Dustin Hoffman in Lenny directed by Bob Fosse, 1974

The programme begins at 10.00 am with Scottish shorts and coffee followed at 10.45 am by A Matter of Life and Death (U), the 1946 classic starring David Niven and directed by Michael Powell and which is currently enjoying a welcome revival . This will be followed by a lunch break (soup, bread and cheese provided) from 12.30 – 1.00 pm.

Recently, at Day in the Dark we have chosen two films from an outstanding actor’s repertoire. This year it is Dustin Hoffman and the first of the chosen films will be the Oscar winning and extraordinary Lenny (15) which will start at 1.00 pm.

At 2.50 pm it is time for comedy with The Odd Couple (U) with the incomparable Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau followed at 4.30 pm by tea and cake.

Then, at 4.45 pm comes the film that cemented Dustin Hoffman’s career, the celebrated and groundbreaking, The Graduate (15), the film that changed the face of modern film and has defined a whole generation.

After The Graduate we can all enjoy supper together (baked potatoes and fillings as well as other treats) at 6.30 pm.

Finally, at 7.30 pm, we will settle down to enjoy a classic David Lean movie ( you might remember that we have already shown his other epics Doctor Zhivago and Lawrence of Arabia). This year – the Irish tale of passion and treason – Ryan’s Daughter (15)

Please feel welcome at any or a few or all these films! Admission free. BYOB and if you want to, a small contribution to supper (but this is not compulsory!!!).
