Film Club Fri 20th Jan 2023

Updated: Jan 21, 2023

For what has become his final feature film, director Roger Michell made this sweet-natured and genial comedy in the spirit of Ealing, which bobs up like a ping pong ball on a water- fountain. It is based on the true story of Kempton Bunton, the Newcastle cab driver who in 1965 appeared at the Old Bailey for stealing Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington from London's National Gallery, and stars Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren. The mystery of its disappearance had so electrified the media that there was even a gag about it in the James Bond film Dr No.

7pm for 7:30 start

Entrance fee: £5

Owing to problems concerning the Village Hall calendar, the dates for the next two films are, respectively, 20th January and 17th February. I shall send reminders nearer the time, and hopefully we will be back to the second Friday in the month from March onwards!

Best wishes,
