The Old Oak – April 7 & 8


2023-2024 Season Plans


Note some dates changes


We have been able to schedule our sixth film in the Winter 2024 series.  It is “The Old Oak”, directed by Ken Loach.  You may remember Loach from other of his films we have presented – “I Daniel Blake”, “The Angel’s Share” and “The Wind that Shakes the Barley”.  “The Old Oak” will be Loach’s final film of his long and illustrious career.

To learn more about this film, select the following from the menu:


Films > Winter 2024 > The Old Oak


It will be shown on April 7 & 8.

In order to fit it into our schedule, we have moved “My Mother’s Men” to March 24 & 25.


2023-2024 Season Plans


You can click the “Buy a Multi-Film Pass” button at the top of this page.


But for the first film of the series, we will also set up a desk at the theatre to take registrations for the Winter pass.  We will have a paper form that you can fill in with your contact and credit card information.  We will then fill in your info into our system and at our next film have your printed pass ready for you.  This should help some of you who are not able to obtain a pass on our website.  


We still would appreciate if you could try to make your pass purchase on our website as it helps us to streamline the process.  If you have difficulty at any point, feel free to email us with your phone number and we can arrange to call you to walk you through it,

One of our subscribers wanted you all to know that her niece has won first prize for her pitch at the Hamilton Filmfest and is now crowd source fundraising to make this film happen.  Here is more info from Leah:

The film is called Have Your Cake, and I wrote the screenplay and will be directing and acting in it as well. I’ve been connecting with some filmmakers here in Hamilton and we have an amazing team of people helping to bring this project to life.


However, the biggest obstacle to these kinds of projects is the cost. We are very lucky to have been awarded a small grant from the City of Hamilton, the first place prize at this year’s Pitch Competition at the Hamilton Film Festival, and in-kind donations of some equipment and props for this film!


Now we’ve launched a 30-day crowdfunding campaign to help us reach our final budget goal. You can learn more about the project and make contributions if you are able and willing at this link:


It is hard and scary to be asking for money, and it feels somewhat frivolous with the current/constant horrific world events. But creation is the antidote to destruction. And this project is so deeply important and personal to me, and I think it has the potential to be for many others too.


Thank you so much for your interest and support! I can’t wait to share with you what we make.
