Saturday’s short from talented local film maker

As well as bringing you the best movies from around the world, we try to show some of the amazing films produced closer to home. This Saturday, before When We Were Kings, we have a brilliant twist on Hansel & Gretel to share, in the form of a short film by local, Rob Thorman. Shot in and around Great Missenden and Wendover, we think you’ll love the dark humour of the story, as well as enjoy spotting locations you recognise! Rob is currently producing (together with Ella Jones) a short film set in a parallel world where gender roles are reversed and a group of downtrodden men plan a sex strike against their wives!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory news

Have you seen the Guardian today? Featuring a previously unpublished chapter from Charlie & the Chocolate Factory found in the Roald Dahl Museum archives … Perfect timing. We are showing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory next Saturday 6th Sept at 3pm. See which version you prefer. We’ll take Gene Wilder any day… We look forward to welcoming you back to Blue Door with cake and popcorn on Saturday!



nebraska inside-llewyn-davisBefore you start renting/buying INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS and NEBRASKA (yes – we know you were tempted!), just know that they will be forming part of the Blue Door Autumn schedule.

Change of plan

We have a change of plan for June’s family film…
There have been some distribution problems with our original choice of Where the Wild Things Are. Plus a LOT of children have come and asked us if we will please show Frozen. Always ones to listen to our audience, we will now be showing Frozen at 3pm on Saturday June 7th. Come and sing along and mark the end of our second season… frozen

Three minutes of short film brilliance

Hooray! We have a great British short film to show you next Saturday 5th April at 8pm, before our screening of the box-office smash Intouchables. The brilliant Robin King has given us permission to show his wickedly funny short, Ten Thousand Pictures of You. Only three minutes long, but a great story, cleverly told.  Altogether it makes for a perfect Saturday night at the movies, we think….
