The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie 2

The Prime of Miss Jean Brody screening on Friday 2nd November at 7:30pm

Our Friday night film of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie will be screened in partnership with this year’s Pentlands Book Festival . 

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie was released in 1969, starring Maggie Smith and Gordon Jackson, and based on Muriel Spark’s book of the same name, set in 1930s Edinburgh.  Four (in the book, six) ten-year-old girls are assigned Miss Brodie, who describes herself as being “in my prime,” as their teacher. She, determined that they shall receive an education in the original sense of the Latin educere, “to lead out,” gives her students lessons from her personal experiences, promoting art history, classical studies, and fascism. The “Brodie set” goes to art museums, theatre, concerts, and has picnics on the school lawn, which upsets the school’s austere headmistress, who dislikes the fact that the girls are cultured to the exclusion of hard knowledge.  However, in a flash-forward we learn that one of her set will later betray Brodie, ruining her career, but she will never learn which one.

In this centenary year of Muriel Spark’s birth it is still relevant to watch a film that won Maggie Smith an Academy Award and was ranked in 2015 in The Guardian as number 79 of the 100 best novels written in English.

Resilience-still-06-1080x675

Resilience screening 6.30pm on Wednesday 24th October

October at BVS takes a different direction to our normal collection of films. The focus is the documentary Resilience: the biology of stress & the science of hope – a film by James Redford.

The film is about people and ultimately our ability to deal (or not deal) with stress.  The film chronicles the birth of a movement among paediatricians, therapists, educators, crime fighters and communities, who are using cutting-edge biological science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease. And the focus for much of this is on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

The screening will be followed by a discussion with leading Scottish Experts on Trauma: Graham Goulden, former Chief Inspector at the Violence Reduction Unit, Police Scotland, lead on MVP for school’s and Director of Cultivating Minds & Kevin Neary, Founder of Aid & Abet and Trauma Informed Activist.

greatest showman launch quad-1170x780

The Greatest Showman screening 2pm, 4:45pm and 7:30pm Saturday 29th September

BVS’ autumn season gets under way with The Greatest Showman screening on Saturday 29th September as part of the Balerno Music Festival.  Musicals have gone down well in the past so we thought we’d screen this film twice with afternoon and evening screenings in the St Joseph’s Hall.

Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. The film defied the critics to become an enduring smash and centres around the star appeal of Hugh Hackman.

Three Billboards screening 7:30pm on Saturday 16th June

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award nominee Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Academy Award winner Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.

Jumanji 2 screening 2:30pm on Saturday 16th June

In a brand new Jumanji adventure, four high school kids discover an old video game console and are drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves – or they’ll be stuck in the game forever, to be played by others without break.

breakingaway-1

Breaking Away screening at 7:30pm on Friday 15th June

For the 6th year running, Balerno Village Screen is screening in partnership with the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling. This year’s offering comes from the late 70s and is the much loved Breaking Away.

This charming, Academy Award winner (1979, Screenplay) cycles high on comedy as four friends come to terms with life after high school. When top-notch cyclist Dave (Dennis Christopher) learns that the world’s bicycling champions are always Italian, he attempts to turn himself into an Italian, driving his parents (Barbara Barrie, Paul Dooley) crazy. But everything changes after he meets the Italian racing team-an encounter that ultimately leads him and his friends (Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern, Jackie Earle Haley) to challenge the local college boys in the town’s annual bike race.
