HOYLAKE Community Cinema is starting 2013 with a screening of Ken Loach’ s cult classic Kes on Friday (January 25).
Adapted from the Barry Hines novel A Kestrel for a Knave, the 1969 film is set in Yorkshire.
Bullied teenager Billy has low self-esteem and fears he will end up working in the mines like his father and brother.
His life improves when he finds a baby kestrel. He spends all his spare time nurturing and training the bird – but tragedy is around the corner.
The film will be followed by a Q&A session with actor David Bradley, who played Billy.
A spokesman for Hoylake Community Cinema said: “This gritty and powerful drama succeeds in mixing humour with heartbreak and audiences won’t fail to be moved as they follow Billy on his journey.”
Doors open at 6.30pm and the film starts at 7.30pm.
l Tickets cost £5 and are available from Urbane in Market Street, Staacks onBanks Road, West

Hoylake Community Centre has full disabled access and is induction loop enabled for the hard of hearing.
A licensed bar and homemade snacks will be available.
