Movie Matinee: The Bookshop

Next date: Monday, 18 March 2024 | 02:00 PM to 11:59 PM

Movie Matinee

Celebrate NSW Seniors Festival 2024 with two special film screenings of The Bookshop. 

England, 1959. Florence Green, a free-spirited widow, puts grief behind her and risks everything to open up a bookshop - the first such shop in a sleepy seaside town, but she is not without opposition. Is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one?  

Based on Penelope Fitzgerald's acclaimed novel and directed by Isabel Coixet, The Bookshop is an elegant film about power, personal resolve and the battle for the soul of a community. 

Tuesday’s session features an introduction by Noel Cowan of the Movie Musical Memorabilia exhibition.
