The Lesflicks Film Club is a hosted event where women come together to watch a lesbian film in a cinema. After the film we have a social so you can discuss the film and meet other women. The South East edition is special as we have the venue to ourselves and have chosen the film!
Due to social distancing and safety requirements, tickets must be bought online in advance. No cash on the day. Masks must be worn. Cinema will be spaced out seating with a maximum capacity of 40 (normal capacity 84). The good news is every seat comes with a free seat for your bag or popcorn! The venue has an outside space for the post-screening social. We will need to form bubbles of 6 people if you want to stay after the film. The venue has plenty of space to facilitate this.
FILM: Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Synopsis: Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) made her living in the 1970’s and 80’s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant). An adaptation of the memoir “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” relays the true story of the best-selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats).
