3. Vertigo (PG) – 8pm, Severndroog Castle [OUTDOORS, DOG-FRIENDLY]

Vertigo is a 1958 American film noir psychological thriller film directed and produced by Alfred Hitchcock. The story was based on the 1954 novel D’entre les morts (From Among the Dead) by Boileau-Narcejac. The screenplay was written by Alec Coppel and Samuel A. Taylor.

The film stars James Stewart as former police detective John “Scottie” Ferguson. Scottie is forced into early retirement because an incident in the line of duty has caused him to develop acrophobia (an extreme fear of heights) and vertigo (a false sense of rotational movement). Scottie is hired by an acquaintance, Gavin Elster, as a private investigator to follow Gavin’s wife Madeleine (Kim Novak), who is behaving strangely.

Screening takes place in the grounds of Severndroog Castle, so please bring appropriate outdoor clothing. From 6.30pm the Castle’s Tea Room and Viewing Platform will be open from 18:30 and tickets for the viewing platform are £6 + booking fee (film screening is free). ​[More info]

4. Dean Spanley (U) – 8.30pm, Charlton House [OUTDOORS, SUBTITLED, DOG-FRIENDLY]

Bereaved son Henslowe Fisk (Jeremy Northam) reluctantly makes dutiful weekly visits to his distant father Horatio (Peter O’Toole) who has withdrawn from the world following the loss of his wife, youngest son and still-missed childhood dog. Fate offers a distraction in the form of a public talk about reincarnation at which they encounter the new clergyman, the slightly eccentric Dean Spanley (Sam Neill).

The Dean is later found enjoying a private bottle of Imperial Tokay at Fisk Senior’s club and at a third coincidental meeting later that day an intrigued Fisk Junior introduces himself properly. Indicating that he has a rare bottle of Tokay he invites the Dean for dinner where he discovers that the drink has a very particular and peculiar effect on his guest, with strange reminiscences of what seems to be a previous life as a much-loved pet dog, cruelly separated from its master.

Film will be subtitled and pizza will be available to buy, or you can bring a picnic. There will also be a tiny raffle for a small prize (for people and pooches).
