The film for this Thursday is
“Moon.” The last place you'd ever expect to find
With only three weeks left in his three year contract, Sam
Bell is getting anxious to finally return to Earth to be
with his wife Tess and their infant daughter, Eve. He is the
only occupant of a Moon-based manufacturing facility along
with his computer and assistant, GERTY. Direct communication
with Earth has not been possible due to a long-standing
communication malfunction and the long period of time alone
has resulted in him talking to himself for the most part, or
to his plants. When he has an accident however, he comes to
realise that his world is not what he thought it was…
All the reviews that I have read state that this is the most
under rated film of 2009. Great story, great script, great
Film starts at 8.00pm. Guest
tickets from The Windjammer on sale 7.30- 7.55.
The Princess and the Frog
Half term Friday 12th Feb –
Thursday 25th Feb at the Flavel The Princess and the
Frog is one of the most highly anticipated films of the
year. It marks Walt Disney Animation Studio's return to 2D
animation, to recapture the era of amazing movies like The
Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast – timeless
tales that have reached audiences across the world. However,
unlike these previous movies, The Princess and the Frog does
something new. It's an updated take on the classic fairy
tale, set in Jazzy New Orleans filled with witch doctors,
Maldonian princes, southern lovesick daughters, Jazz playing
alligators and even Cajun fireflies! In the midst of all
this jazz is Disney's first black princess, Tiana, and her
Tiana is a young girl who wants to follow her father's dream
and open up her very own restaurant. She works hard, never
taking a chance on Prince Charming to sweep her off her feet
- she is a realist Disney 'princess' - and that makes her
stand apart from the rest. And speaking of breaking from
tradition, Prince Naveen is another fresh take on the
classic Disney prince. He gets a fair amount of screen time
and shows us that princes are more than just stuffy suits.
The pair has great chemistry as frogs and their intertwining
journey is full of laughs and heart tingling moments
sprinkled with some good old Disney magic. Disney Animation
Studios has pulled it off again; they have conjured up
something fresh and new and have made it entertaining.
Perhaps we can expect greater things for the future because
this is a pretty good start.
Why not come down
for the weekend, or even a week?
Fashion with diversity at Living Coasts
Living Coasts is holding a
fashion show with a unique theme. It follows the success of
Fashion with Passion in 2009, when local students and Torbay
businesses joined forces to promote eco-friendly fashion.
This year’s show is entitled Fashion with Passion – the Web
of Life, and sets out to promote biodiversity through
fashion design. Living Coasts spokesperson Phil Knowling
said: “I don’t think anyone has ever held a fashion show
with the theme of biodiversity before – it’s a first!”
The show takes place at Living Coasts on Wednesday 10th
March, starting at 7.00pm. Students from Torquay Girls
Grammar School and South Devon College will be showing brand
new collections made from recycled and unwanted materials.
There will also be displays from Moss Bros and Foxy
Lingerie. Tradewinds, the Living Coasts shop, will be
launching its own line of branded leisure clothing on the
evening. In addition, there will be songs from entertainer
Jonathan Ray and live entertainment by local street dance
troupe Dance Leaders. Ben Moseby of Palm FM is hosting the
evening. Tickets are £8.50 to include canapés on arrival. To
book please telephone 01803 202470. The show is a charity
fundraising event, with all profits going to fund the vital
on-going conservation work carried out by Living Coasts.
2010 is the Year of Biodiversity and Living Coasts will be
running themed events on site throughout the year.
Biodiversity loss is a global, regional and national
problem, with plant and animal species disappearing every
day. The issue has social, economic and environmental
consequences. Living Coasts events coordinator Kate Hall,
one of the organisers, said: “The evening mixes glamour,
style and sophistication with fun and
environmentally-friendly ideas. We start with canapés on
arrival in Our Room with a View, the Living Coasts function
suite. Then it’s on to the catwalk.” For more details
