A Community Gets Together To Save Its Local Pub In A New British Film

A community gets together to save its local pub in a new feel-good British film opening in cinemas next Friday, 9 March.

Walk Like A Panther revolves around a group of ‘80s wrestlers who are forced to don the lycra one last time when their beloved local pub is threatened by closure. Led by father-son duo, Mark and Trevor Bolton, this unlikely bunch of underdog heroes sets out to save their community, rekindling old friendships and family ties along the way.

The ensemble British cast also includes Sue Johnston (“Downton Abbey,” “The Royle Family”), Lindsey Coulson (“EastEnders,” “The Level”), Julian Sands (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, “Crooked House”), Jason Flemyng (upcoming Mystery of the Iron Mask: Journey to China, Snatch), Stephen Tompkinson (“Wild at Heart”, “DCI Banks”), Michael Socha (“This is England ‘90,” “Once Upon a Time”) and hip hop artist/poet Scroobius Pip (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, “Taboo”).

Walk Like A Panther is directed by Dan Cadan, making his feature film debut from his own original screenplay and he was particularly keen to work with Pub is The Hub in promoting the film. He said: “Pub is The Hub are committed to the necessity of community life.  Not only bringing people together but keeping them together.

“I have observed the demise of the great British pub, it’s very sad but one good thing has come from it – like minded, caring people are now passing the baton between their communities in an attempt to support their local.

“Pub is The Hub, like the Panthers, have got your back.”

John Longden, Chief Executive of Pub is The Hub added: “We were thrilled to be asked to be involved in the launch of this film, I’m sure that the story will resonate with many of the community pubs in the UK.”
