Friday 1st March 2019 - L'ATALANTE - at The Alexander Centre

Pop-up French cinema organised by the Faversham Town Twinning Association.
All proceeds go towards helping local schools and youth organisations visit Hazebrouck, Faversham's twin town in Northern France.

The film tells the story of capricious small-town girl Juliette (Dita Parlo) and barge captain Jean (Jean Dasté) marry after a whirlwind courtship, and she comes to live aboard his boat, L'Atalante. As they make their way down the Seine, Jean grows weary of Juliette's flirtations with his all-male crew, and Juliette longs to escape the monotony of the boat and experience the excitement of a big city. When she steals away to Paris by herself, her husband begins to think their marriage was a mistake.

Full licensed bar open from 7pm for this event.

£5 for FTTA members and Faversham Film Society members / £7 for non-members
