On 21st August, TT Liquor and Cointreau will be attempting to hoist you out of those post-summer blues with a screening of Amélie, an uplifting French romantic comedy directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
This film of fancy follows a young woman – Amélie – who discretely orchestrates the lives of the people around her, invoking elements of magical realism to create a world exclusively of her own making.
Shot in over 80 Parisian locations, acclaimed director Jean-Pierre Jeunet invokes his incomparable visionary style to capture the exquisite charm and mystery of modern-day Paris through the eyes of a beautiful ingenue.
Over a decade on, Amélie holds up. It is still visually striking, still fresh and appealing, charming and resonant. For better or for worse, it made the bohemian district of Montmartre popular in a way that it hadn’t quite been before, it assisted in (if not launched) the career of painter Michael Sowa, whose whimsical/surreal images of quirky animals appear throughout the film, and – most of all – it left an enduring imprint on popular culture and helped redefine what a romantic comedy could be.
And the Francophilia continues right on into our liquid serves for the evening, as we collaborate with venerable French liqueur producers Cointreau on the exclusive bar menu for the night. There’ll also be some more Cointreau-related goods and activities for guests to get stuck into.
Tickets are £15 for the one, £20 for a pair using the code ‘paris’ at checkout, and are available below. Complimentary Cointreau cocktail included.
Arrival – Attendees will arrive through the doors of our liquor store at 7pm and purchase any beer, wine, or other refreshments they like. Afterwards, guest can make their way down into our Cellar Bar to receive their complimentary cocktail for the night.
Screening – Then, guests will be invited upstairs to our new 52-seater cinema room, where there’ll be a screening of a cult classic after a small period allotted for short trailers.
Afters – After the show, attendees will be invited back down to the Cellar Bar, where you can drink, discuss, and continue your evening. Reservations may be required.
