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.
Friday 8th September
Balerno Village Screen is a community cinema free to attend and funded by donations. From Autumn 2017 we are suggesting a minimum donation of £4. We ask that you reserve a free ticket in advance (via the button above) to help us manage numbers. We also ask that if you can no longer attend to cancel your ticket to allow someone else to see the film.
Tickets are also available via the Mill Cafe or you can book and print your tickets at Balerno Library (staff are happy to help).
