Events in Staithes


Staithes Cinema Club has just announced the April film.

The Old Oak - Saturday 18th May, 7:30pm 

At Staithes Village Hall, Cliff Rd, TS13 5AD

We're back at Staithes Village Hall for our May film, The Old Oak by Ken Loach. Loach has said it may well be his final film. The Old Oak is the last pub standing in a north east village that's never been the same since the mining industry ended. The pub's future is in the balance... when a bunch of Syrian refugees arrive.

Reviewer Peter Bradshaw wrote:
[Ken Loach] is the fierce plain-speaker of political indignation with a style that is unironised and unadorned, shot by Robbie Ryan in simple daylit fashion, using first-timers and non-professionals in front of the camera. It is a film-making language utterly without the cynical twang that is de rigueur for everyone else. Thirty years ago, the mischief makers of Lars von Trier and Dogme 95 were talking about radical minimalism. They didn’t stick to it; Loach did. I hope that this isn’t Loach’s final film, but if it is, he has concluded with a ringing statement of faith in compassion for the oppressed.
