The year of the Rabit
Celebrate the Chinese New Year
in style. Add some tradition to the cold winter months and
join in a Chinese New Year celebration at Dartmouth Golf and
Country Club. The Chinese New Year is the start of the most
important of the traditional Chinese holidays, the Spring
Festival, where the Chinese give presents and sweep out the
bad luck from their homes. The New Year is looked at as a
great way to reconcile and forget grudges and what better
way to start than by joining in the celebrations at DGCC.
The Year of the Rabbit will be commemorated on Friday
February 11, the latest in the club’s themed evenings,
starting at 7.30pm with a drink on arrival followed by a
two-course Chinese buffet. To book a ticket for just £19.95
per person, contact the bar and bistro on 01803 712013
'Breakfast at Tiffany's'
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (PG) - 50
Years on @ the Flavel, Dartmouth
Screening on Mon 14th Feb @ 7.30pm & Thurs 17th Feb @ 2.30pm
The Perfect Way to Spend Valentine’s Evening………
It's been 50 years since Audrey Hepburn's version of chic
wild thing Holly Golightly first hit the big screen. Ever
since, women have seen something compelling in her story –
especially those not fooled by the 'happy' ending.
This pure classic has been digitally re-mastered, giving a
high definition picture and sound quality that is second to
none with the all new Flavel digital technology & is a
favourite for many people……
Set in 1961, based on Truman Capote's novella about Paul
(George Peppard), a struggling writer who is intrigued with
his neighbour, Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn). As she
staggers home early one morning in her little black dress
and sunglasses after yet another all-night bender during
which she likely doled out small favours to amorous older
gentlemen in exchange for rent money. Pausing in front of
Tiffany’s, Holly munches a Danish and sips coffee as she
admires the jewellery in the window. It’s an iconic movie
moment. Holly sees herself as a free-spirit, a party girl,
someone who, as she puts it, won’t be caged by love or
commitments. It’s a lonely life, but it pays the bills.
The’60s are on the verge of swinging.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is packed with wonderful dialogue and
unforgettable moments, including a hilarious shoplifting
scene and, of course, the transcendent moment when the
beautiful Hepburn sings “Moon River” on her fire escape.
(Henry Mancini was commissioned to come up with a song that
would fit within Hepburn’s very narrow vocal range.) Whether
or not Holly and Paul end up together is ultimately less
important than whether they can forgive each other — and
themselves — for the many errors of their ways. Capote’s New
York is not a place where redemption comes easily, but maybe
these two can find it. Holly deserves a happy ending.
