Fans of English born American actor Cary Grant are in for a double treat at the Classic Film Afternoon, hosted by FilmCrew – Crewkerne & District Community Cinema, at Wadham School auditorium on Sunday November 24th, beginning at 1.30 pm. Cary Grant whose real name was Archibald Leach was born in 1904 at Horfield, Bristol. Two of his best films, North by Northwest (1959) in which he stars as a New York advertising executive who goes on the run after being mistaken for a government agent by a group of foreign spies and Bringing Up Baby (1938), starring alongside Katherine Hepburn as a paleontologist pursued by a flighty heiress and her pet leopard, will be screened at the Classic Film Afternoon. Tickets cost £8 per person and are on sale at the LIC in Crewkerne Town Hall. The film afternoon is additional screening to FilmCrew’s monthly evening films – the next one on Friday October 11th, doors open at 7 pm. The October film Shoplifters is the second film of the season and winner of the 2018 Palme D’or at Cannes. The film centres on a non-biological Japanese family that rely on shoplifting to cope with a life of poverty. Although poor they appear to live happily together until an incident reveals hidden secrets that test the bonds that unite them. Visitors can attend an individual film for £6, payable at the door.
