Stanhoe Village Screen:–

We start our Spring season with Suffragette (12A) Friday 29th January 7:30pm.

A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality. Maud (wonderfully played by Carey Mulligan) was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller. It is also heart-breaking and inspirational.

Happy New Year by Stanley Cooper:–

The first of January rolls around
Like clockwork it appears
I find its timing most profound
As it brings us each new year.

Right on time, it’s never late
Has never ever blown it
Apparently this wise old date
Refuses to postpone it.

Drink a toast to January one
For annual consistence
Its coming means the old year’s done
Let’s drink to its persistence.
