The Book Thief - free cinema adventure

I have secured free tickets for previews of The Book Thief. Based on the beloved international bestselling book, The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel, an extraordinary and courageous young girl sent to live with a foster family in World War II Germany. She learns to read with encouragement from her new family and Max, a Jewish refugee who they are hiding under the stairs. For Liesel and Max, the power of words and imagination become the only escape from the tumultuous events happening around them. The Book Thief is a life-affirming story of survival and of the resilience of the human spirit.

Fee: The tickets are free, but the usual admin fee of £3.5 to cover the costs and expenses of running the group applies. 

Meeting time: I will meet you at the cinema at 6pm, by the ticket offices. My number is  [masked] in case you need to contact me. Please note however that the reception in the cinema is patchy so I may not be reachable. 

I will wait until 6:15 for any late comers and at 6:15 on the dot we will go in as the places are on first come first served basis and we don't want to miss out on the good seats. There are no commercials, the film starts at 6:30 sharp. 


Director: Brian Percival

Writers: Markus Zusak (novel), Michael Petroni(adaptation)

Stars: Sophie NélisseGeoffrey RushEmily Watson

    I'm no longer able to attend the event; meaning that there's a free spot for someone else who is interested. Apologies but my work needs me to be in Hounslow for the day and I simply can't make it from Hounslow to Croydon in time for the show :(
