Miss Caledonia image

Miss Caledonia


The year is 1955. Desperate to escape the chicory-pulling, stall-cleaning, hay-baling drudgery of life in Caledonia, Peggy Ann Douglas has a plan.

Following in the footsteps of starlet Debbie Reynolds, Peggy Ann will simply become a movie star – and she will begin her journey to the top by winning the local pageant.

Can she sing, twirl and pivot her way into the judges’ hearts, or will shaky nerves and a “Puritanical Work Ethic” sabotage her efforts? Suitable for 12+

Film: A Most Wanted Man (15)

When a brutally tortured, half-Chechen half-Russian immigrant turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community claiming his father's ill-gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest. 

As the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish his true identity - oppressed victim or extremist bent on destruction?

Based on the John le Carré novel of the same name, A Most Wanted Man gives us a contemporary twist on this tale of intrigue, love, rivalry and politics. Completed shortly before his death, Philip Seymour Hoffman stars as the German espionage agent intent on revealing the truth.

Wednesday 6 May, 7.30pm and Tuesday 12 May, 2pm
