Christmas Corrie Film Club

On Sunday December 8th the Corrie film club will have a Christmas programme that begins at 7.00 pm with a showing of Dinner for One, followed by supper and then It’s a Wonderful Life.

Dinner for One (Director Heinz Dunkhause, 1963. Germany. 18 mins Cert U)

Traditional Christmas short comedy, served with mulled wine.
An older Lady is having a birthday again and has invited four guests: Sir Toby, Lord Pommeroy, Admiral von Schneider and Mr. Winterbotton. The only problem is that the four have passed away long ago, and so the butler has to step in and help drinking all the sherry, wine and champagne served with the birthday dinner. He does a very good job on this and it seems that he also did a very good job for all the four guests after the dinner (upstairs).

It’s A Wonderful Life (Director Frank Capra, 1946. 135 mins Cert U)

An unforeseen event brings Bedford Falls, Building and Loan owner, George Bailey, the much-loved and respected town and family man, to the edge of suicide. Through Clarence, his guardian angel, he is granted a chance to see what life would have been like had he never existed, to see how his absence would affect so many lives in more ways than he could ever have imagined. The ultimate feel-good film, a feeling boosted by seeing it on the big screen and in good company. Frank Capra directs James Stewart in one of his best loved roles.
