Experience A Little Summer With FILMCLUB
The after school cinema club wants to take your mind off the rain with their Season Of The Week...
In an effort to combat the miserable weather, FILMCLUB, the experts in film for young people, have picked 10 big screen sunny sizzlers to raise your spirits for their latest Season of the Week: Sunshine on a Rainy Day.
Gorgeous Italian landscapes feature in three of the film choices; the multi Oscar-winning Il Postino, the autobiographical epic Baaria, and the Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck starring classic Roman Holiday.
Beautiful Barcelona provides the backdrop for romantic drama Vicky Cristina Barcelona starring Scarlett Johanasson and Penelope Cruz, while closer to home, Emily Blunt stars in the Yorkshire based My Summer of Love.
For viewers who like their summers served with less romance and more bite, Steven Speilberg’s Jaws is a shark-filled cinematic thriller, while younger viewers can set sail on a tropical adventure with family classic Swiss Family Robinson, or sing-a-long with Cliff Richard and friends in the timeless musical Summer Holiday.
French comedy Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday will delight viewers with the mad-cap adventures of one man’s plight to enjoy his vacation, and rounding the season off, Five Have A Mystery To Solve provides school holiday scrapes in this 1960s adaptation of Enid Blyton's adventure story.
Take off your wellies, forget the rain and curl up on the sofa with FILMCLUB's Season of the Week: Sunshine on a Rainy Day.
