Plus… we are delighted that Balerno High School pupil and super talented musician Nate Collins will be coming along to support the night by performing a few songs before the film begins.

Manchester by the Sea screening 7:30pm on Friday 8th September

Balerno Village Screen returns for its Autumn season with Manchester by the Sea.

‘Casey Affleck is mesmerising as a Boston janitor who has to care for his dead brother’s son, in Kenneth Lonergan’s weighty study of grief and family ties’, Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Lee Chandler is a brooding, irritable loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. One damp winter day he gets a call summoning him to his hometown, north of the city. His brother’s heart has given out suddenly, and he’s been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. As if losing his only sibling and doubts about raising a teenager weren’t enough, his return to the past re-opens an unspeakable tragedy.
