British Film Festival: Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

Palace Cinema Como, Como Centre, Level 1, Cnr Toorak Rd & Chapel St, South Yarra

Join us for the British Film Festival featuring some of Hollywood's favourites in 'Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool'.

We will meet at 6.00 with plenty of time to organise treats for the movie, which starts at 6.30 pm.

Afterwards we will have a bite to eat and/or coffee/hot chocolate/cake at Chapelli's.

In 1981, decades after she rose to fame in Hollywood, the Academy Award-winning star, Gloria Grahame (Annette Bening), is treading the boards in a modest theatre production when she collapses in a hotel. Her health failing, she reaches out to former lover, Liverpudlian actor Peter Turner (Jamie Bell) who takes her back to his family home and the care of his sympathetic mother, (Julie Walters). Memories of their grand affair soon come flooding back.

Adapted from Turner’s own memoir by Scottish director Paul McGuigan, this consummate study of a truly extraordinary relationship is filled with humour, passion, and insight, effortlessly capturing the connection – both emotional and physical – between the pair.

Flying in the face of the ‘fading star’ epithet, Bening eloquently portrays a woman who will not compromise her professional ambitions or her desire for personal happiness. Jamie Bell, revelatory in this role, is more than a perfect match in what is a bracingly romantic and irresistible love story.

Meet Selena at the box office at 6 pm

The price is for cinema ticket only with all food and drinks at own expense.

If you wish to park at the Como complex, you can show your parking ticket and cinema ticket at the box office to get discounted parking.

Trivia Night - Sherlock Holmes Tavern

Sherlock Holmes, 415 Collins Street, Melbourne

Join us for a trivia night at the Sherlock Holmes on Collins Street which is a British styled pub located on Collins Street.

The trivia night is hosted by comedian Janet McLeod and offers winners $50 food & drink vouchers as well as quiz rounds for Jugs of Beer, Bottles of wine etc. Janet is a well-respected comedian and has a way of getting you involved in the night.

The Sherlock Holmes opened in 1985 and the hostelry has been extremely well received, as have its comestibles, ales wines and spirits. So much so that the worst criticism has been that the establishment is too small for the large numbers of discerning citizens who wish to avail themselves of the sundry attractions which this unique tavern affords.

Here is a home for the aficionados of the works of the eneffable Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, where the friendly shades of Dr Watson, Professor Moriarty (a changed man since he went over the falls) and the Stradivarius-playing, opium-smoking genius himself, the Great Detective, await your pleasure.

So meet Nicole at the reserved table for a fun trivia night.
