In celebration of its second birthday, the Errol Flynn Filmhouse announced the winners of this year’s EFFIE Awards at a special ceremony on Saturday.

The event also marked the 106th anniversary of Errol Flynn’s birth. Audience members enjoyed a glass of fizz and some birthday cake, as the results of the public vote were revealed, before settling down to watch a special pre-release screening of the new Western-thriller, Slow West, starring Michael Fassbender.

The award for the Best of the Biggest Selling Films went to the fascinating Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything, while the Best Classic Film was bagged by the iconic Ridley Scott sci-fi movie Blade Runner: The Final Cut. Scooping Best Documentary was Dior and I, going behind the scenes at the iconic fashion house. Best Live Event was won by Monty Python Live (Mostly), the reunion performance of the cult comedy group.

Best Film not in the English Language went to the animated adventure from Japan, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, from Studio Ghibli. The award for the best film shown in the cinema’s Under The Radar season was won by the uplifting music film Northern Soul. Finally the Audience Choice category of overall Favourite Film, to be picked from any that had been shown during the year, went to The Theory of Everything, starring Eddie Redmayne, giving it its second EFFIE win of the year.

An 88-seat cinema, the Errol Flynn Filmhouse opened adjacent to Royal & Derngate in June 2013, named after one of the Royal Theatre’s most famous alumni.

The cinema screens the very best in world, independent, British and mainstream film, broadening the range of films available in the town centre and providing a first class cinema-going experience.

The cinema launched to rave reviews and quickly developed a loyal following, with its luxurious reclining leather seats and carefully chosen range of snacks and drinks, and has welcomed 45,000 people to its screenings in the last year.

Errol Flynn Filmhouse Chief Executive, Martin Sutherland, said: “It’s great to see the cinema enjoying such popularity. I am really grateful for the dedication and commitment shown by all involved in making the Errol Flynn Filmhouse such a special place.”
