ROSIE THE RIVETER (USA, 1944, 75 min, colour, PG) Rated - PG - Parental Guidance. Starbox Rating: 3.5 out of 5 (from 36 votes). I want a rivet gun like Rosie's! It was PG because of all the shmoodling!

TIMBUKTU (Mauritanian/French, 2014, 100 min, colour, PG) Rated - PG - Parental Guidance recommended. Starbox Rating: 3.3 out of 5 (from 29 votes). A smaller audience and a film which generated lots of discussion. No animals were hurt in the making of Timbuktu.

MYSTERY TRAIN (USA, 1989, 113 min, colour, M) Starbox Rating: 3.2 out of 5 (from 40 votes). An eventful night in a Memphis hotel, for our largest crowd for the year, where we saw 'the blues' playout. Can you pick up a cigarette lighter with your toes?

FORD v FERRARI (USA, 2019, 152 min, colour, M) Starbox Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars (from 24 votes). Although illness prevented many members from making the trip those that made it to the starting grid were obviously winners by the chequered flag. A cracker of a movie!

YESTERDAY (UK, 2019, 117 min, colour, MA 15+) Starbox rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars (from 33 votes). Another hit - Beatles music and a love story how could you go wrong. Even a mask couldn't muffle our sing-a-long... and thanks for the Beatles' scrapbooks Ross - what a treat!
