ever wanted to leave the car at home and walk to a local film
one with a warm friendly atmosphere, where you can chat about
afterwards with your friends?
We did, so we decided
to create a film club: Our club name, Thornbury Picture House
(TPH) , was inspired by the old cinema (1919-1959) in the High
Street, which was renowned for being the social hub of Thornbury. This
is our 14th season, just take a look at our
new programme and we have a strong membership base to take the
club forward. We meet usually once a month, for the last 8years in the
historic Cossham Hall, Chapel Street, Thornbury, BS35 2BJ.

"The Guernsey Literary and Potato
Peel Pie Society" Directed by Mike Newell
The film opens with a group of Islanders out after curfew, having
enjoyed an illicit roast pig and home-brewed gin even though strict
food rationing was in place. Facing immediate arrest, they concoct an
excuse about being members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel
Pie Society who have been enriching their minds while feeding on potato
skins. After the war a correspondence begins between Juliet Ashton (Lily
James) and members of the Society, with them sharing their experiences
of Nazi-occupied Island of Guernsey. When an idea for a book catches
Juliet, she goes to visit the island, making life-long friends and taking
life changing steps along the way.
