Corrie Film Club: Day in the Dark 2024 - Sat 23 March

Saturday 23rd March – much later in the year than normal – will be Corrie Film Club’s, Day in the Dark a celebration of film from 11.00 in the morning until 10.00 at night.



This year the theme is iconic British films and actors from the mid twentieth century to the present. Quite a task in 4 films!! Obviously, not all the great actors can be represented but this is an effort to include those not already focussed on by Corrie Film Club.


The day begins with a special treat at 11.00am with two short films presented by the film-maker himself – John Perivolaris.



John is an award-winning Greek director, screenwriter and producer making films in Scotland. He’s interested in a range of genres, from drama to thriller, horror, and documentary. His short horror film The Hand That Feeds You is being distributed by popular horror YouTube channel Deformed Lunchbox, and he’s an alumnus of the University of the West of Scotland, where he received a Master of Arts in Filmmaking.


This is bound to be really interesting so, if you can get to Corrie Hall at 11.00 please come for a coffee and support John.


The day continues:

  • 12pm: a bowl of soup and some bread and cheese (provided)

  • 1pm: (approx) a showing of the iconic The Italian Job (PG), a film so representative of the 1960s starring Michael Caine and Noel Coward.

  • 2.30pm: (approx) representing the 1970s will be the contraversial black comedy, The Ruling Class (15) starring Peter O’Toole (in a tour de force role as an aristocrat who believes that he is a re- incarnation of Jesus), Alistair Sim at his best as a feeble minded bishop and Arthur Lowe as a hilariousy insolent left-wing man servant!

  • 5pm: Tea and cake

  • 5.30pm: (approx) Kenneth Branagh’s Henry V (PG) chosen to represent the 1980s for the quality of its filming (BAFTA and Academy Award winner) and the powerful performances from the cream of British acting including Brian Blessed, Judi Dench, Ian Holm, Derek Jacobi, Paul Scofield and Emma Thompson.

  • 7.30pm: we will all have a supper together

  • 8.30: (approx) enjoy our final film chosen for the contemporary decades, Living (12) with Bill Nighy in a career – best performance and a heart warming screenplay by Kazuo Ishiguro.


Please feel free to dip in and dip out of the day as you please to see the films that interest you. All welcome.


Free entry but a small contribution for non- members to Corrie and Sannox Village Hall will be appreciated.
