Comment on this story on the

April 5: L’Atalante (1934)

Dita Parlo and Jean Dasté portray a newlywed couple struggling to adjust to married life, drifting along the Seine on a barge with an outrageous first mate, played ebulliently
by Michel Simon. Famed for its fantastical dreamlike shots, poetic realism and sheer romance, and with a long legacy of

April 12: Manhattan (1979)

Woody Allen’s declaration of love to his city is seen and heard how he idealises it: in iconic black and white and with a glorious Gershwin soundtrack. His character’s

In support of the Tony Hawks Centre for child healthcare

screening for an introduction and Q & A.

First it was a bet, then an internationally best-selling book,
and now it’s a feature film starring Tony Hawks, Anatol
Durbala, Stephen Frost, Angus Deayton, Morwenna Banks,
Pat Cash and Alistair McGowan. Tony travels to Moldova to
challenge each player in its football team to a tennis match.
As he witnesses daily living in Europe’s poorest nation, he
sets himself new goals to make a difference. A life affirming,
warm and moving film that shows us in love stories you don’t
always fall in love with another person - sometimes, it’s a
