ON Monday, January 9, at the Playhouse Cinema, Louth Film Club welcomes the New Year with a feelgood comedy drama set in Moscow and Paris.
A one-time conductor of the Bolshoi Orchestra, sacked by the Soviet government and demoted to work as a cleaner, is given a lucky chance for a comeback when he intercepts an invitation for the orchestra to perform in the French capital.
The comedy is rather broad and the plot, at times, somewhat implausible, but the film is a bright and breezy celebration of the magic of making music, in particular Tchaikovsky’s soaringly beautiful Violin Concerto.
The Concert, in French and Russian, with subtitles, is Certificate 15.
The show starts at 7.30pm.
Non-members are welcome at Louth Film Club’s screenings, paying the normal Playhouse ticket prices, currently £5.90 or £4.70 concessions
Louth Film Club’s colourful new, free programme for February 2012 to January 2013 will be available at the cinema.
If you arrive in good time you can sign up for membership for the new club year, and take immediate advantage of the cheaper tickets.
