If the football is proving to be too exciting and you feel the need to relax and cool down, then the air-conditioned David Lean has some escapist films for you to enjoy this week.
Jeune Femme (our second Croydon Comedy Festival screening) sees 31 year-old Paula (played with panache by Laetitia Dosch) looking for a new life in Paris after a break-up with her long-term boyfriend Joachim. She is left homeless, broke and alone. After taking Joachim’s cat, she sets off to ‘pick up the pieces’ encountering along the way a series of adventures in the ‘City of Light’ which lead to new friendships, family reconciliations – and independence. Jeune Femme is funny, compassionate, defensive and resolute in turns and the result is an entertaining and often hilarious film. A debut from female French director Leonor Serraille, it can be seen on Tuesday 3 July at 19:30.
Very few seats remain for the 19:30 performance of the popular Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society on Wednesday 4 July.
We’re pleased to present On Chesil Beach on Thursday 5 July. A few seats are available for the 14:30 showing which is subtitled for those with hearing loss. The evening screening is almost sold out, but you can catch it again on Wednesday 18 July at 19:30.
