1967 PG 105 mins with Subtitles
Sidney Poitier will blow you away in his powerful and moving performance as Mark Thackeray, a new teacher who is thrown in the deep end teaching unruly high school students in London’s East End. Realising they need a different kind of education than what comes out of a textbook, he changes tack and risks inspiring them to embrace their potential and their future life outside of school.
This screening follows the Isel Twilight Market (which starts at 4 pm) so gather a group, perhaps put on your favourite onesie and come for dinner, enjoy the park and watch the region’s glorious summer sunsets. Wrap up warm and please pocket a torch to light your way home.
If it looks like rain, please text “Is it on?” to 021 776 623 after 7:30pm.
Please pack it in, pack it out and keep our parks beautiful!
