One of the actresses of the moment stars in a short film written by Hebden Bridge resident Chris Smith, screened at the Picture House.

Anne Reid, who plays Celia in hit BBC drama ‘Last Tango in Halifax’, can be seen in the eight-minute-long film ‘Tea Time in Haworth’, which was shot locally.

It will be screened before the Steve Coogan/Dame Judi Dench movie ‘Philomena’ from tomorrow (Friday) to Monday at 7.45pm, and also next Thursday at 10.30am.

‘Tea Time in Haworth’ was inspired by seeing a couple of older day trippers filming each other with a handy cam while waiting for their order to be taken at a café – lost in their own world.

Aside from granary rolls and regrets about Rotherham, the film is also about two people in a long relationship who are out of step with the modern world but take comfort in their idiosyncrasies.

‘Philomena’ (12A), is the true tale of an Irish teenager who is forced to give away her toddler by nuns.

Philomena, played by Dame Judi Dench, meets journalist Martin Sixsmith (Coogan) and they set off to find her long-lost son.

The NT Encore showing of ‘Frankenstein’ (15) is on Tuesday (doors 6pm, start 7pm).

‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2’ (U) is on Saturday and Sunday (1.30pm).
