New Dot screens its spring offering

New Dot Cinema is celebrating the arrival of spring with its latest showing, Tulpan, this Friday, March 11.

It’s a gentle coming-of-age comedy that, although set in a strange almost alien landscape, tells a story that will be recognised by anyone, anywhere.

Asa dreams of becoming a shepherd on the remote Kazakh steppe where he lives in a yurt with his sister and her nomadic family but he must first marry.

He sets his sights on Tulpan, the only eligible woman for many miles around, who rejects him on the basis of his big ears.

Undaunted, he sets off with his best friend Boni and a photograph of Prince Charles  - as evidence that big ears are no deterrent to getting on in life - to win Tulpan’s heart.

Tickets for Tulpan are priced at £5 available at Baileys Deli in Llangollen and online at

This year, New Dot will be screening temporarily as Micro Dot in a smaller venue, the Town Hall Council Chamber.

With seating for around 35 people, tickets will be in high demand.

Delicious homemade cakes, fairtrade tea and 'real' coffee will be on offer. There’s no bar, but people are welcome to bring their own with them.

Despite the smaller venue, New Dot audiences might notice a much clearer picture this year, thanks to a new digital projector generously awarded to New Dot Cinema and Llangollen Town Council by the British Film Institute (BFI).

The source of the funding is National Lottery via the Neighbourhood Cinema Scheme.

The award forms a successful first step in securing improved cinema facilities at the town hall by New Dot.
