Flix In The Stix – Capel’s Cinematic Experience

Our film for the next month promises to be a cracker! “Argo”. It is based on an almost unbelievable true story: when the Iranians famously seized the US Embassy in Teheran in 1969, six US diplomats fled to the Canadian Embassy. An extraordinary plot was concocted to get them out under the cover of a fake film being shot in the Iranian desert, without compromising the neutrality of the Canadians and of course without the Iranian revolutionaries finding out. It actually did happen. This is a thrilling film, far better and more intelligent than the conventional action movie. Dramatic, nail biting and hilarious, Ben Affleck and John Goodman star.

Come and enjoy this film on the big screen in the Memorial Hall, Capel on Tuesday, 2nd April. Doors open 7:30pm. Programme commences 8pm. Pre-fil and interval refreshments available. Admission £4. Everyone welcome.

I now have a selection of films for the future, subject to availability, and not necessarily in this order, just an appetite wetter!
