New Dot Cinema returns this Friday

* Olivia Colman and Anthony Hopkins in The Father.

Following on from an event as part of Llangollen Fringe Festival, New Dot Cinema is set to return this week with The Father.

The film features an Oscar-winning performance by Anthony Hopkins, as a fiercely independent 80-year old who fights against the carers that his daughter Anne (Olivia Colman) tries to put in place.

Despite his protestations that he doesn't need help, his worsening dementia and Anne's changing circumstances, force both of them to come to terms with his deteriorating grip on reality.

In line with new Welsh rules, everyone must present an NHS Covid pass when attending the cinema.

The pass can be used to prove vaccinated status or recent negative Covid test. You can read New Dot’s Covid information on the newly updated website:

Reflecting on the last year, New Dot volunteer Jen Rush said: "We’ve been poised, waiting and hoping to restart the cinema for so long. 

"As the pandemic unfolded and continued longer than I think any of us could have anticipated, it became difficult as volunteers to plan events, only for them to be cancelled.

"Our goal now is to re-grow the cinema and welcome back our audience. We’ve always worked to make the cinema sustainable – we want it to be part of Llangollen for many years to come – so, we’ve had a slight set-back, but with the help of some Film Hub Wales funding we hope this will be our return to regular monthly screenings.’

* The Father will be screened on Friday November 19 at Llangollen Town Hall. Tickets can be bought online here:
