As part of Selby Globe’s winter season of Oscar nominated films, local film fans can expect to see Hope Springs, Untouchables, Argo, Master, Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Cloud Atlas in the list of films being shown at the Town Hall over the coming months.
Eva Lambert Selby Globe Project manager said: “The Angels’ Share is a great British made film with an impressive cast.
“It’s hilarious at the start, has a unique storyline and is great entertainment throughout the whole film – this film is a must see film of 2012.”
Eva added: “There are some fabulous films on the Oscar trail this season with some potential great movies for Selby Globe.”
This month’s Silver Screen presentation is the classic My Darling Clementine, a 1946 western movie directed by John Ford, and based on the story of the Gunfight at the OK Corral between the Earp brothers and the Clanton gang. It features an ensemble cast including Henry Fonda, Linda Darnell, Victor Mature, and Walter Brennan.
The film takes place in 1882 when the Earp and Clanton families’ feud leads to the death of one of the brothers. Seeking vengeance, Wyatt returns to Tombstone and takes the job of town marshall, meeting with the local powers, Doc Holliday and the Clantons, again and again in order to find out who was responsible.
In the meantime, a young woman from Boston named Clementine Carter arrives in town she is given a room at the same hotel when Wyatt and Doc Holliday stay.
Much of the film was shot in the beautiful Monument Valley, a scenic desert region straddling the Arizona-Utah border and used in other John Ford movies.
Silver screen shows also include lunch in the ticket price!
