Event Details

On July 1st we will be screening the final film of our 2021 – 2022 programme.
This is the 1985 UK comedy drama “My Beautiful Laundrette” directed by Stephen Frears.
In 1hr 38 minutes it tells the story of Omar (Gordon Warnecke) and Johnny (Daniel Day-Lewis) who, in a seedy part of London, are trying to run the family laundrette business formerly owned by Omar’s uncle.  The story is not so much about the the fate of the laundry or the two men, but about the society in which the characters live.
 “This culture-clash comedy is also a subversive work of social realism that dares to address racism, homophobia, and socio political marginalization in Margaret Thatcher’s England”.  The Criterion collection.
The film is suitable for over 15 year olds.
We are delighted to be able to serve the traditional Pimm’s and strawberry scones as refreshments prior to the start of the final film of the GFS year.
Bookings are appreciated to enable us to cater for the refreshments.
Please arrive between 7pm and 7.30 and we will use the garden for refreshments if the weather permits.
 
There will be no film in August and we begin again in September with our new programme for 2022 – 2023. The programme is not quite ready yet and  will be emailed to you as soon as it is.  Please note that the September film will be on the second Friday in September which is 9th. This is because the hall will be closed for maintenance until Monday 5th September.
 
We look forward to seeing you on Friday 1st July for “My Beautiful Laundrette”.
