Captain America


A MARVEL comics classic comes to Clevedon’s cinema this week with the story of America’s favourite hero.

Captain America: The First Avenger (12A) focuses on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental programme during World War Two.

The experiment sees him turn into the super soldier known as Captain America.

Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil Hydra organisation, led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) to become an avenger of the modern age.

* For younger cinema-goers the animated adaptation adaptation of Mary Norton’s The Borrowers will be shown.

Arietty (U) is a story about a family of ‘little’ people.

Beneath the floorboards of a sprawling mansion set in a magical, overgrown garden in the suburbs of Tokyo, tiny 14-year-old Arietty live with her equally tiny parents.

The house is occupied by two old ladies who are unaware of the existence of their miniature tenants.

Arrietty and her family live by ‘borrowing’ - everything they have they borrow or make from the things they have borrowed.

Arrietty’s parents have always warned her to never let humans see her but she does not listen and soon she is discovered by Sho, a 12-year-old human boy living in the mansion.

The two begin to confide in each other and before long a friendship begins to blossom.

* Both films will be shown at The Curzon Community Cinema in Old Church Road from Friday until Augst 25. For full viewing times visit or call 01275 871000.
