Join Newsome Forum and Dolly Shot Pop Up Picturehouse for this special free screening of the award winning film, as part of the Newsome 1918 activities to commemorate the end of World War One and the beginning of Votes for Women.

Suffragette is a 2015 British historical period drama about women’s suffrage in the United Kingdom.

In the early 20th century Britain, the growing suffragette movement forever changes the life of working wife and mother Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan). Galvanised by political activist Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Watts joins a diverse group of women who fight for equality and the right to vote.

Faced with increasing police action, Maud and her dedicated suffragettes must play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, risking their jobs, homes, family and lives for a just cause.

Directed by Sarah Gavron and written by Abi Morgan.

This film is rated PG-13: Parents Strongly Cautioned – some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.

Free admission. Refreshments will be on sale during the interval, including drinks, hot dogs, popcorn and ice-cream.

Organised by Newsome Ward Community Forum.
