12 years a slave

Update - I've closed the RSVPs for this as the cafe in the Quad isn't very big. If you want to come along for the film only, you're very welcome to come along at 4.30pm.

For those who are on the RSVP list, due to the numbers, it's likely we won't be able to sit together and may have to sit at separate tables but we can always play musical chairs.

Lazy Sunday afternoon drink & film. Meet at the Quad for a drink at 3.30pm, film starts at 4.45pm. Feel free just to come along just for a drink & catch up or if you just want to come along for the film, please make sure you're there by 4.30pm.

'In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty at the hands of a malevolent slave owner, as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist will forever alter his life.'

    I wouldn't say I enjoyed the film! I am glad I saw it. As Lisa B said it was a very harrowing film. It was lovely to meet you all :)

    Would have loved to join you all but will be travelling home from Guildford late Sunday afternoon. Enjoy, I suspect this film will be brilliant as well as very thought provoking!

    I am new to this group and would love to see this film, but I might be going walking in Derbyshire. I will have to decide near the end of the week and see if there are any tickets left.

    Are you able to buy a ticket on the day ?

    January 17, 2014

    • Monica

      It depends if they've sold out. I got my ticket the other day. Cost £7.80

    This looks good to me! QUAD gives a £1 discount to Gold Card holders. Unless it's gone up since I last went, the price is a bit under the main Showcase rates.

    January 8, 2014

    • Monica

      I'm not sure how much tickets are. You could try googling the quad. It's up to you if you want to get ticket in advance. See you soon
