Haworth Cinema presents

The Father (12A)

Friday 10th September at 7.30pm
West Lane Baptist Centre
Adults £4, Students £2

Anthony (Anthony Hopkins) is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the carers that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman), encouragingly introduces. Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she can’t make daily visits anymore and Anthony’s grip on reality is unravelling. As we experience the ebb and flow of his memory, how much of his own identity and past can Anthony cling to? How does Anne cope as she grieves the loss of her father, while he still lives and breathes before her? THE FATHER warmly embraces real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition; heart-breaking and uncompromisingly poignant – a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives. Anthony Hopkins deservedly won the Oscar & BAFTA for Best Leading Actor. The film also won Best Adapted Screenplay.  IMDb rating 8.3, Rotten Tomatoes 98%  (97 mins)

Tickets will be available on the door. You can also book your tickets by emailing Keith at or by speaking to Keith or Chris. You can then pay on the night with cash or card.

Don’t miss this stunning film. See you Friday
