Close-Up Repertory Cinema I Season ( 4 - 30 August 2015:)

See below and on their website:
         
6 - 27 August: Terence Davies Trilogy

4 - 26 August: A Taste Of Honey

Jo struggles at home with her alcoholic mother and moves in with Geoff, a gay friend. Her life is thrown into turmoil when she discovers she is pregnant by a black sailor, who has since departed. The film is an outstanding example of the British New Wave.

29 - 25 August: The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner
 
Following the success of Karel Reisz’s Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Alan Sillitoe here adapted another of his works for the screen. Newcomer Tom Courtenay compelling as the sullen, disillusioned delinquent in the British New Wave classics, a passionate, explosive tale of rebellion.

13 - 21 August: Look Back In Anger

In this powerful adaptation of the John Osbourne drama, Richard Burton gives one of his finest performances on film as Jimmy Porter, an ill-tempered and arrogant young man with a grudge against the establishment and disdain for those around him.

19 - 30 August: Mademoiselle
 
Tony Richardson’s deliciously wicked film – with a script begun by Jean Genet but completed by the director when the playwright disappeared after only a week – stars Jeanne Moreau as the ostensibly prim schoolmistress of a small French village.

5 - 23 August: The Caretaker

The Caretaker illustrates many of the dominant themes in Pinter's work, exploring ideas of identity, class, power and, above all, the elusiveness of language. On every level, Pinter's characters struggle to communicate, misinterpreting each other's words and actions, often to comic effect.

7 - 16 August: The Servant

The Servant is a savage indictment of the English class system, and its waning hold over all aspects of the working and cultural life of Britain. The film plays out the struggle for power and dominance ignited by his duplicitous manservant Barrett – an energetic and genuinely ominous Dirk Bogarde.

8 - 18 August: Billy Liar

Wonderfully performed by Tom Courtenay as Billy, with his mixture of deceit and good intentions, immaturity and intelligence, Billy Liar is probably the most fun of the New Wave films – indeed the only one which is intended largely as a comedy.

12 - 28 August: Ulysses
 
It's hardly surprising that it took 45 years for someone to attempt an adaptation of James Joyce's dazzling modernist masterpiece that parallels a day in the life of unassuming Jewish advertising man Leopold Bloom with the events of Homer's Odyssey.

20 - 29 August: Saturday Night And Sunday Morning

Based on Alan Sillitoe's largely autobiographical novel, and with powerful central performances, crackling dialogue and a superb jazz score by Johnny Dankworth, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is a seminal film of the British New Wave.
