Celebrating bringing films to Stafford for over 70 years
The Gatehouse Theatre has re-opened and is welcoming its customers back...
Mindful of guidance from Public Health England, we are pleased to be able to announce the start of our new Autumn 2021 season of 12 films in the Gatehouse Theatre.
We really appreciate the support you all give the Film Theatre, and thank you for your understanding during our period of closure. We will endevour to create as safe and comfortable an environment as we can.
in the Gatehouse Theatre, Eastgate Street, Stafford, is:
Director: Andrei Konchalovsy
Running Time : 120 mins
Given the events of the last year, we have consciously aimed to provide a season with several uplifting films, including this excellent opening movie.
Shot as if an actual Soviet feature film of 1962, this tells the story of the hushed-up massacre of Novocherkassk workers protesting the state-mandated price rises for essential staples. The city was subsequently sealed off while perceived ringleaders were rounded up, imprisoned or executed. The events are told through Lyuda, a middle-ranking Communist Party official who doggedly persists in believing the party line of sacrifice today for Utopia tomorrow. This is a staggering depiction of real events with intense emotional involvement, superb acting and a compulsive storyline, showing how the Communist ideals differed so much from the reality of everyday life. “Meticulous and majestic” Variety
