Foxlowe Films Summer Season gets off to a flying start this month with a showing of Jack Goes Boating, starring the late and great Philip Seymour Hoffman.

The summer film programme, for the community-led venue, has a mixture of exciting block buster releases, classics and other films selected for their unique approach to film making.

The 15 rated Jack Goes Boating, which will be screened on Tuesday, May 20, is a New York-set black comedy paying tribute to Phillip Seymour Hoffman who directs and stars as Jack, a shy and socially awkward limo driver whose married friends, Clyde and Lucy, set him up on a blind date with the equally shy Connie (Amy Ryan).

The two begin a tentative and gradual courtship that gives a whole new meaning to the word patience. But as Jack and Connie overcome their isolation and begin to open up to one another, the marriage of the friends who brought them together begins inexorably to fall apart.

Other films set to be screened by Foxlowe Films this summer include: Renoir, Muscle Shoals, 12 Years A Slave, The Invisible Woman, and Inside Llewyn Davis.

Each film night the licensed Foxlowe Bar will open at 7pm with hot drinks also available and the films start at 7.45pm. Admission is £5on the door. Advanced tickets can be bought from the Foxlowe Gallery, Over the Rainbow in Sheepmarket or online at www.foxloweartscentre.org.uk.
