English Literature at the movies
The Roses Theatre Tewkesbury has for many years run a varied film programme, and is one of Gloucestershire's top venues for independent, art house and world cinema. This winter, supported by funding from the British Film Institute, a series of guest presenters, including University of Gloucestershire academics, will accompany film screenings and lead Q & A sessions with audiences afterwards.

Dr Debby Thacker will introduce Jean Cocteau's La Belle et La Bete (1946, certificate PG) on Sunday 7 December at 7:00pm and that seasonal favourite It's a Wonderful Life (1946, dir. Frank Capra, certificate U) on Friday 19 December at 2:00pm. Do please join us for movies and conversation this December.
