Our Film Nights return tomorrow [Tuesday] with the Swedish classic, Summer With Monika [1953]. The film, directed by Ingmar Bergman, sparked controversy abroad for its frank description of nudity. Along with 'One Summer Of Happiness' the year before it helped to create the reputation of Sweden as a sexually liberated place.
The film made a star of the leading actress, Harriet Andersson. Bergman had been intimately involved with Anderson at the time and conceived the film as a vehicle for her. The two of them would continue to work together, even after their romantic relationship had ended.

Date: Tues 8th Sept
Time: 7.30pm

For our next Film Club show, we will be showing by popular request The Magnet 1950 as part of a British Seaside season of films

The Magnet is a 1950 Ealing Studios comedy film, and gave James Fox his first starring role. The story revolves around a young Wallasey boy, Johnny Brent (Fox), whose deceptive obtaining of a magnet leads to confusion and ultimately him being hailed as a hero, but feeling guilt at his slyness.

The Magnet was filmed on location in and around New Brighton, Wirral, Cheshire and Liverpool, and at Ealing Studios, London, in black and white.

Please note that we will be showing a recent digitally restored version of the film. If you haven't seen this film before then you are in for a treat seeing Merseyside in 1950. If you know the film then it is worth seeing again for the newly restored version which has much better print quality than previous versions on DVD, VHS video and TV.

Our next Film Night is tomorrow evening. We'll be showing 'The Entertainer'. Filmed on location in Morecambe, this 1960 drama was directed by Tony Richardson, based on the stage play of the same name by John Osborne.
It stars Laurence Olivier as a failing third-rate music-hall stage performer who tries to keep his career going even as the music -hall tradition fades into History and his personal life falls apart. The theme is considered to be an allegory for the decay of Great Britain in the 1950's.
Olivier, reprising his mesmerising stage performance in the same role, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role.

National Libraries Day:

This 1962 comedy has been chosen for National Libraries Day because it's set in a library! Based on the novel 'That Uncertain Feeling' by Kingsley Amis, the film is directed by Sidney Gilliat from Bryan Forbes' screenplay.
Peter Sellers stars as a bored, hen-pecked library worker. When he seeks promotion, Liz, wife of a local councillor [Mai Zetterling] sets her sights on him. But this is risky stuff in a Welsh valleys town - if they manage to consummate their affair, that is!

Saturday 6th February
2.30pm
FREE!


There will also be a coffee morning 10-12 to raise money for the library. We'll have lots of homemade cakes to buy. Come along and meet some of the Friends. There'll be lots of books for Sale too.[i][/i]

Tomorrow night's Film Night:

L'Année dernière à Marienbad (released in the US as Last Year at Marienbad and in the UK as Last Year in Marienbad) is a 1961 French film directed by Alain Resnais from a screenplay by Alain Robbe-Grillet.

Last Year at Marienbad is famous for its enigmatic narrative structure, in which truth and fiction are difficult to distinguish, and the temporal and spatial relationship of the events is open to question. The film's dreamlike nature has both fascinated and baffled viewers; many have hailed the work as a masterpiece, while others consider it incomprehensible.

I've always been fascinated by films concerning temporal and spatial relationships, it sounds like real edge of the seat stuff.

The next film in our London series is the excellent and little known Small World Of Sammy Lee - a 1963 British crime film directed by Ken Hughes and starring Anthony Newley, Julia Foster and Robert Stephens. A peep-show compere is hunted across the seedy underworld of London by debt collectors. A relentlessly paced film with some great acting shot on location in Soho and Whitechapel.

Tuesday 23rd February. Doors open at 5.45pm - film starts 6.00pm.

We will be showing a Saturday matinee this weekend. It's part of our short Matinee Season. If it's popular, we may look to extend the number of films we show on a Saturday.

'I'm All Right Jack' [1959] British comedy film directed and produced by John and Roy Boulting. The film is a sequel to the Boultings' 1956 film Private's Progress and Ian Carmichael, Dennis Price, Richard Attenborough, Terry-Thomas and Miles Malleson reprise their characters. Peter Sellers played one of his best-known roles, as the trades union shop steward Fred Kite and won a Bafta Best Actor Award.
The film is a satire on British industrial life in the 1950s. The trade unions, workers and bosses are all seen to be incompetent or corrupt to varying degrees. The film is one of a number of satires made by the Boulting Brothers between 1956 and 1963.'
