Quartet comes to the Cotswolds

Venues across the Cotswold District are in for a treat this May as the star studded movie Quartet - directed by Dustin Hoffman and starring national treasures Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Tom Courtenay and Billy Connolly - is shown as part of the Rural Cinema scheme. Quartet is set in a home for retired musicians, where the annual concert to celebrate Verdi’s Birthday is disrupted by the arrival of Jean (Maggie Smith), an eternal diva and the former wife of one of the residents.

Commenting on the screening of Quartet, Sarah Lewis, Rural Cinema Coordinator, said:
“We’re thrilled to be able to show such a popular new film. Our screenings of Argo and Skyfall earlier this year were hugely appreciated and we are hoping to have the same success with Quartet!”

She continued:
“The Rural Cinema scheme has been operating since 2003, and has visited at least 27 venues across the Cotswold District. We provide new entertainment and encourage local groups to take on the promotion and management of the events. The aim is to bring a high quality film experience to rural isolated areas and, in doing so, help to rejuvenate local communities. ”
