Cinema Club for the over 60s

The next offering is the film The Holdovers at the Finsbury Park PictureHouse at 2:30pm on Tuesday 6 February. The cost is £7.30. If you’re coming for the first time, you’ll have to join the PictureHouse’s Silver Screen programme but it’s free and painless to sign up. This film is 2 hours and 13 mins so it should finish about 5pm. There are a lot of trailers. We can then to into the Members Lounge to have a chat.

Here is the synopsis:
From acclaimed director Alexander Payne, The Holdovers follows a curmudgeonly instructor (Paul Giamatti) at a New England prep school who is forced to remain on campus during Christmas break to babysit the handful of students with nowhere to go.

Eventually he forms an unlikely bond with one of them -- a damaged, brainy troublemaker (newcomer Dominic Sessa) -- and with the school’s head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam (Da’Vine Joy Randolph).

It’s nominated for five Oscars including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress.

Here’s the trailer

I hope to see you there.
