Far From the Madding Crowd (12A) at the Old Market Hall


In Victorian England, the independent and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene attracts three very different suitors: A sheep farmer; a reckless Sergeant; and a prosperous bachelor. Exploring the nature of relationships and love, this adaptation of Thomas Hardy's work, champions the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.

Built in 1596, Shrewsbury's iconic Old Market Hall was lovingly restored and re-opened as a contemporary cinema and cafe bar in 2004. The intimate 81-seat cinema screens a diverse programme of independent film, classics, world cinema, documentaries, and popular releases. The accompanying Cafe Bar is hugely popular as a place to meet friends and relax in historic surroundings, serving an array of teas, coffees, cold drinks, cake and alcoholic beverages.
