The Umbrellas of Cherbourg with Pop Up Restaurant

Dir. Jacques Demy | France, West Germany 1964 | 93min | PG | Subtitles

"Something rather wonderful" - Time Out

Vibrant and inventive all-singing, all-dancing, bitter-sweet romance; a truly original film from the director who sought to create an enchanting, poignant fantasy world governed by chance, love and memory.

Forsaking the familiar backdrop of a Broadway show Demy chooses to revel in the myth and magic of everyday romance, in all its sentimental and banal glory.

A shopgirl (Catherine Deneuve) and a poor mechanic fall in love only to be separated when he departs for military service. Discovering she is pregnant, she is nudged into marrying an accommodating diamond merchant by her ambitious mother.

Vivid colours and elegant camera choreography are bound together by Michel Legrand's sumptuous score.

This screening is accompanied by Pea Souk's special pop up restaurant before the film in our bar from 18:00 for £8.00.
Make sure to book in - spaces are limited, and our last two pop up restaurants sold out!
