Gone To Earth (PG)

Fri, 21st Jul 2017 to Thu, 27th Jul 2017 Old Market Hall

This brooding romantic drama was filmed on location in Shropshire in 1950 and featured many extras drawn from the local area. Adapted from the 1917 novel of the same name by Shropshire's celebrated author Mary Webb, the film is still fondly remembered locally as a moment when Hollywood came to Shropshire and brightened the post-war gloom.

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.
