April 2022 Film Night



TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY The  adaptation of John le Carré’s novel. A retired spy, George is summoned by the Government to investigate a furtive case. With a secret Soviet agent assumed to be working within their system, will George be able to unveil his identity?

“The movie brilliantly conjures up the heavy weather of Le Carré’s spy game.”

“This Tinker Tailor is a weightless, slo-mo nightmare taking place in what looks like an aquarium filled with poison gas instead of water: I found it more gripping and involving than any crash-bang action picture, and it is anchored by Gary Oldman’s tragic mandarin, a variation on Alec Guinness .”

“What a treat this film is, and what an unexpected thrill.”

There will again be some Covid measures in place to make it as safe as possible for everyone attending and consequently there may be a limit on the number of tickets for sale.

So please buy your ticket in advance at Harting Stores or order via and pay for them on the door, so as to avoid disappointment by arriving and finding that it is sold out.

The price of tickets is £6 and the doors will be open at 7pm, and the bar will be open until the film starts at 7.30pm. There will be one interval when the bar will also be open, and ice creams will be available too.
