FILM TONIGHT 9/12/2016 - FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS

There are still tickets available for tonight's film "Florence Foster Jenkins".  Ticket will be available to buy on door @ £5.00 each.  Doors open 7pm.

 

    This real-life story is a perfect comedy drama leading us into Christmas. Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant harmonise perfectly the humour and pathos. In 1930's and 1940's New York, Florence Foster Jenkins is a wealthy amateur operatic soprano. Surprisingly, in spite of her poor singing ability, her concerts are always sold out. We just have to laugh at Florence's mesmerising joy.       Florence, an heiress from New York always wanted to be a concert pianist and play Carnegie Hall. An injury in her youth deterred that dream. So she set out to sing her way to Carnegie Hall knowing the only way to get there would be "Practice Practice Practice". Her husband supported her venture and the true story of Florence Foster Jenkins playing Carnegie Hall became a truly historic event.
