When four high-school kids discover an old video game console with a game they've never heard of--Jumanji--they are immediately drawn into the game's jungle setting, literally becoming the avatars they chose: gamer Spencer becomes a brawny adventurer (Dwayne Johnson); football jock Fridge loses (in his words) "the top two feet of his body" and becomes an Einstein (Kevin Hart); popular girl Bethany becomes a middle-aged male professor (Jack Black); and wallflower Martha becomes a badass warrior (Karen Gillan). What they discover is that you don't just play Jumanji--you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they'll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves--or they'll be stuck in the game forever...
This is a crowd-pleasing, fun and funny film with an amazing cast including the hilarious Jack Black. So come along with your family and friends for a great afternoon.

All the Money in the World
ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.
The film made headline news when Kevin Spacey, who originally portrayed J. Paul Getty, was accused of sexual misconduct. The role was recast with Christopher Plummer and scenes were reshot only a month before the film's cinema release. However, at 88 years old, Christopher Plummer became the oldest acting Oscar nominee following his nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role at the 2018 Academy Awards.
The film is biographical crime thriller directed by Ridley Scott and written by David Scarpa. It's based on the book 'Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the heirs of J. Paul Getty' written by John Pearson.
Rated 15 for strong violence, threat and language.

The Italian Job
Shere Village Cinema is once again proud to support the Shere Hill Climb on September 2nd 2018. Shere Hill Climb has become one of the most successful Hill Climb events in the UK. In only 5 years it has become a great, eclectic event with 175 vehicles running the hill, an autotest, motoring stands and stalls, family entertainment and an affordable social day of fun in beautiful countryside. More details about the event can be found at http://www.sherehillclimb.co.uk/
After enjoying a fun day out at the event, come along to the Shere Village Cinema to watch the classic film The Italian Job.
The quintessential British caper film of the 1960s, The Italian Job is a flashy, fast romp that chases a team of career criminals throughout one of the biggest international gold heists in history. Michael Caine is Charlie Croker, a stylish robber and skirt-chaser just out of British prison. Shunning rehabilitation for recidivism, Croker takes over "The Italian Job," a complicated plan to hijack gold bullion from Italy -- right from underneath the noses of the Italian Police and the Mafia. The job, whose original mastermind was murdered, clearly requires the sponsorship of a richer, more established criminal than Croker. He turns to the auspices of the eccentric Mr. Bridger (Noël Coward in his last film role), a suave, regal, incarcerated English crime boss with a peculiar fascination with the Queen. Bridger provides Croker with a quirky group of Britain's most infamous computer hackers (including a lascivious Benny Hill), bank robbers, hijackers, and getaway drivers -- the ex-con is soon well on his way to relieving Italy of the gold.
