If you haven’t booked your holidays yet then what could be a better substitute than a day basking in the glories of French cinema?

From the birth of film to the present day the French cinema industry has produced some wonderful films which have proved perennially popular outside France.

On Saturday, April 18, King’s Lynn Community Cinema Club has organised a day school which will examine some well-known, and less well-known, classics.

Come along and enjoy clips from Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday, Amelie, The Red Balloon, Jean de Florette and the wonderful Cléo de 5 à 7 which focuses on a June day in Paris in the company of the charming Corinne Marchand.

There will be many more offerings and, by the end of the day, you will have a good overview of French film whilst enjoying a day of pleasant and painless armchair travelling!

The day will run from 10-4.30pm and takes place at the Friends’ Meeting House, Bridge Street, King’s Lynn. The tutor will be the Cinema Club’s education officer Sue Burge who teaches at Cinema City in Norwich and the Picturehouse in Cambridge.

The course fee is £20 and to book your place e-mail the Cinema Club at communitycinemaclub@googlemail.com

Further details are on the club’s website www.klccc.uk

There’ll be tea, coffee and biscuits provided and all participants are invited to bring along something for a shared lunch ... à bientôt
