Cost: £6.00

The one that thought it had won the Oscar. Mia, an aspiring actress, serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and Sebastian, a jazz musician, scrapes by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars. But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair. Starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

Beer and wine by the glass available, also soft drinks. An excellent community social evening starting with a short film, followed by an interval during which glasses are refreshed and choc ices sold, then the main feature begins.

Tickets available about 14 days before performance from Bridge Stores or see contact below.
