South Bank Community Cinema – alternate Fridays

SBCC screen films on alternate Fridays at Clements Hall. For all evening showings the bar is open at 7.30pm with the film starting at 8pm, and there's informal seating at tables and a fully licensed bar.

Tickets are £4, or just £3 for members (membership is £5 for the year). You can buy them on the door or up to two weeks in advance from Cycle Heaven on Bishopthorpe Road or from the Hall itself.

This spring our films celebrate gastronomy and the way food and drink enrich the human experience - there is plenty to whet the appetite.

Upcoming films:

8 March Babette’s Feast (Babettes gæstebud) U (1987 Gabriel Axel) 103mins

Perhaps one of the most fondly-remembered winners of the American Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film, revisit Babette’s journey from nineteenth century France to Denmark. Contrasting austere Danish rural life with the exuberance and enjoyment of French gastronomy, Parisienne Babette’s arrival in the lives of two sisters creates a beautiful and touching film which culminates in one of the most sumptuous meals to ever grace the screen.


22 March Back to Burgundy (Ce qui nous lie) 15 (2017 Cédric Klapisch) 113 mins

The charms and realities of that most quintessential of French industries – wine-making – are beautifully evoked in this recent film. When their father becomes ill, three siblings return to the family vineyard and have to find ways to come together for the good of the farm. Capturing the picturesque Burgundian scenery alongside well-judged performances, director Cédric Klapisch once again shows his sure touch for droll dramas of family life which has earned him acclaim and success at the French box-office and beyond.

We round off the season with an Italian comedy gem. The laid-back Gianni’s summer takes an unexpected course when his landlord’s mother comes to stay in consideration of unpaid rent. Shortly joined by his doctor’s mother, when he also wants to go away, Gianni finds himself with a Roman holiday full of surprises.

Afterwards, we will have drinks and antipasti (at 7.30pm for those not attending the AGM) before the film begins.

Please note that licensing arrangements are constantly changing and so on occasion we are unable to show the planned film for reasons beyond our control.
