Update: Tickets went pretty quickly for this, but Lakeside do hold a waiting list, so if you are interested, but don't have a ticket yet, it may still be worth phoning.
B*stards grinding you down? Come along and watch Albert Finney in the terrific 1960 film adaptation of Alan Sillitoe’s novel Saturday Night and Sunday Morning. Much of the filming took place in Nottingham. The evening also includes an introduction and a showing of 1965 Raleigh-based documentary film The Factory.
Here are the details from the Lakeside Arts website:
Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960) Dir. Karel Reisz, 90 mins + The Factory (1965) Dir. Philip Donnellan, 28:26 mins. Karel Reisz’ classic adaptation of Alan Sillitoe’s novel with an introduction by the writer’s son, David Sillitoe, and Neil Fulwood (Alan Sillitoe Society). It will be preceded by The Factory (1965). Produced by celebrated documentary filmmaker Philip Donnellan, it provides a moving portrayal of a young boy’s first day at the Raleigh cycle factory, the setting for much of Reisz’s location filming.’
The event itself starts at 6.30 and is due to finish at 9.30, so a post-film drink and chat is a possibility.
Tickets are free and available by phoning the Lakeside Arts box office on 0115 8467777. I think this will be popular, so early booking is recommended.
