Al Fresco Summer Movies - Double Billing

Saturday 14th December 2019

Trip To The Moon 1906 16mins
One of the few surviving films by Georges Méliès, whose film making talents and creativity were celebrated in the 2011 movie Hugo. In Trip To The Moon an association of astronomers has convened to listen to the plan of Professor Barbenfouillis, their president, to fly to the moon. With the one dissenting voice quashed by Barbenfouillis and the other members, the plan is approved!

Followed by

A Christmas Carol 1951 86 mins G With Subtitles
Based on the classic novel by Charles Dickens, we follow the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (Alastair Sim) as he is visited by the ghosts of Christmases past, present and future. Can Scrooge see the error of his ways and become less of a humbug? Subtitles on 14 Dec
