Oasis film in new season on Stephen Joseph Theatre big screen


Local actress Joanne Froggatt tops the cinema bill at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre next month in a line-up which also features a new film about Manchester band Oasis, the latest from British director Ken Loach and two new thrillers.

Downton Abbey star Joanne, who was born in Littlebeck, near Whitby, and was a member of the SJT’s youth group, Rounders, plays the lead in Starfish, which tells the story of a couple whose love is tested to its limit after their perfect life falls apart in a single moment.

The month kicks off with The Girl with All the Gifts. Glenn Close, Gemma Arterton and Paddy Considine star in an inventive spin on the classic zombie movie.

It’s followed by Supersonic, the keenly anticipated new in-depth documentary on Oasis.

The McCarthy will also screen I, Daniel Blake, Ken Loach’s drama about a joiner in the North East.

Psychological thriller The Girl on the Train comes to the McCarthy in November. Emily Blunt stars in the movie based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Paula Hawkins.

Also in the McCarthy through the month is a programme of live and encore streamings.
