THE Marine Theatre’s first ‘Tuesday Night at the Movies’ series will come to an end on June 18 with a screening of award-winning film ‘The Piano’ (1993).
Set in New Zealand in the mid-19th century, the film is directed by Jane Campion and stars Holly Hunter, Harvey Keitel and Sam Neill.
Its story focuses on Ada, a mute Scottish woman and her daughter who arrive in the country, with piano in tow, for an arranged marriage to a wealthy landowner. The husband’s selling of her piano to a friend backfires and sets the scene for a passionate relationship that develops between Ada and the new owner.
As US film critic Roger Ebert has said: “It is one of those rare movies that is not just about a story, or some characters, but about a whole universe of feeling.”
The bar will open at 6.30pm on Tuesday, June 18 for the film screening (certificate 15) at 7.30pm. Tickets are £6 in advance or £7.50 on the door – to book, call 01297 442138 or visit www.marinetheatre.com.
The second series of ‘Tuesday Night at the Movies’ – showing a selection of classic films – will run from early July to the end of August and will feature notable titles such as ‘Cabaret’, ‘Vertigo’ and ‘Tom Jones’.
