Film Night – Friday, 28th February at 2.30 and 7.30pm
The show you’ve all been waiting for – Downton Abbey!
Downton Abbey (PG) is a 2019 historical period drama film written by Julian Fellowes, creator and writer of the television series of the same name, produced by Gareth Neame, Liz Trubridge and Fellowes, and directed by Michael Engler. The film continues the storyline from the series, with much of the original cast returning. It is set in 1927 and depicts a visit by the King and Queen to the Crawley family’s English country house in the Yorkshire countryside. As the Royal staff descend on Downton, an assassin has also arrived and attempts to kill the monarch. The family and servants are pitted against the royal entourage, including the Queen’s lady-in-waiting, who has fallen out with the Crawleys, especially the Dowager Countess, over an inheritance issue.
Tickets £6.00 or £5.00 for Community Centre members are available from the Centre office. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
