Stanhoe Village Screen has two films coming up for the autumn season.

On Monday, October 17 at 7.30pm is ‘The Phantom of the Open’ (12; comedy/drama/sport).

The film tells the remarkable true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a crane operator and optimistic dreamer from Barrow-in-Furness who managed to gain entry to the 1976 British Open qualifying, despite never having played a round of golf before.

Maurice pulls off a series of stunning, hilarious and heart-warming attempts to compete at the highest level of professional golf, drawing the ire of the golfing elite but becoming a British folk hero in the process. Starring Mark Rylance and Sally Hawkins.
