Cinema - The Book Thief

6pm on Wednesday our meet up for 'The Book Thief'

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0816442/

And for those of you who can't make Wednesday there is a meet up for this film at 5:30pm on Sunday 2 March too.


In this inspiring tale of courage and strength, 13-year-old Nélisse plays Liesel, a young girl who finds escape from the horrors of World War II by stealing books and sharing them with others.

They include Max (Schnetzer), a Jewish refugee hiding in the home of Hans (Rush) and Rosa (Watson), who foster Liesel after her parents are sent to a concentration camp. Although she is initially illiterate, Liesel’s world is opened up by the power of words and her own imagination, even while discovery and death are only a heartbeat away.

BAFTA- and Emmy-winning director Percival brings Markus Zusak’s much-loved 2006 bestseller to the big screen with the help of a beautiful score by John Williams, perfectly capturing the novel’s themes of resilience, empowerment and triumph over adversity.

How To Meet

Use the comments section to tell others what seat you've booked and meet in the bar before and/or after the film. 

For those of you who don't know the picturehouse and think you can't make 6:00pm, films usually start 20 minutes after the published time.

    This is a lovely film so you're in for a bit of a treat tonight. The back three rows are half empty at the moment so now is a good time to book your seat; post it here as Helen has done to make meeting up easier and Don't Forget To Meet Up In The Bar Afterwards. There's lots to talk about with this film..................

    February 22, 2014

    • John E.

      Hi Catriona. When the schedule is released I'll confirm the meet up details as soon as I can. Typically those going post what seat they've booked so that others can book nearby seats (or not!). I'll also set a meet up for this film on Sunday 9th for those who can't make Wednesday nights. What a popular film this is!!

      February 22, 2014

    • Catriona B.

      Thank you

    Work meeting!

  • John E.

    Hi Gabrielle. That's a good response; and two months ahead of release too. The film is featured in the latest pictirehouse guide and should be great. I'm so gald you're scheduling this and if you need any help, let me know.

    November 28, 2013

    • Gabrielle

      Hi John. I can't change the date. I'm thinking of going the Wednesday after the release date so Feb 5th evening.
      I'm not a APH member but an Orange customer, so can have 1 extra ticket half-price if anyone is interested in.

      PS: and yes, I'm actually sitting down with my trusted Filofax, planning over 2 months in advance when I'm going to the cinema :) now if only i could buy the tickets that much in advance...

      1 · November 28, 2013

    • John E.

      I've changed the date Gabrielle and if you give me a nudge when the schedule is out, I'll put full details in.

      November 28, 2013

  • Annalisa

    I'd be really interested in this one. I haven't read the book yet although I've been meaning to for ages. Wednesdays or anytime at the weekend are best for me.

    November 27, 2013

  • Sharon W.

    Yes - amazing book!

    November 27, 2013

  • Mary M.

    May be interested depending if I can make date and time. Prefer times up to 19:30 pm rather than later.
