ON Monday, June 25, at the Playhouse Cinema, Louth Film Club will be screening the enchanting and colourful animated film Arrietty, based on Mary Norton’s The Borrowers, about a family of miniature people living under the floorboards of a house occupied by full-size human beings.
All proceeds will be donated to Home-Start East Lindsey, a charity supporting local families with young children.
Arrietty is the latest film from Japan’s prolific Studio Ghibli, makers of such strikingly beautiful animations as Spirited Away and Ponyo.
The club will be showing the UK version of Arrietty, voiced in English by British and Irish actors, including Mark Strong, Olivia Colman and Phyllida Law, with Saoirse Ronan as Arrietty, the daughter of the diminutive Clock family, and Tom Holland as the ‘human bean’ boy she befriends.
Arrietty is Certificate U. The show starts at 7.30pm. Non-members are welcome, paying the normal Playhouse Cinema ticket prices.
The club’s programme of films, up to January 2013, is available, free, from Off The Beaten Tracks record shop at 36 Aswell Street (closed on Thursdays) or from Louth Library or the Playhouse. The club’s website — www.louthfilmclub.com — also has details of its forthcoming films.
