Cinema – On the Basis of Sex (12A)
July 18 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
A biopic of Ruth Bader Ginsburg – this is a triumph against all odds story. The film follows Ruth as she enters Harvard Law School and ends in the Court of Appeal with her winning the tax case that set her down as one of America’s most important attorneys. We witness how through this period Ruth had to cope with being patronised and discriminated against at every turn because of her gender but she is determined to succeed. Her fight against prejudice and injustice is sympathetically played by Felicity Jones. The film is not just about her legal crusade but is also tells of an extraordinary marriage with her husband, Marty, that lifts it to new heights.
Doors open at 7pm. Licensed bar and ice creams on sale in the interval. Adults £5.50, 16s and under £3.00.
