Film club to screen ‘The Concert’

LOUTH Film Club will bring in the New Year with feel good comedy drama ‘The Concert’ in the Playhouse Cinema in Louth on Monday, January 9.

Set in both Moscow and Paris, the film tells the story of a one-time conductor of the Bolshoi Orchestra, sacked by the Soviet government and forced to work as a cleaner.

A stroke of luck after intercepting an invitation for the orchestra to perform in the French capital gives him a chance to make his long awaited return to music.

“Though the plot is at times, somewhat implausible and the comedy rather broad, the film is a bright and uplifting celebration of the magic of making music, in particular Tchaikovsky’s soaringly beautiful Violin Concerto,” said a club spokesperson.

The Concert, in French and Russian, is Certificate 15 and will be screened with subtitles.

The show starts at 7.30pm. Non-members can also watch the screenings for the usual Playhouse ticket prices of £5.90 or £4.70 for 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 start taking full advantage of your cheaper tickets there and then.
