Selma

Selma Twelve A

1965, Selma, a small town in Alabama, becomes the focal point of a march for the right to vote led by Dr. Martin Luther King that meets bloody resistance at the hands of the authorities. This is pitch-perfect in its details, thrusting you directly into a world of rolled-up shirtsleeves, stifling heat, and police rampages. Oyelowo is utterly convincing throughout, uniting crowds with his gripping oratory, and even better in quieter moments where we see the flawed man’s fragility. This works brilliantly as expert historical re-creation and also as powerful reflection on both how far we’ve come and how much we have still to do to tackle racism today.

I am a wheelchair user and find it difficult to go to the theatre to enjoy a good film or take in a 'bit of Culture' now and again.Flicks in The Sticks brings a lot of joy to so many people who otherwise would miss out.

Sue Macdonald

Totally loved 'The boy who bit Picasso' It was so heartwarming, funny and made me nearly cry at the end! Totally inspired me and makes me want to make theatre!

Kate Johnston

I heard the Ensemble Sakhioba and want to say what an extraordinary experience it was. A really remarkable performance - thank you for bringing them to Shropshire and I'm glad you achieved a very full audience for them.

We are regular flicks goers and we would be lost without your service. I can't tell you how much your screenings mean to people like us

Living in 'the sticks' limits access to the larger cinemas, consequently Flicks is a lovely way of seeing fairly recent films, without the hassle of planning a journey beforehand. Long may it last.

A really enjoyable experience. Friendly atomosphere and heart warming film (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) Would love the chance to do it again. What a good idea for community spirit.

Looking forward to showing films again this season. Like putting on a favourite winter coat!

I am 86 and I am a big fan of flicks. In the villages its lovely, the proper way to do it, have a glass of wine and a chat, its so much more than just a film

G.S.

Flicks is the lynch pin for most of what goes on in our village
