The next Whixley Film club night will be on Friday December 20th at 8:00pm in the Village Hall when will be showing La Vie en Rose. From the slums of Paris to the limelight of New York, Edith Piaf’s life was a battle to sing and survive, live and love. Raised in poverty, Edith’s magical voice and her passionate romances and friendships with the greatest names of the period–Yves Montand, Jean Cocteau, Charles Aznavour, Marlene Dietrich, Marcel Cerdan and others–made her a star all around the world. But in her audacious attempt to tame her tragic destiny, the Little Sparrow–her nickname–flew so high she could not fail to burn her wings.
Members of the film club may find out what we’re showing in the future by CLICKING HERE. If you’re interested in coming along please join the film club (there is a form on the web site HERE), or simply turn up on the night where you can join if you wish or make a donation for the one showing (our licence does not allow us to specify a charge for entry to our film showings).
Don’t forget that on Whixley film club nights there is a full bar in operation as well as other refreshments. We normally have an interval during the film to give you a chance to refresh your drinks, and feel free to bring along cushions, bean bags or whatever additional items you need to sit comfortably.
From November 2019 onwards film nights will be held on the third Friday of each month, but may be varied so keep an eye on the website and email newsletters for up-to-date information. In December 2019 the club will be on December 20th.
