Our last Flicker of 2009 was 'It's A Wonderful Life' and our surprise guest was the equally wonderful Mr. Bill Nighy.
The movie is based on a short story by Philip Van Doren Stern, an American Historian who wrote it in 1943 as a Christmas card for his nearest and dearest.
To have the opportunity of being read a terrific story by a impeccable storyteller for a precious twenty minutes is a rare pleasure, Jackanory for adults.It was so lovely to have so many friends join us for the evening, there was a real festive spirit, we even had carol singing. When we opened the doors of The Lexi Cinema at the end of the evening, the snow had fallen and it was all a bit magical really and a lovely end to the first flicker year.
A special mention must be made of Rob Ryan for providing us with an outstanding poster for the evening. It encapsulated the story perfectly as well as being a striking and beautiful image. Tidal Media provided our lovely flickbook.
