Che Parts One & Two

Keswick Film Club is screening both parts of Che (The Argentine and Guerrilla) on Sunday 29th March

With Benicio del Toro on terrific form in the title role, this is the way in which Steven Soderbergh wanted his work to be appreciated. Andrew O’Hehir, respected critic of saw the whole piece at Cannes, and reported:
‘I'd be surprised if Che doesn't win the Palme d'Or , but be that as it may, nobody who saw it here will ever forget it.’
This is one of the very few opportunities you will have to see the complete work in one sitting (we will give a half-hour ‘tea-break!), particularly at an entrance price of £4, so do come to Keswick (for the day, for the weekend?) and enjoy seeing a masterly overview of one of the Twentieth Century’s most charismatic figures.

We're glad to report that a date has been found for the screening of Gomorrah - which didn't happen in December because of non-arrival of the print. Both the Alhambra and all the prints of the film have been very busy, but we can now announce that Gomorrah will be screened at 5pm on Saturday 28th March.

This now makes for a special weekend for film enthusiasts: you also have the extremely rare chance to see both parts of Che on the following day, starting at 2.30pm and going through to 7.30pm ('tea' interval included!). Where else in North Western England...?
