This Sunday at 4pm the Duns Film Club opens its first season with a screening of the iconic 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Based on Truman Capote’s novel, this is the story of Holly Golightly, a young woman in New York City who meets a young man when he moves into her apartment building. He is with a wealthy older woman, but he wants to be a writer. She is working as an expensive escort and searching for a rich, older man to marry. Starring Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard and Mickey Rooney, and directed by Blake Edwards, the film won numerous academy awards including Best Actress for Audrey Hepburn. Run time 115 minutes.
This feature will be accompanied by Presto, a 2008 short film about a magician trying to perform a show with his uncooperative rabbit. This Pixar animation is a gag-filled homage to classic cartoons such as Tom and Jerry and Looney Tunes.
The season runs from this Sunday, 17 September, to next April with a programme of film classics, short films and speakers. Tickets are £6 each showing; a discounted subscription for seven film shows is £35. Refreshments are also available.
