A HOST of films are set to be shown at Droitwich’s Norbury Theatre following refurbishment work at the venue.

the autumn film season begins with an Education (12A) on September 1, a film written by author Nick Hornby.

A charming coming of age tale set in London in the early sixties, starring Carey Mulligan (Bleak House) with Emma Thompson, Dominic Copper (Mama Mia) and Peter Sarsgaard.

more stars cluster around the next offering, a film co-written by the late Anthony Minghella, nine (12A) on September 22 about a world famous film director played by Daniel Day Lewis, and the classic mid-life crisis.

an all star cast in this film includes Nicole Kidman, Judy Dench, Sophia Loren, Penelope Cruz, and the star of Piaf, Marion Cotlilard.

For book groups everywhere, the Lovely Bones (12A) seems to have been compulsory reading and the film version directed by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson is screened at the Friar Street threatre on October 6.

If country and western music lights your sky, then Crazy Heart (15) is showing on October 20 and stars Jeff Bridges as Bad Blake the hard drinking country music singer who’s come to the end of the road and seeks salvation with the help of Jean, played by Maggie Gyllenhaal. Jeff Bridges won a Golden Globe for his performance in this film.

Helen Mirren and Christopher Plummer star in the next showing, the last Station (15), on November 3. Helen gives a spellbinding performance as the wife of the Russian novelist Tolstoy (played by Christopher Plummer) in the final years of his life, and James McAvoy co stars as their secretary, alongside Paul Giamatti as their financial advisor.

There’s a sort of celestial connection too with the final film for the autumn season. the Time Travellers Wife (12A) will be shown on November 24, starring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams. Based on the best selling book by Audrey Niffeneggar it tells the unusal story of a man who suffers from a rare genetic disorder that sends him hunting through time, where he attempts to build a life with the beautiful young heiress he loves.

All seats cost £4.50 with screenings starting at 7.30pm. For more information visit
