– WITH CHRISTINE APPLETON OF THE JOSEPH ROWNTREE L.G.B.T PLUS NETWORK
Step back to 1950’s New York with us and get swept away with this critically acclaimed, beautifully shot love story.
‘Carol’ is an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s seminal novel, ‘The Price of Salt’ and follows two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair at a time when convention makes things a challenge for them.
We are excited to welcome back Christine Appleton from the Joseph Rowntree L.G.B.T. plus network after she introduced us to their work at our showing of ‘The Danish Girl’ last summer. Christine will be updating us on her work since we last saw her, introducing the film and her network have kindly offered to help us with funding the event.
As a community organisation we want everyone to feel welcome and accepted when they walk through our doors. By inviting various groups and speakers to join us for our events and chatting to our audience, we hope to add an extra level to our events that leaves people talking about more than just the movie! We are also lucky enough to have the beautiful setting of the Folk Hall, a licensed bar and ice cream at the the interval!
We are also taking votes for our Halloween film this year. Pick between four amazing films spanning four amazing decades! ‘Psycho’, ‘Jaws’, ‘Ghostbusters’ or ‘Get Out!’. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your selection to be in with a chance to win 1 of 5 pairs of tickets to the event on Friday 27th October 2017!
Following this event we will have ‘Life, Animated’ in July. We hope to see you at an event soon!
