A second performance of the Oscar- and BAFTA-winning British box office phenomenon The King's Speech (Certificate 12A) will be screened in Dulverton Town Hall on Sunday May 22 at 7.30 pm after a sell-out performance on Friday (May 20), and tickets for Sunday evening's performance are selling fast.
The King's Speech stars Colin Firth as the Queen's father George VI, known to the family as Bertie, who reluctantly became king when his brother Edward abdicated. George VI courageously fought to overcome a severe speech defect so that he could address the nation in her hour of need and lead the country when British resilience was tested to its limit by the devastation of the Second World War.
Geoffrey Rush plays the maverick speech therapist who helped the king to find his voice, and Helena Bonham Carter plays Elizabeth the queen mother.
The film will be shown on a 17ft x 8ft screen using a commercial cinema-scale digital projector with a custom-built surround sound system.
Tickets costing £2 for Dulverton Films members, £4 for non-members and £2.50 for over 12s, accompanied by adult, are available from Dulverton Post Office, or contact Jan Ross on 01398 323818.
Tickets may also be available on the door for £4. Doors open and light refreshments, including wine, will be available from 7pm.
