To Kill A Mockingbird (PG) | Thursday 13th October  | 7pm

A white woman accuses a black man of rape in a Southern town during the Depression. Though he is obviously innocent, the outcome of his trial is such a foregone conclusion that no lawyer will step forward to defend him – except Atticus Finch, the town’s most distinguished citizen. His compassionate defence costs him many friendships but earns him the respect and admiration of his two motherless children.

No.6 are pleased to be showing this the winner of Lottery Slottery.

When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush.

Café Society (12A) | Thursday 20th October  | 4pm

After landing a job with his uncle, Bobby falls for Vonnie, a charming woman who happens to be his employer’s mistress. Settling for friendship but ultimately heartbroken, Bobby returns to the Bronx and begins working in a nightclub. Everything falls into place when he finds romance with a beautiful socialite, until Vonnie walks back into his life and captures his heart once again.

Barry Lyndon (12A) | Friday 21st October  | 7pm

In this adaption of William Makepeace Thackeray’s novel about the exploits of an 18th century Irish adventurer, Ryan O’Neal stars as Redmond Barry (later Barry Lyndon) and Marisa Berenson is Lady Lyndon. Only a cinema screen can do justice to the stunning visuals of Barry Lyndon. Kubrick went to incredible lengths in his research of the period in order to re-create it accurately. Inspired by painters such as Thomas Gainsborough and William Hogarth, the film has a beautiful, painterly look, enhanced by filming in natural or historically accurate light sources. Some scenes were lit only by candlelight, captured by the Oscar-winning cinematographer John Alcott.

Captain Fantastic (PG) | Saturday 22nd October  | 7pm

Determined to shield his family from the decadence and distractions of modern life, an eccentric father raises his six children in a remote forest in the Pacific Northwest. But when his wife commits suicide, the kids are forced to interact with the outside world for the first time as he takes them on a road trip to New Mexico for her funeral.
