paul winfield - RItz Cinema Belper

Don't miss Paul's competition at the foot of this column, to win a pair of tickets to the Ritz Cinema.

Hello and welcome!

In recent years the Eurovision song contest has become a bit of a farce, mainly a showcase for Terry Wogan's scriptwriter, but remember it also gave us ABBA and finally the movie version of the hit stage show Mamma Mia has reached the screens.

A romantic comedy based around Abba's hit songs. It's had great reviews and Meryl Streep who plays single mum Donna is amazing. Of course, August is a holiday month and we've plenty of good films for youngsters with Prince Caspian, the second part of the Chronicles of Narnia saga and Kung Fu Panda, well that says it all!

Now something different, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, set in pre-war London. Guinevere Pettigrew is a humble governess who is thrust into high society and finds love and makes an enemy.

Looking on into September and a big film for us will be The Duchess - quite a lot of it was filmed in our area last summer and it stars Keira Knightley as Georgina, Duchess of Devonshire, a celebrity beauty of the 18th Century trapped in a loveless marriage whose daring behaviour and outspoken views ensure she will be remembered for more than her good looks.

Ten years on from the first big screen outing, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) return in X-Files: I want to Believe. The first film received a mixed reception but fans will be queuing for this one. Also in September, Dark Knight - the lates Batman movie with The Joker being played by the late Heath Ledger, and one I'm looking forward to; Wall-E, from the great Pixar company - I've seen bit sof it and it looks really funny.

So that's all for now but here's this month's question......


Abba won the Eurovision Song Contest with Waterloo, but in what year?

What you've been saying about All Things Local...

“ Hi, I don't normally write to magazine editors, but I thought you deserved to know that your magazine (Ripley Edition) is really, really good. Any other free paper / mag goes straight into the bin (then taken out and put into the recycling by my wife). Your mag has something about it that makes me read it cover to cover and then keep it handy until the next edition. Keep up the great work - you deserve to succeed. Cheers“

Steve, Ripley
