ACADEMY Award winning movie Room will be shown at Glusburn Institute on Friday, March 3.

The 7pm screening at the community and arts centre will introduce audiences to an extraordinary story of a spirited five-year-old.

Jack is looked after by his loving and devoted mother.

Like any good mother Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories.

Their life, however, is anything but typical, because they are trapped.

The pair are confined to a 10-by-10-foot space that Ma has euphemistically named Room.

She has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life.

But as Jack’s curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma’s resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.

The bar opens at 7pm and the film starts at 7.30pm.
