Time & Location
About The Event
Doors & refreshments open 2pm, event starts 2.30pm
Presented in partnership with Women Over 50 Film Festival (Dir: Michael Curtiz / 1954 (U) 115 mins) All-singing, all-dancing host, Suzy Harvey, will welcome you to a joyful event and special screening of the 1954 classic White Christmas. There will be singing, dancing and other gentle interactive activities which you can join in with or not, plus a goody bag of props for you to interact with the film. We'll break mid-film for a dance and chat, and light-levels will remain high enough to move around and feel relaxed throughout the screening. Tea and biscuits will be served before the screening and the atmosphere throughout will be relaxed and friendly. Careers are especially welcome.
Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO. A city-wide season of cult, classic and world cinema musicals taking place across Brighton November 2019 – January 2020 screen-shot.co.uk Love them or hate them, musicals are undoubtedly having a moment. With a season of films and special events taking place across the country this winter, we thought we would bring you something a little different. From carnivorous musical mermaids to the story of Joan of Arc’s childhood soundtracked by a pounding electronic score, we’ll be presenting some weird and wonderful examples of the genre on the big screen. We’ll be travelling to Afghanistan via France, Poland and the Eastern bloc, taking in everything from holiday classic White Christmas to Pope of Trash John Waters’ cult favourite Cry Baby. So warm up those vocal chords and get ready for a wild ride. Brought to you by Screen Shot, a new film collective working to promote independent film events in Brighton and beyond.
