday 23 April at 8.30pm
Bergman: A Year in a Life [Bergman - ett år, ett liv]

director: Jane Magnusson
starring: Ingmar Bergman, Lena Endre, Thorsten Flinck
Bergm an: A Year in a Life

1957 was a turbulent but busy and difficult year for celebrated Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman, who as well as directing two masterpieces in The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries and working extensively in theatre and TV, had to juggle a complicated private life. Documentary filmmaker Jane Magnusson uses this as a springboard for a fascinating character study that widens to explore Bergman's many creative achievements, his strengths and failings as a man, and the manner in which his art was drawn from his life.


 


Why our films (usually) have to start promptly at 8.30pm

Although our films are scheduled to start at 8.30pm, on busier nights we've always been able to hold up the start until everyone is in and seated. With the arrival of digital projection, however, this has all changed. Most of the films we screen now arrive as high definition digital files that are coded to play at a specific time, over which the projectionist has no control. This means that the film has to start playing at 8.30pm or not at all. Thus to avoid potentially missing the start of the film, it's worth arriving in good time for the screening.

Please note that some longer films will be scheduled to start at 8pm.
