7.30pm – “The imitation Game”
Our final film of the season, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knighley. The story of cryptanalyst Alan Turing and his team of expert code breakers in the race to break the Nazi code that was seen as being unbreakable. All the odds were against them, and even if they broke the code, it was re-coded every day, so they would have to start afresh daily. Surely an impossible task.
This film is gripping and intense from beginning to end. Come and enjoy a grand season finale. It’ll be a cracker.
