Every Wednesday afternoon we welcome our older audiences to a screening of a classic film. With free tea and coffee (and a biscuit of course!) we encourage over 60s to stay for for a chat and to meet old friends and new.
Set in a lovingly evoked Budapest in the run-up to Christmas, Ernst Lubitsch’s deliciously delicate comedy focuses on the various obstacles blocking the path of potential lovers, played by James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, fellow workers in a gossip-ridden emporium who are unaware they’re in fact courting one another by mail in an anonymous correspondence.
"A sharp, elegant, unsentimental picture starring James Stewart"- Guardian ★★★★
The director’s fabled ‘touch’, here at its lightest, contributes to what is arguably Hollywood’s most exquisitely romantic depiction of the old central Europe. Perfect seasonal fare.
