Join me at the beautiful Grove pub in Balham (between Balham & Clapham South tube stations) for an evening of FREE cinema and FREE popcorn.
Located in their main restaurant area, they convert the whole place into a cinema screening area with a big screen.
Lets Meet at 7pm for drinks/A quick bite to eat for the hungry ones & a bit of socialising before the free movie with popcorn at 8pm - Captain Philips
The Film:Captain Philips
134min - Adventure, Biography, Drama (October 2013)
Directed by Paul Greengrass. Starring:Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Barkhad Abdirahman...
Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the
U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is - through
director Paul Greengrass's distinctive lens - simultaneously a pulse-pounding
thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The
film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama's commanding officer,
Captain Richard Phillips (two time Academy Award®-winner Tom Hanks), and the
Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. Phillips and
Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target
Phillips' unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast,
both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.
Pleae note: Only RSVP for this event if you can make it!!! I fully understand that with all the right intentions, your plans may still change, however I do expect you to be fair and considerate to others by making sure you keep your RSVP up to date! Doing so will give other members a real chance of joining us, if there are spaces available. However, changing your RSVP at the last minute or simply failing to actually turn up, (No Shows) obviously does not count as being considerate or fair and is frustrating for other members and myself included!
Food and drinks available all evening; NOT FREE of course!
