Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

A true story of Desmond Doss, an army medic and conscientious objector who, during one of the bloodiest battles of World War 2, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. Directed by Mel Gibson.

‘Hacksaw Ridge uses a real-life pacifist’s legacy to lay the groundwork for a gripping wartime tribute to faith, valour and the courage of remaining true to one’s beliefs.’

This film will be shown with subtitles.

The bar will be open from 7 pm, and the programme starts at 7.30.

Admission free, donations welcome.

Members only, but you can join at the door
