just checking some reviews for you about our next film THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD.
“This … is a Copperfield for the 21st Century: energetic, sprightly, and all-embracing. …
Forget every Charles Dickens screen adaptation you’ve ever seen — Armando Ianucci’s take on David Copperfield is the funniest, freshest, most fulfilling cinematic foray into Victorian England since, maybe, ever.”
That’s what Bill Newcott says in his review about the film in The Saturday Evening Post – read the full article here.
Less Covid-restrictions now at Alte Gerberei, but please be aware that the 3G rules still apply; we would also appreciate if you reservedyour seat in advance, in order to be quicker at the entrance.
** THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD ** ** Thursday 22nd July ** 8 pm ** ALTE GERBEREI **
Just another week to go, and ELFs‘ next movie will be on the big screen at Alte Gerberei. Before lights go out, enjoy the sun in the garden – have a drink or two (YES the bar is open again!!) and listen to Platform 2.
Sounds like a nice Thursday night, doesn’t it?
** ROSIE ** Thursday 24th June ** 8 pm** ALTE GERBEREI **
Peter Bradshaw writes about ROSIE in The Guardian: „The potency of the film lies in showing us that the “homeless” are not a caste or tribe whose condition has been ordained at birth, and their situation is not a cosmic punishment for laziness – they are people like everyone else whose situation has been created by economic forces.“
Not easy, but we put together a temporary system last Thursday for the first Monoplexx film after lockdown 😊.
If you want to see how far the building work has come on (and what system we have put together) this Thursday at ELFs movie night – we have a great film with Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen ready for you!
