Film: Umbrellas of CherbourgFilm, The Screen Wed 16 Oct, 6.30pm
Jacques Demy, 1964
91 Mins. Cert U.
This season of The Screen at Contemporary we look to the often overlooked, sometimes controversial and frequently subversive world of musicals where love, hate, sex and politics are played out through song, music and dance. Join us for SWAY!
Catherine Deneuve, umbrellas, Paris, heartbreak – all key elements in this magical experiment in music and storytelling. A visually sumptuous Technicolor dream of a film that swings between love letter to classic Hollywood cinema and a French melancholy that knows that true love doesn’t always conquer all.
£5 per ticket, or any five tickets for £20. Tickets are available for purchase online. To book for five films, please call 0115948 9750.
