Hebden Bridge Picture House takes you on an enthralling adventure of love with romantic comedy ‘Austenland’ (12A, Sunday to Tuesday), write Megan Bourne and Toby West.

Jane Hayes, a seemingly normal single woman in her 30s, is hiding her secret obsession with Mr Darcy (played by Colin Firth in the adaption of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ by the BBC) which is slowly ruining her love life.

However, when she spends all of her life savings on a trip to England and stays in a resort alongside other Austen-crazed women, Jane’s dreams of meeting the perfect gentleman become a lot more real than she could ever have expected.

Other films at the Picture House this week include ‘Blue Jasmine’ (12A), ‘42’ (12A), ‘Turbo’ (U) and ‘Mister John’ (15). The former follows the life of a New York socialite as she deals with the breakdown of her marriage and decides to start a new life in San Francisco, whereas ‘42’ tells the true story of two men whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed baseball and the world. ‘Turbo’ is one for the kids - an animated comedy from the makers of ‘Kung Fu Panda’ - to be shown from Friday, October 25 to Sunday, November 3. Screening for one night only (Wednesday, October 30), ‘Mister John’ shows the journey of Gerry (Aidan Gillen), who travels to Singapore following his brother’s sudden death.
