Hawkhurst

The Elephant Man (1980) (12A) 123mins

Dr. Frederic Treves discovers Joseph (John) Merrick in a sideshow. Born with a congenital disorder, Merrick uses his disfigurement to earn a living as the "Elephant Man." Treves brings Merrick into his home, discovering that his rough exterior hides a refined soul, and that Merrick can teach the stodgy British upper class of the time a lesson about dignity. Merrick becomes the toast of London and charms a caring actress before his death at 27.

Starring John Hurt, Anthony Hopkins, Anne Bancroft, Pauline Quirk, Deirdre Costello, Stromboli, Frederick Treves, Patricia Hodge, Hannah Gordon, Michael Elphick, Freddie Jones, Wendy Hiller, Lesley Dunlop, Dexter Fletcher, John Standing, Helen Ryan and John Gielgud.

 

David Lynch is an American filmmaker and screenwriter who is known for his uniquely disturbing and mind-bending visual work, with his films combining the cheerfully mundane with the shockingly macabre. Although Lynch has never received an Oscar (he has received 3 nominations for Best Director) in 2019 he was awarded an Academy Honary Award in 2019. He has won both the Palme D'Or and the Best Directors Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and a Golden Lion  award for lifetime achievement at the Venice Film Festival.

Each film/all tickets £9.50
