IF YOU are thinking about visiting the cinema this week, The Llanelli Herald has compiled a guide of the films that are available to watch when visiting.

Below are the films listed for this week’s showing in Llanelli Odeon:

 

Daddy’s Home

220x320_5d3c25db791e9cea289f064198131b62Sarah has recently married Brad, a mild-mannered radio executive who’s trying to be the best step-dad he can to her kids. But now, ‘Daddy’s Home’, when Sarah’s ex-husband Dusty returns.

Brad is dedicated and kind, but a little uptight and not exactly cool. Dusty rides a motorbike and seems determined to make Brad look like an idiot. Soon, the two of them are locked in a dad versus step-dad battle for the children’s affection.

See Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell engage in an increasingly absurd display of one-upmanship in ‘Daddy’s Home’, and be thankful for the relative normalcy of your own family.

Joy

220x320_6eeceb3828737577b39b877af5c28e29

Jennifer Lawrence reunites with her ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ director David O. Russell for the true story of ‘Joy’ Mangano, who founded a business empire that spanned four generations.

Joy grew up with a domineering father and put her life on hold when her parents divorced. But she eventually got sick of dealing with her family and struck out on her own, founding a hugely successful business. But big money always attracts the interests of the Mob.

Reuniting Lawrence, Russell, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, ‘Joy’ is the story of one woman’s determination to take on the world, no matter the cost.

The Danish Girl

220x320_b47d6486a773b6ee735149f42cd97ee0Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne takes on his next great acting challenge for ‘The Danish Girl’, playing Lili Elbe, one of the first known people to undergo gender reassignment surgery.

Born Einar Wegener, she gradually realised that she was a woman trapped in a man’s body. In the 1920s, such a thing was unheard of. The surgery had never been attempted before. But it was Lili’s only chance to be the person she was supposed to be.

A moving drama about a timely, untold story, ‘The Danish Girl’ also stars Alicia Vikander and is directed by Academy Award winner Tom Hooper.

In The Heart Of The Sea

220x320_7947f65b8a684386ee6ba446989b6237‘In The Heart Of The Sea’ is the true story of the whaling ship Essex, which was attacked at sea by a terrifyingly large and ferocious bull sperm whale.

Shipwrecked over 1000 miles from land, the crew spend 90 days marooned on the ocean, desperately trying to escape the whale and get to South America. But with little in the way of food and water, they must turn to desperate measures to survive.

From Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard, ‘In The Heart Of The Sea’ stars Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy and Ben Whishaw as Herman Melville, whose book ‘Moby-Dick’ was inspired by these events.

Published

on

“Children and families are at the heart of our festival this year,” announces festival vice chair Debbie Ince. “On Friday 18th November the festival stalls will start trading at 10am but in the evening there will be the official opening, followed at 6:15pm by Santa coming through town on his sleigh. A children’s Lantern procession from CK to King Street led by Llandeilo Primary School’s Samba group will meet Santa on King Street to tunes by the Llandeilo Town Band and bilingual hymn singer Ffion Haf. Once the children had their fill of Santa, the Christmas Lights will be switched on by Mayor Gordon Kilby. Local legend singer and actor Harry Luke and Ffion Haf will entertain the crowd until 8pm.”

A spectacular and pet-friendly Laser Show will replace the controversial fireworks at 8pm. “There’s also a tea cup ride on King Street for kids,” adds Ince. “On Saturday and Sunday kids can go to Santa’s Grotto 10 – 4, and on Saturday to St Teilo’s Church or Hengwrt for activities. At our park and ride on Beechwood Estate ‘Sgiliau’ will be open for our youngest visitors.”

The stage will host a variety of acts: from school and adult choirs, bands, solo singers and dance groups, such as Mixed Youth Group, Lotus Sisters Belly dancers and Sunflowers Wales. Cooking demonstrations on Saturday and a Santa Run on Sunday morning round up the festival programme. You can find updates on the Llandeilo Town App Dyma Llandeilo.”

Popular physical activity game Beat the Street gets underway in Llanelli

Published

on

BEAT THE STREET is a free, interactive game that encourages people of all ages to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives by rewarding teams with points and prizes the further they walk, cycle and roll.

There are prizes for the teams that travel the furthest with vouchers for books and sports equipment. There is a total points leader board and an average leader board so opportunities for teams of all sizes to win.

Beeping and flashing sensors called Beat Boxes will be placed on lampposts around the area for the duration of the six-week game. Primary school pupils will be provided with a player pack containing a map and a card for the child and an accompanying adult. The wider community can pick up a contactless card from a distribution point listed at www.beatthestreet.me/llanelli

Players then travel between the contactless Beat Boxes scoring points with their cards as they go. The further players travel, the more points they score for their community or school team. Each week is themed with different activities to help participants get the most out of their Beat the Street experience.

Beat the Street Llanelli is provided by Intelligent Health, commissioned by Carmarthenshire County Council and is supported by Sport Wales.

Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Leisure Culture and Tourism Cllr Gareth John, said: “We are delighted to bring this innovative and compelling game to Llanelli and we can’t wait to see how far everyone is able to walk, run, cycle and scoot. The game brings a competitive element to physical activity, but more than that, unites communities, helps people get to know their local area, reduces carbon emissions and improves both physical activity and mental health.”
