LOUTH Film Club is set to screen a double helping of Ken Loach classic ‘Kes’ on Monday (March 19).

The club will put on morning and evening screenings of the restored 1969 masterpiece at the Playhouse Cinema in Louth.

“To cater for the club’s growing membership and the large audiences we are now attracting for our more popular films, Kes will be shown at 10.30am as well as at the usual 7.30pm performancem” said a spokesperson.

“Kes follows the fortunes and misfortunes of a Yorkshire schoolboy, Billy Casper, who is bullied both at home and at school but finds solace in training the kestrel he raises from a fledgling.

“It’s a film of humour, heartbreak and humanity.

“David Bradley is excellent as Billy, as is Colin Welland as a kindly, encouraging schoolmaster. Brian Glover is hilarious as a football mad PE teacher,” they added.

Kes is Certificate PG. Both performances will be in screen two, on the ground floor.

They will be open to non-members, paying the normal Playhouse ticket prices.
