Celebrating the 60th birthday anniversary of Krzysztof Kieślowski, one of the most acclaimed directors of the second half of the 20th century, we are happy to invite you to see his renown “Three Colours” trilogy.

There will be only one screening per film, so do not miss it…

BOOKING DATES – TBC


The “Tree Colours” are named after the colors of the French flag and represent the principles of the French Revolution – freedom, equality, and fraternity – but there is much more to explore while watching the films.

Set in Paris, Warsaw and Geneva, from tragedy to comedy, “Blue, White and Red” present people experiencing deep personal disturbances – love and loss, hate and deceit, loosing everything and and starting again.

Excellent cinematography and the captivating play of actors such as Juliette Binoche, Julie Delpy, Irène Jacob and Jean-Louis Trintignant. Not to be missed.

“Blue” is the story of Julie (Juliette Binoche) who loses her husband, an acclaimed composer and her young daughter in a car accident. The movie is more than just a study of grief; it’s also a story of liberation, as the woman attempts to free herself from the past while confronting truths about the life of her late husband.

“White” – the adventures of Karol (Zbigniew Zamachowski), a Polish immigrant living in France. He decided to leave Paris for his native Warsaw when his wife (Julie Delpy) sues him for divorce and then frames him for arson after setting her own hairdressing salon ablaze.  An elaborate revenge plot, both a dark comedy about the economic inequalities of Eastern and Western Europe and a sublime story about twisted love.

Red” is about fraternity, which it examines by showing characters whose lives gradually become closely interconnected, with bonds forming between two characters who appear to have little in common – Irène Jacob starring as a runway model in Geneva and a retired judge, played by Jean‑Louis Trintignant. Red is an intimate look at forged connections.
