two for the road 2

In view of the recent passing of Albert Finney (Tom Jones, Miller’s Crossing) and Stanley Donen (Singing in the Rain) we will be showing Two for the Road, Donen’s classic film with Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn.

On their third identical voyage from London to the Riviera, Joanna Wallace (Audrey Hepburn) and husband Mark (Albert Finney) explore their 12-year marriage in a series of wry and illuminating flashbacks. They reminisce about the glorious beginning of their love affair, the early years of marriage and the events that led to their subsequent infidelities. As they try to understand their relationship, they must accept how they have changed if they are to rekindle their original love.

We are working on a plan to limit Cinematiki to 30 people each Monday night. Parking has become a problem. (last week AAA came twice to pull cars out) Your suggestions are welcome. (Please don’t bother Michelle with the suggestions or complaints)

Thanks, Tom
