June mOVIE EVENT - LAST ORDERS (Britain) 2002
Director: Fred Schepisi
Wednesday 15 June at 6:40pm for supper. Movie starts at 7:05pm
The title refers to both a pub landlord's last call and the final wishes of a dying man, in this instance Jack Dodds (Michael Caine), an east London butcher who greatly influenced four men over the course of his flawed but decent lifetime. The quartet gathers to scatter Jack's ashes in Margate, where he had hoped to retire to a small seaside cottage with his wife Amy (Helen Mirren), a dream that never was fulfilled.
The four are professional horse race gambler Ray Johnson (Bob Hoskins), aka Lucky, who fought beside Jack during World War II and has been his best friend since; former boxer Lenny (David Hemmings), who is always ready to settle an argument with his fists; undertaker Vic (Tom Courtenay), who acts as a buffer of sorts; and Jack's son Vince (Ray Winstone), a dealer of used luxury cars, whose relationship with his father never quite recovered when, as a young boy, he learned his real family perished in a wartime bombing and Jack and Amy took in the orphaned infant and raised him as their own.

MAY MOVIE NIGHT - My Sweet Pepperland by direct Hiner Saleem
In May we travelled to the Middle East where we enjoyed a love story/western style movie for modern times.
Our My Sweet Pepperland supper was a delicious Turkish Tomato Cous Cous and Chick Pea dish served with Wild Rocket splashed with Pomegranate molasses lovingly prepared by our cinema chefs JohnJon and Mark. For dessert, we were treated to Turkish Delight with warm mint and green honey tea.
Thanks once again to Trent and Katie Harvison of Starry Night's Outdoor Cinemas (screen and equipment), Lisa and Bruce Williment from Parti Events (fabulous theming) and Elfi Fairchild from The Nest @ Eumundi for the delicious coffee.
And the event would be impossible if it were not for our fabulous volunteers Paula, Viv, Bruce, Marilyn, Lee and Stuart. Thank you for taking us around the world one movie at a time!
If you enjoyed our May movie event - or you didn't - please take our survey to provide us with feedback so we can continue to improve your movie experience!
