There has been no Corrie Film Club since March 2020 but the doors will be open again and the cameras rolling on Sunday October 17.

The club starts back with a showing of a feel good and warming film – The Englishman who Climbed a Hill and came down a Mountain starring Hugh Grant and Tara Fitzgerald.

Set in 1917 against the background of the First World War , a cartographer arrives in a Welsh village to measure the height of their “mountain”.

Finding it short of mountain status it is deemed a “hill”. There is love, humour, discord and moving sadness as the villagers, despite divisions, find a common purpose in rectifying the state of affairs.

This film was a 1995 entry to both the Moscow and Cannes Film Festivals.

See it in Corrie and Sannox village hall on Sunday at 8.00pm. Entry free but a small donation requested for the hall.
