Quartet ~ staring Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins, Sheridan Smith
Lifelong friends Wilf and Reggie, together with former colleague Cissy, are residents of Beecham House, a home for retired opera singers. Every year on Giuseppe Verdi's birthday, the residents unite to give a concert to raise funds for their home. But when Jean Horton, a former grande dame of the opera fallen on hard times, also Reggie's ex-wife, moves into the home to everyone's surprise, the plans for this year's concert start to unravel.
As old grudges threaten to undermine past glories and theatrical temperaments play havoc with the rehearsal schedule, it becomes apparent that having four of the finest singers in English operatic history under one roof offers no guarantee that the show will go on.
We will meet at 2:45 pm. The movie starts at 3:15 pm. Don't forget to purchase your ticket when you arrive. We will wait in the outer lobby for about 10 minutes and then go in as a group. If you are late, just find a seat and meet us outside the theater after the movie.
After the movie we will gather at a nearby restaurant for some conversation and a bite to eat.
A $2.00 annual contribution will be collected at the first movie you attend in 2013 to help with the cost of maintaining the web site for this year.
See you at the movies!
