Musical drama with Peak Film Society

American drama A Late Quartet will be the next film to be screened by Glossop’s community cinema, Peak Film Society.

The screening will be held at the Partington Theatre, on Henry Street, from 7.30pm on Saturday November 16.

In A Late Quartet, after a classical string quartet’s 25 years of success, Peter, the cellist and oldest member, decides he must retire when he learns he has Parkinson’s disease.

For the others, the announcement is a catalyst for letting their hidden resentments surface, while the married members’ daughter has disruptive desires of her own.

All this threatens to tear the group apart even as they are famous for playing Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 14, Opus 131 - a piece that is played non-stop no matter how life interferes.

Peak Film Society will be supporting Parkinson’s UK by holding a special raffle and selling the charity’s Christmas cards.

The theatre clubroom will also host an informal gathering of Parkinson’s UK’s Tameside and Glossop support group from 5.30pm.

Film tickets, priced £4.50 (£3.50 concessions) are available from Bay Tree Books or from the theatre on the evening of the show.
