Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughing stock of the struggling circus troupe. But when Holt’s children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Eva Green) swoop in to make the little elephant a star.

Another highly rated film for Broseley and beyond
War in Georgia (not the American one), where local Apkhazians are fighting to break free from Georgia. An Estonian village between the mountains has become empty since almost everyone has returned to their respective homelands.
Only two men stayed: Ivo and Margus. But Margus will leave as soon as he has harvested his crops of tangerines.
In a bloody conflict in the miniature village, wounded men are left behind, and Ivo is forced to take them in. But they are from opposite sides of the war. How do they all manage to handle it?

Although largely UK produced, it’s regarded as “world cinema” because of its setting and non-English speakers.
The spellbinding documentary follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who is fighting to become the first female eagle hunter in twelve generations of her Kazakh family.
Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate verite footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes like female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age and the onset of modernity.
Cabaret layout – 4.5 metre screen – excellent bar – full of friendliness
