Darkest Hour – Film @ Otley Courthouse
Sep 6 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Darkest Hour - Film @ Otley Courthouse | England | United Kingdom

A thrilling and inspiring true story begins at the precipice of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history.
125 mins, PG
Starring: Gary Oldman, Lily James, Kristin Scott Thomas

National Theatre Live: Julie @ Otley Courthouse
Sep 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
National Theatre Live: Julie @ Otley Courthouse | England | United Kingdom

Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Amen Corner) feature in the cast of this brand-new production, directed by Carrie Cracknell (NT Live: The Deep Blue Sea) and broadcast live from the National Theatre to cinemas. Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late-night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean – which rapidly descends into a savage fight for survival. This new version of August Strindberg’s play Miss Julie, written by Polly Stenham, remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new setting of contemporary London.

An Evening with Archers actress Sunny Ormonde (Lilian Bellamy) @ Otley Courthouse | England | United Kingdom

Sunny has been playing the “outrageous and raunchy Lilian Bellamy” in Radio 4’s The Archers for the past 17 years and has become one of the listeners most favorite characters! Her antics have kept the nation gripped and entertained, whether it be riding round Ambridge on a Harley Davidson, drinking the Bull and Cider shed dry with Eddie Grundy, absconding to Costa Rica with her beloved and very recently departed Tiger! (Oh, the louse!) or recklessly kicking off her sling-backs and leaping into bed with Tigers brother Paul- Not to mention the Knitting, the Collagen, Calendar Girls and furlong frolics (and almost wedding) with Justin Elliot!
Sunny will fill you in on all the behind the scenes stories about the World’s longest running soap opera- an evening of anecdotes, banter, and favorite pieces from Sunny’s long and distinguished acting career. You don’t have to be an Archers listener to enjoy this highly entertaining evening!  There is something for everyone!
