Corrie Film Club’s December meeting will be a Christmas special with two films on offer as well as a festive dinner.

Taking place on Sunday December 5, the evening will begin at 7pm with the traditional, annual showing of the 20-minute short, Dinner for One, starring Freddie Frinton as the hilarious butler.

This will be followed by supper at 7.30pm and then a showing at 8pm of Cinema Paradiso, the wonderful elegiac film about childhood, cinema and Sicily, directed by Giuseppe Tornatore.

In this film Salvatore, a successful film director, returns to his native Sicilian village for the funeral of his old friend, Alfredo, who was the projectionist at the local cinema (Cinema Paradiso) where Salvatore spent the happiest times of his childhood and developed his love of films.

To the fatherless young boy Alfredo becomes a father figure who guides and loves him.

Salvatore’s return to the village also brings back poignant memories of his teenage love, Elena, whom he had to leave in order to pursue his dreams.

See these classic films and enjoy good company and supper at Corrie and Sannox Village Hall on Sunday December 5, at 7pm.

All are welcome and entry is free but a small donation to the village hall would be gratefully accepted from non–members.
