A Bande a Part

Film: A Bande á Part

April
13
NEW DATE: Friday 13th April 2018
Doors open 7.30pm
£4 (£3 unwaged)

In the dreary Parisian suburb of Joinville, Brasseur and Frey take turns romancing with beautiful student Odile. When Odile mentions the big pile of cash stashed at her aunt's villa it seems like a piece of cake burglary, but of course these things rarely go as planned….

Despite being over 50 years old and rarely seen, Bande á Part remains instantly recognisable, such is director Jean Luc Goddard's influence on modern cinema. 

Our bar is open
