the flicker club presents…
It’s A Wonderful Life
presented by a special guest reader…
18 December 2011
Are you sitting comfortably?
For one night only, on Sunday 18th December, the flicker club, are proud to present: It’s a Wonderful Life, Starring James Stewart.
Join us as we celebrate the 65th anniversary of this timeless Christmas classic at the magnificent Hampstead Theatre.
In flicker club tradition, we begin the evening by introducing a surprise guest who will read to us the original story ‘The Greatest Gift’ from which this legendary film is adapted, Jackanory for adults if you like, but who will our mysterious narrator be this year? Last year it was Tom Hollander and the year before Bill Nighy…
All will be revealed on the night, but suffice to say we will be in the hands of a real master.
So come along and be serenaded by our carol singers, drink, eat and be merry in the glorious Hampstead Theatre, before settling back in your seat and listening to the dulcet tones of our surprise special guest prior to the film itself.
And as its Christmas you will not leave empty handed. On top of our usual goody bag there will be a Secret Santa DVD sack. Bring a wrapped copy of a film you’d like to share and you will leave with a new one…
So Come All Ye Faithful and we’ll see you at Hampstead Theatre…
the flicker club.
