The autumn season of Max West Movies started on Friday September 13th at 7:00 p.m. with a screening of that musical/western classic of 1953 “Calamity Jane”, starring Doris Day as Calamity and Howard Keel as Wild Bill Hickok. Sing along to the Oscar-winning “Secret Love” and relive Doris Day’s performance described at the time as “busy as a fizzy sarsaparilla”.
Friday October 11th at 7:00 p.m. “The Hundred Foot Journey” 2014. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family led by Papa [Om Puri] settle in the quaint French village of St Antonin Noble Val. They open an Indian restaurant, the “Maison Mumbai”, which happens to be less than a hundred feet from Madame Mallory’s [Helen Mirren] Michelin-starred classical French restaurant “Le Saule Pleureur”. The story weaves magic between two very different cultures and imbues St Antonin with flavours of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore.
Friday November 15th at 7:00 p.m. “Fishermen’s Friends” 2019. No, not the lozenges for sore throats and coughs, but an uplifting film that tells the true story of how an a cappella sea shanty singing group of men hit the big time after starting singing in pubs during the mid 1990’s in Port Isaac. Starring Daniel Mays, David Hayman, James Purefoy and Tuppence Middleton.
Friday December 13th at 7:00 p.m. “Nativity 1” 2009, starring Martin Freeman and Ashley “Annan” Jensen. “A Hollywood company are coming to see our Nativity and we’re all going to be famous!”
Again our thanks go to M M without whom none of this would be possible. There is no fixed price for entry to these films, but we encourage donations to offset the cost of our Public Performance Licence. We look forward to seeing you on September 13th. “Whip crackaway!!” D J
