Film Stars don't die in Liverpool at Kiwi Loge

I've found out there is a little cinema, the Kiwi Loge, in Oberer Graben that shows English movies - the more unusual ones you won't very often find being shown. I'm absolutely made up. I used to run a film club in England and knew there would be something similar hiding in Winterthur somewhere - and now I've found it!

And it's showing Film Stars don't die in Liverpool - over the weekend in English (with German and French subtitles) Performances take place at 5.30pm and 8pm each day from today until Monday. Admission 17fr. Here's the blurb:

Film Stars don't die in Liverpool, a movie by Paul McGuigan.

Based on the heart-rending memoirs of British actor Peter Turner telling the playful yet passionate love story between Turner and eccentric actress and Academy Award winner Gloria Grahame (The Bad and the Beautiful). What begins as an exciting affair between the legendary film diva and her adolescent lover quickly develops into a deeper relationship. After all, Turner is the only person who can give Grahame consolation and strength during the last tragic days of her life. As always, Grahame Turner is adorable - for a last, deeply moving performance.
