10.15am (for tea/coffee), Friday October 26th
Palace Cinema, 231 Whitehorse Road Balwyn (Melway 46 C7)
The Group’s October movie is “The Seagull”, which is based on the play of the same name by Anton Chekhov.
An aging actress named Irina Arkadina pays summer visits to her brother Pjotr Nikolayevich Sorin and her son Konstantin on a country estate. On one occasion, she brings Boris Trigorin, a successful novelist and her lover. Nina, a free and innocent girl on a neighbouring estate who is in a relationship with Konstantin, falls in love with Boris.
For the early birds , why not meet at the cinema cafe around 10.15am for a tea/coffee and chat prior to the show. And, perhaps for those with some spare time after the movie, we can adjourn next door to The Republic Of Letters for a sandwich or cake. Hope to see you on the day.
