10th Anniversary Screening 14th September- The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

In September 2008 here in Newcastle West Film Club we had our 1st ever screening. Now we are marking our 10th anniversary and also our 21st season which we think is special so we are going to mark the occasion. Whether you were there for the first night or if this will be your first time we would love you to join us.

We tried to think of what film we might show and after much deliberation we realised we got it right first time around with our opening film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. So we are going for full on nostalgia and going back to where it all began. This film stands the test of time telling the amazing real life story of Jean-Dominique Bauby who was editor in chief of French Elle magazine. The film is based on his memoir which he wrote after having a stroke and being left with Locked in Syndrome. He did so by blinking each letter with his left eye which took him ten months.
For the night that is in it we have a special reduced entry cost of €5 and you won’t have to put your hand in your pocket after that. This is an over 18s event. There is no need to book, just arrive on the night.
Desmond Complex is a wheelchair accessible venue and we have an audio loop.
