Where and when to watch the Oscar nominees in Herefordshire

Sunday is the second most important and iconic date of the movie calendar. After - of course - the release of whichever Fast and Furious movie we’re up to at this point.

This year’s crop of aspiring Oscar winners is an interesting group, with the Best Picture shortlist featuring no standout favourite for the statue, and including a number of non-traditional noms defined as much by their quality as a certain, palpable un-Oscaryness.

There’s no white-man-with-terminal-illness-lives-long-enough-to-marry-his-childhood-sweetheart film. There’s no love-letter-to-New-York (or -LA or -Paris). Although there is still space for two World War II period pieces (Dunkirk and The Darkest Hour) and an against-all-odds Spielberg-y biopic documenting one woman’s moral crusade (The Post).

Alongside those, however, is an incredible, low-key drama written, directed by and starring women, a low-budget horror indie by a black director, and a pair of creative offerings from heavyweight auteurs Guillermo Del Toro and the legendary Paul Thomas Anderson.

If you haven’t seen them all yet, here’s when and where they’re showing across Herefordshire and Hay-on-Wye over the next few months;
