George Bailey has spent his entire life giving of himself to the people of Bedford Falls. He has always longed to travel but never had the opportunity in order to prevent rich skinflint Mr. Potter from taking over the entire town. All that prevents him from doing so is George’s modest building and loan company, which was founded by his generous father. But on Christmas Eve, George’s Uncle Billy loses the business’s $8,000 while intending to deposit it in the bank. Potter finds the misplaced money and hides it from Billy. When the bank examiner discovers the shortage later that night, George realizes that he will be held responsible and sent to jail and the company will collapse, finally allowing Potter to take over the town. Thinking of his wife, their young children, and others he loves will be better off with him dead, he contemplates suicide.

CINEMA | PETERLOO | FRIDAY 25 JANUARY

‘Grit and brilliance’ ★★★★★ The Guardian

Mike Leigh’s new film, set in 1819, tells the story of the British forces’ attack on a peaceful pro-democracy rally in Manchester

An epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre, where a peaceful pro-democracy rally at St Peter’s Field in Manchester turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of over 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty. Many protesters were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.

CINEMA | TUESDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: BLADE RUNNER | TUESDAY 12 MARCH

Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford: a blade runner must pursue and terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth.

This is the first of our new regular event, Tuesday Night at the Movies, showing iconic feature films from the past which you may have missed first time round or are dying to see again on a big screen.

In the 21st century, a corporation develops human clones to be used as slaves in colonies outside the Earth, identified as replicants. In 2019, a former police officer is hired to hunt down a fugitive group of clones living undercover in Los Angeles.

Shown in the Scott-approved Final Cut version, it’s a visually remarkable and achingly human sci-fi masterpiece, set in a dystopian Los Angeles of 2019 – note the year.

CINEMA | TUESDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS | TUESDAY 26 MARCH

The second outing for our new regular film night — which presents iconic films from the past — features a 1940s satire about a Hollywood film director who longs to make socially relevant dramas.

He sets out on a journey of self-discovery, only to learn the value of creating laughter. Sullivan is a successful, spoiled, and naive director of fluff films, with a heart-o-gold, who decides he wants to make a film about the troubles of the downtrodden poor. Much to the chagrin of his producers, he sets off in tramp’s clothing with a single dime in his pocket to experience poverty first-hand, and gets some reality shock.

Written and directed by Preston Sturges and starring Joel McCrea and Veronica Lake.

Duration: 90 mins
