HARMANS CROSS MOVIE NIGHTS
On Tuesday 8th. May we’re showing “Paddington 2” at 7.30 in Harman’s Cross Village Hall.
When we screened the first Paddington, a few years ago, the hall was choc-a-bloc. And only one child! This sequel promises an equally entertaining evening out. Everyone’s favourite Peruvian immigrant is now happily settled with the Brown family, (Sally Hawkins and Hugh Bonneville) in their perfect haven of Windsor Gardens. As popular member of the local community he picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present, a pop-up book, for his Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday. The disaster prone bear tries his hand at being a barber and window-cleaner with Chaplinesque results. Enter Hugh Grant, the camp baddie, playing Phoenix Buchanan, a once distinguished actor now reduced to doing gourmet dog food commercials. The unspeakable Phoenix steals the book, which contains clues to where a cache of treasure may be found, and frames Paddington for the crime. So poor Paddington goes to prison for something he didn’t do, but there finds solace in friendship with the prison’s cook. Together, they plan an escape and the show-stopping climax involves a daring dash, Paddington becoming an ursine James Bond in a blue duffel coat. The screenplay perfectly catches the tone of the original books’ author, Michael Bond, who died last year. Paddington 2 is every bit as enchanting as the first. Pure delight, sharp and sweet, like marmalade.
Tickets £5 on the door, which will open, along with the bar, at 7pm.
