Did you know that Portsmouth Festivities is 20 this year? We have been collaborating with them for a few years now and this year is no exception. We will be showing three films that are also an astonishing 20 years old; Almodovar’s masterpiece All About My Mother will be screening on Thursday 20th June at 7.00pm, cult classic Fight Club screening on Friday 21st June at 7.00pm and something for all the family, the animated film The Iron Giant on Saturday 22nd June at 7.00pm.
The title of ’National Treasure’ should instantly be bestowed on Chris Sievey who created the extraordinary, quirky and the ‘could only be British' character of Frank Sidebottom. Thursday’s film Being Frank makes having a large paper-mache head seem extremely cool. (Although rather hot inside I imagine!)
The White Crow on Friday night is a must for fans of ballet. Featuring Oleg Ivenko as Nureyev it also stars the bad boy of ballet Sergei Polunin, strutting their stuff in some beautiful moments of dance. Politics, Paris, plies and a glass of plonk from the bar, what’s not to enjoy?
Inspired by the true story of an all-male folk band from the picturesque Cornish town of Port Isaac, Fisherman’s Friends on Saturday night will have you booking your stay-cation train ticket to Cornwall this summer.
