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.
“Pure cinematic magic” ★★★★★ Empire
Guy, an auto mechanic, has fallen in love with Geneviève, an employee in her widowed mother’s chic but financially embattled umbrella shop. On the evening before Guy is to leave for a tour of combat in Algeria, the two share a passionate night, resulting in Geneviève’s pregnancy. She must choose between waiting for Guy’s return or accepting an offer of marriage from a wealthy diamond merchant.
