A New Dawn Fades…
January and February are usually months in which so much bleakness can mount up, so the GCPH are this year looking to lighten the mood a little as we begin 2020 with a few rockets and a whole load of glitter.
We will be showing three very different recent musicals in the form of the Scottish high school zombie flick Anna and the Apocalypse, The Boss inspired Luton-set Blinded by the Light and the glammed up Elton John biopic Rocketman—the number one British film of last year.
Our Classic Hollywood Season continues this year with films from 1930, 1940, 1950 and 1960. We kick things off with a classic Hollywood rom-com, in George Cukor’s Born Yesterday. We also have a link up with our InterSci discussion group who will be screening a relevant doc in February. There are reasons to be cheerful in 2020 and the Grassmarket Community Picture House is definitely one of them.
