Double Bill & Meal

Heat And Dust / Monsoon Wedding

We are travelling to the exoticism of India, with the chance of a curry (or not) meal between!

First on the menu is Heat and Dust (1983), a wonderfully compelling story of two women in different eras being captivated by India. Modern day Anne travels to India to investigate the intriguing and scandalous life of her grand-aunt Olivia, who after marrying Douglas, a civil servant in the colonial administration, joins him in India in the early 1920s. Anne and Olivia’s stories are intertwined, and Anne’s journey begins to parallel that of her aunt. Starring Greta Scacchi and Julie Christie, the film has an evocative musical score and wonderful BAFTA winning cinematography.

After our meal, we are showing Monsoon Wedding (2001), set in the modern upper-middle class of India where Western lifestyle mixes with old tradition. A stressed father, a bride-to-be with a secret, a smitten event planner, and relatives from around the world create much ado about the preparations for an arranged marriage. With lots of music – and the threat of rain!

Your seats and meal need to be booked in advance, menu and booking information can be found here.
