Join us for the final screening this term, as we celebrate the holiday spirit with Jacques Demy’s heart-tugging romantic drama, a dazzling love story told entirely through colours and song. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks as we enjoy “one of the most revered and unorthodox movie musicals of all time!” Before the screening, we will be holding a prize draw amongst everyone present, where one lucky audience member can walk away with a special film-related Christmas Present!
