The Greatest Showman
Shere Village Cinema - Outdoor Screening
*SOLD OUT* A few tickets available at Shere Delights, Crumbs and Surrey Hills Beer and Gin Company. No tickets available on the gate.
We are so excited to be running our first outdoor cinema event on Friday, August 24th 2018, at the Shere Recreation Ground. We are showing The Greatest Showman Sing-Along which is guaranteed to have you singing your hearts out to the feel-good film of the year.
The gate opens at 6.30pm and the film begins at 8.30pm. Bring along your own picnic plus blankets or chairs to sit on.
Also, please come prepared for the British summer weather...it might rain and it can sometimes get chilly in the evening so a waterproof and warm coat is advisable. A torch will be useful to navigate in the dark and please wear suitable shoes for walking on grass.
Please show your ticket or confirmation email at the door to receive your entry wristband.
Note: The outdoor cinema is not affected by adverse weather such as rain or snow and we will continue to show the film in inclement weather conditions. The exception is if the wind speed exceeds 24mph in which case, we might need to cancel the event on the grounds of health and safety. Tickets are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled by Shere Village Cinema.
Book tickets online by clicking the link below.
Alternatively, tickets can be purchased from one of our official ticket shops at Crumbs and Shere Delights in the village.
Please book early - we are restricted (Guildford Borough Council rules) to 499 people (including support team) - so we will have to stop people attending after that point. Going above 499 people requires a much more complicated license, with applications to the council / community notification & local consultation / extra toilet, parking & first aid facilities etc ... which we were unable to arrange this year given this is our first attempt at an outdoor cinema!
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.

Journey's End is a British film adaptation of the play Journey's End by R. C. Sherriff. Written by Simon Reade and directed by Saul Dibb, it is the fifth film adaptation of the play.
March 1918. C-company arrives to take its turn in the front-line trenches of northern France, led by the war-weary Captain Stanhope (Claflin). With a German offensive imminently approaching, the officers (Bettany, Graham, Sturridge) and their cook (Jones) use food and the memories of their lives before the war to distract themselves, while Stanhope soaks his fear in whisky, unable to deal with the dread of the inevitable. A young officer, Raleigh (Butterfield), arrives fresh out of training and abuzz with the excitement of his first real posting - not least because he is to serve under Stanhope, his former schoolhouse monitor and the object of his sister's affections. Each man is trapped, the days ticking by, the tension rising and the attack drawing ever closer...
Described by the Guardian as 'horror, humour and humanity in the trenches,' Journey's End is powerful, passionate and superbly acted.

Set in the glamour of 1950's post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock's life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson's eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.
Phantom Thread was nominated for 6 Oscars and won the award for Best Achievement in Costume Design. Overall, the film received 93 nominations with 43 wins! The film also received rave reviews and is one of 2018's must-see films, especially as it is reportedly Day-Lewis's final role before retiring.
