Blockbuster films are proving a draw at Pocklington Arts Centre – but it’s the Maggie Smith vehicle The Lady in the Van which has earned a reels repeat.

Spectre, Star Wars and The Lady in the Van attracted nearly 3,000 people in under four weeks.

The Lady in the Van will be shown again on Wednesday January 20 and Thursday January 21 at 7.30pm.

“Due to several sold-out screenings we have brought the film back for two additional performances.

“Advance booking is advised as we expected a high level of interest. Maggie Smith film’s have always been hugely popular with our audiences, the Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel the venue’s most popular film of 2015,” said marketing manager James Duffy.

The centre will be screening Dad’s Army from the day of its release – Friday February 5 – for two weeks.

The reboot of the BBC sitom stars Michael Gambon, as Private Godfrey, Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring, Bill Nighy as Sergeant Wilson and Bill Paterson as Private Frazer.

Filming took place in Beverley and Bridlington.
