Father Earth is the true story of one man’s attempt to help save the planet, by converting a derelict church on the Orkney Isles into an eco friendly recording studio. It’s also a fascinating study of a psychological power struggle between a character comedian - Graham Fellows, and his long-standing creation - John Shuttleworth. Father Earth is also about family relationships - specifically between fathers and sons - and it explores the paradox: how in the battle against extinction we are often distracted by personal and family issues, as they appear more important and pressing than the future of the planet. Funny yet moving and filmed mainly in the Orkney Isles over a 10 year period, Father Earth is Graham Fellows’ most thoughtful and accomplished movie to date. Previous work includes It’s Nice Up North filmed by Martin Parr (2004) and Southern Softies (2008) With guest appearances from Sooty and Sweep, and a virtuoso performance from Graham’s mathematically driven elderly father Derek, this 82 minute documentary will be followed by a Q&A with Graham Fellows.

2022 brings the centenary of the most influential horror film of all time. The turning point in the career of legendary director F.W. Murnau ( Sunrise, The Last Laugh), the screen's first, albeit unauthorised adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula (which itself celebrates its 125th Anniversary this year) features Max Schreck's unforgettable performance as the vampire Count Orlok, the most chilling portrayal of cadaverous evil in film history.

Although a court order to destroy the film was successfully brought by the Bram Stoker estate, some copies escaped, and subsequently gave the 20th century some of its defining images of supernatural terror and dread.

Todays presentation is accompanied on the Compton Paramount Cinema organ, itself 85 years old, by celebrated organist Donald Mackenzie.

Patience, a lesser known, but still highly popular comic-opera by Gilbert and Sullivan, is brought to Penistone in September by the accomplished West Yorkshire Savoyards company making a welcome return visit. Directed by former D’Oyly Carte star, Roberta Morrell, this is a must-see evening of beautiful music and wicked satire. One of the most topical and humorous of the G&S operas, Patience satirizes the cult of celebrity as well as the aesthetic movement of the 1870s and '80s and the empty, self-indulgent artists of the day. You'll meet languid poets, drooping, sighing maidens, and the manly dragoons who make for a hilarious evening's entertainment. This fully staged production with orchestra promises to be a treat for all.
