Our boutique open air cinema at Coopers Yard returns with a showing of Alexander Payne’s Sideways, a very funny but heart-felt look at middle life and love through the eyes of wine-obsessive Miles and his womanising friend Jack. Via their road trip through wine country Jack is looking for his “last taste of freedom”; Miles just wants to taste perfection in a bottle. Jack is fine with cheap Merlot; Miles pines for the elusive, perfect Pinot. Many thanks to Crystal Palace International Film Festival and to Stanley’s Film Club for helping stage this event. Reserve your place with a donation of £10 with all funds going to support the festival. First come first served. Book place(s) by emailing info@crystalpalacefestival.org
