February 12th Film club membership night
Curry & a film
As Valentines day approaches, I didn't think we could let the opportunity to screen a romantic tale pass us by.
We will start with some papadums, of course, followed by the Wild Boar Chef cooking us up a curry. He will make us a feast of chicken and veg curry with rice and naan bread, while we watch some classic Bollywood movie trailers and music video to get us in the swing of things.
For Film Club members the film is free (if your not a member why not come and give it a try, if you then wish to join membership is only £15 for the year).
The food cost is only £6 per head.
We will open the beer hall at 7.00pm, eat at 7.30pm and then screen the feature film at 8.00pm. The food is of course optional, if you do not wish to eat please do not be put off attending, what will be a great social evening.
Knowing how many to cater for is very important so if possible please reply back to this email or call us on 01926 499968 to confirm your interest. Also if you have any special dietary requirements please let us know. We will need at least 15 people eating to cover the kitchen costs, so please do let us know.
End of month screening: Date 25th February 2015
Withnail & I
Doors 7.00pm start time 7.30pm
Tickets £5 (£4 for pub film club members)
London: The Sixties. Two down-on-their-luck actors (Withnail and Marwood) find solace in drink and other substances. Seeking respite from their uneventful lives they escape up north to Penrith to Withnail's uncle's stone cottage. Faced with no modern conveniences, a bunch of oddball locals, and a surprise visit from an amorous "Uncle Monty", their wits are tested, along with their friendship.
A biting script from writer-director Bruce Robinson and performances from Richard E Grant and Paul McGann as two 'resting' actors.
The soundtrack is lovely and full marks to George Harrison and HandMade Films for backing such an unlikely project.
Withnail and I was regarded for many years as a cult film but stands now as one of the finest British films of the Eighties. And what's not to like about a film with the line: "Don't threaten me with a dead fish"?
We need your support!
Please spread the word about pub film club to like minded people. We would love to have more people attending screenings and more members. I think the bigger the audience the better the atmosphere and more diverse and interesting the screening will become.
