Lost in Paris [Paris pieds nus]
director: Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon
starring: Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel, Emmanuelle Riva

Lost in Paris
After receiving a letter from her visually impaired and slightly senile Aunt Martha, Fiona takes a trip from Canada to France to visit her, only to find that she has disappeared. When a mishap strips Fiona of her belongings, a chance meeting with oddball homeless man Dom marks the start of a relationship that grows as they traverse the city's famous sights and streets. Directed by and starring real-life couple Fiona Gordon and Dominique Abel, Lost in Paris is a charming and whimsical delight, an inventive and often hilarious comedy with touching romantic overtones and acute observations on the human need for personal connection.


Why our films (usually) have to start promptly at 8.30pm

Although our films are scheduled to start at 8.30pm, on busier nights we've always been able to hold up the start until everyone is in and seated. With the arrival of digital projection, however, this has all changed. Most of the films we screen now arrive as high definition digital files that are coded to play at a specific time, over which the projectionist has no control. This means that the film has to start playing at 8.30pm or not at all. Thus to avoid potentially missing the start of the film, it's worth arriving in good time for the screening.

Please note that some longer films will be scheduled to start at 8pm.
