Talkies programme is suspended until government guidance enables us to re-start our events. In the mean time we bring you a curated set of films, some from our back catalogue, others that we think you will like.

As well as a little bit of information about the film, we have provided a link for where you can view it. Talkies gets no commission for these links – we hope you find this information valuable.
