Frothy fun

Benalla Ensign - - Communityvoice -

Screen­ing this week­end is a film full of bub­bly, frothy fun filmed in a French Chateau, C’est La Vie! (M).

This charm­ing French com­edy is about a dis­grun­tled caterer work­ing his last wed­ding event.

Max is just try­ing to get through the night, but has to deal with a cast of off­beat char­ac­ters and a girl friend who is flirt­ing with a young server.

C’est La Vie! will screen as a Sun­day af­ter­noon mati­nee on De­cem­ber 18 at 1.30 pm. Tick­ets are $10 and in­clude a cuppa and bis­cuit fol­low­ing the show, which starts at 1.30 pm.

The sec­ond film screen­ing in the dou­ble bill on Satur­day and Sun­day evenings is a quirky com­edy from New Zealand, The Breaker Up­per­ers (M).

Fif­teen years ago, Mel and Jen dis­cov­ered that they were be­ing two-timed by the same man.

Bit­ter and cyn­i­cal, they be­came friends and formed a small busi­ness called ‘‘The Breaker Up­per­ers’’: break­ing up cou­ples for cash.

Now in their late ’30s and with a boom­ing busi­ness, Mel de­vel­ops a con­science when they run into an old vic­tim.

This is a fun romp de­scribed as be­ing ‘‘made by women for women’’ in­clud­ing the ‘‘uc­cents ‘n’ ull’’!

One out­stand­ing and highly ac­claimed film will screen on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 22, at 7 pm and on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 23, at 6 pm.

The Wild Pear Tree (M) comes from Tur­key and is the only film screen­ing be­cause of its length.

There will not be an in­ter­val, so com­pli­men­tary fruit and dips will be served be­fore and af­ter the film.

An am­bi­tious, dis­con­tented young grad­u­ate and would-be writer re­turns to his vil­lage with his diploma, but no job.

Now he has to de­cide if he should take ex­ams to be a teacher like his fa­ther.

He also has mil­i­tary ser­vice to get out of the way.

Re­turn­ing home is not what he ex­pected.

It ap­peared won­der­ful in his imag­i­na­tion when he lived in the city, but ac­tu­ally be­ing back re­minds him of all its ir­ri­ta­tions com­pared to the ex­cite­ment of city life.

If you are look­ing for at­trac­tions dur­ing the fes­tive hol­i­days then why not come to Swan­pool Com­mu­nity Cin­ema with fam­ily and friends for the Thurs­day mati­nee on De­cem­ber 27 at 1.30 pm of Christo­pher Robin (G). Tick­ets are $10 and in­clude af­ter­noon tea fol­low­ing the film.

On the evenings of Fri­day, De­cem­ber 28, and Satur­day, De­cem­ber 29, there will be a dou­ble bill of Christo­pher Robin (G) and In­cred­i­bles 2 (PG). Tick­ets at nor­mal prices.

Why not spend the evening with the friendly crowd at Swan­pool Com­mu­nity Cin­ema?

As usual two clas­sic films will be screen­ing then a de­li­cious sup­per will be served as mid­night ap­proaches.

The count­down and fire­works will be run­ning on the cin­ema screen as the corks pop and 2019 is wel­comed in.

Screen­ing first will be Al­fred Hitch­cock’s 1954 thriller, Rear Win­dow (PG) star­ring Grace Kelly, James Ste­wart and Ray­mond Burr.

The sec­ond film is from 1981, Char­i­ots Of Fire (PG), which is based on the true story of two English Olympic Games run­ners in 1924.

On New Year’s Eve the films start at 7 pm on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 31, with an all in­clu­sive ticket cost of $25 per head, which in­cludes the fes­tive sup­per and bub­bles (no con­ces­sions).

The candy bar al­ways opens half an hour be­fore screen­ing, and the cin­ema vol­un­teers have stocked the freez­ers with the fa­mous home-made Swan­pool choc-tops us­ing the de­li­cious flavours of Haa­gen Das ice-cream.
