Bridget Jones Baby (2016)   
cert 12A
Crowcombe Hall, Crowcombe
start at 7:30pm with doors open at 7:00pm.

Bridget's focus on single life and her career is interrupted when she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch ... she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby's father. Broad gags, choice turns and some terrific slapstick involving a hospital revolving door elevate a possibly opportunistic outing into a solid and satisfying comeback

Tickets are £6:00 per show and available in advance from Crowcombe Post Office. You can also reserve seats by emailing crowcombecinema@gmail.com and pay at the door.
