On Saturday 1st February, Corrie Film Club hosts its free mini film festival Day in the Dark in Corrie and Sannox Village Hall.
This year, as always, there will be a chance to see a variety of films between 10.30 in the morning and 10.00 at night as well as the chance to socialise over lunch and supper provided by members. Everyone is welcome and please feel free to dip in and out at any time to any film. The programme this time consists of films either made in Scotland or about Scotland including two Bill Forsyth classics.
The programme begins at 10.30am with Scottish shorts and coffee followed at 11.30 by one of the nation’s most affectionately held comedies, Bill Forsyth’s , Gregory’s Girl.This will be followed by a lunch break ( soup, bread and cheese provided) from 1.00 – 2.00.
At 2.00 a rare chance to see a wee Scottish gem in the Robin Hood tradition about two lads from an Edinburgh housing estate who become something of a tourist attraction because of their antics. With stunning scenery and an infectious soundtrack it’s Restless Natives followed at 3.30 by tea and cake.
Then, at 4.00, comes the other Bill Forsyth classic of the day, Local Hero, a delightfully observed comedy with a loving heart and exuberant charm which earned Burt Lancaster an academy award.
After Local Hero we can all enjoy supper together (baked potatoes and fillings as well as other treats) at 6.00.
Finally, at 7.30 , we will settle down to enjoy a more recent Scottish classic, Mary Queen of Scots, with Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, David Tennant, Jack Lowden and many other Scottish actors including a fleeting appearance from Arran’s own Katharine O’Donnelly.
Please feel welcome at any or a few or all these films! Admission free. BYOB
