GO straight to gaol... for a marvellous movie night!

As part of national Explore Your Archives Week, the Denbighshire Archive Service, in partnership with TAPE, will be holding a special screening of 2015 film Suffragette.

This screening will take place at the home of the Denbighshire Archive Service in Ruthin Gaol on Friday, November 23 from 7pm.

The gaol appears in a scene in the film and members of the Denbighshire Archive Service team will be present to discuss the work of the archive.

The screening also marks the opening of the Gaol Cell Cinema, which will play host to a programme of special screenings throughout 2019.

Suffragette is a 2015 British historical period drama film about women's suffrage in the UK.

The film was directed by Sarah Gavron and it was written by Abi Morgan.

Suffragette stars Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw and Meryl Streep in an all star cast.

Filming for the film began back in February 2014.

It is the first feature film to be shot in the Houses of Parliament and Suffragette was released in the UK on October 12, 2015.

The movie begins in 1912, focusing on Maud Watts, a 24-year-old laundry worker.

While delivering a package, she is caught up in a suffragette protest, which includes her workmate Violet Miller.

It covers the Suffragette movement through to the time that women were given the right to vote in 1918.

At the Ruthin Gaol screening, refreshments including popcorn, confectionery, hot and cold drinks will also be available to buy on the evening, thanks to Lisa, from The Candy Shack, in Ruthin.
