Welcome to Pilton Cinema

Winter to Spring Programme

Friday 24th February at 7.45pm

The Social Network

120 min, Cert. 12A, 2010
'The Social Network' explores the moment at which Facebook, the most revolutionary social phenomena of the new century, was invented -- through the warring perspectives of the super-smart young men who each claimed to be there at its inception. The result is a drama rife with both creation and destruction; one that audaciously avoids a singular POV, but instead, by tracking duelling narratives, mirrors the clashing truths and constantly morphing social relationships that define our time.
The Social Network won three Oscars in 2011 including Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Score. It was nominated for a further 5 including Best Motion Picture of the Year.
The Social Network
Because it has not been possible to book 'Mr Turner', we have changed the March film to 'I, Daniel Blake' and will show 'Mr Turner' when available.
Friday 30th March at 7.45pm

I, Daniel Blake

100 min, Cert. 15, 2016
Daniel Blake (59) has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know, some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern-day Britain.
Nominated for 4 BAFTAs, including Best Film, and won 2 BIFAs, including Best Actor.
