The Phantom of Open (12A) at Number 8, Pershore

Another opportunity to see this comedy drama about pursuing your dreams that delighted audiences when we screened it in the spring.

Starring Mark Rylance, Sally Hawkins and Rhys Ifans The Phantom of the Open tells the unbelievable true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a crane operator and optimistic dreamer from Barrow-in-Furness who, with the support of his family and friends, managed to gain entry to the 1976 British Open qualifying, despite never playing a round of golf before.

With pluckiness and unwavering self-belief, Maurice pulls off a series of stunning, hilarious and heartwarming attempts to compete at the highest level of professional golf, drawing the ire of the golfing elite but becoming a British folk hero in the process.

Directed by Craig Roberts.
