THE DUKE: In 1961, Kempton Bunton, a 60 year old taxi driver, steals Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. He sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly. What happened next became the stuff of legend. An uplifting true story about a good man who set out to change the world and managed to save his marriage. Starring Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren. Run time is 90 minutes plus there will be an interval half way through of 20 minutes.
OPERATION MINCEMEAT: In 1943, at the height of World War Two, British Intelligence agents hatched an elaborate scheme to convince the Germans that the Allied forces were planning to invade Greece rather than Sicily. The plan, code-named Operation Mincemeat, involved planting forged documents upon a dead body before setting him adrift in neutral Spanish waters, with the aim of the papers ending up in German hands. An extraordinary and true story. Starring Colin First and Matthew Macfadyen. Run time is 125 minutes plus there will be an interval half way through of 20 minutes.
