Gather your chums and join us for Tea Time Talkies at The Roxy - a relaxed, indulgent Sunday afternoon with a classic movie and delicious Devonshire Tea*!
On Saturday 24th April we’ll be screening The Dam Busters (1955), an exceptionally good war-in-the-air drama from Britain, based on the true story of the RAF's 1943 low-level raids on Germany's Ruhr dams.
After inventing the "bouncing bomb," which can skip across water until it encounters a dam to explode, Dr. Barnes Wallis (Michael Redgrave) struggles for years to develop his new device for use in World War II. Once the bombs are ready to be tested, Wing Commander Guy Gibson's (Richard Todd) squadron must be specially trained to drop the sensitive weapons on Germany's Ruhr Dams. Based on true events, this British film features a legendary grand finale of special effects.
The film screening will consist of a 30-minute intermission where a delicious Devonshire Tea* awaits (a cup of tea and traditional homemade scone with cream and jam).
*Strictly no dietaries catered for.
