The Photo Film Club #004

Posted on Apr 13, 2022 by in Events, Future Exhibitions

THURSDAY 28th APRIL

7pm (doors 6.30pm)

PECKER (15)

THE PHOTO FILM CLUB hosts a photography based film or documentary roughly every 6 weeks in the wonderful Theatr Colwyn cinema.

Watch a photography based film, meet some old friends, make some new friends, then maybe go on for an optional drink, snack or meal somewhere in the town for a bit of a social.

We aim to keep the tickets prices for the film screenings as low as we possibly can to open up the screening for more people. If you are in the position to help out a little more, please consider making an extra donation to Oriel Colwyn at checkout.

Our fourth Photo Film Club event is on THURSDAY 28th APRIL at 7pm (doors 6.30pm) where we will be showing the film PECKER.

Tickets are priced at £5

Ohh... and one last thing, it is not really a club, we just liked the name… Its not exclusive, you don’t have to join and everyone is welcome!

BOOK TICKETS

 

Moving to a Thursday evening screening this month, The Photo Film Club presents a (much needed) light-hearted look at the world of photography and art with a one-night-only screening of John Waters 1998 cult classic PECKER.

Waters (“Hairspray,” “Pink Flamingo”) directs this offbeat comedy sending up the pretensions of the art world as it follows the fortunes of a naive amateur photographer. Pecker (Edward Furlong) makes a living working behind a sandwich shop counter, but comes alive behind the lens of a camera. His snapshots of his odd family and friends are discovered by an art dealer, who decides they are masterpieces and determines to make Pecker the toast of the New York gallery set. But will his new-found fame alienate Pecker from his photographs' subjects, and, in particular, Shelly (Christina Ricci), the woman he loves?

A gritty view of life as an emerging artist and a sneak peek into the pitfalls of making it big in the Manhattan art world. Pecker grapples with the very dilemmas that beset anyone aspiring to turn their love for photography into a profession or accept its siren call as a vocation.

Mae’n bleser gennym gyhoeddi menter newydd, CLWB FFILM PHOTO a fydd yn dangos am y tro cyntaf erioed ffilm neu raglen ddogfen yn seiliedig ar ffotograffiaeth tua bob 6 wythnos yn sinema hyfryd Theatr Colwyn.

Byddwn yn ceisio cadw prisiau tocynnau mor isel â phosibl fel eu bod yn fwy hygyrch. Os gallwch chi helpu ychydig, ystyriwch wneud cyfraniad ychwanegol bach i Oriel Colwyn wrth i chi dalu.
