THE VITO PROJECT 

The Women  

Wednesday 29th March 2017 at 7.00pm

Café-bar opens at 6.00pm ★ Free! ★ Donations encouraged

@ The CINEMA MUSEUM

2 Dugard Way, Renfrew Road, London SE11, (10 minutes walk from Elephant and Castle


The VITO Project is delighted to present The Women, 1939 American comedy-drama film directed by George Cukor based on Clare Boothe Luce's play of the same name. The film stars Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, Lucile Watson, Mary Boland, Florence Nash, and Virginia Grey, as well as Marjorie Main and Phyllis Povah.

"The Women is the story of nice girl Mary Haines (played by Norma Shearer), sporty and straightforward, who loses her husband to shop-girl vamp Crystal Allen, a red-lipped, black-eyed Joan Crawford. Swimming around the disaster like sharks around a shipwreck are Mary's friends; a group of women with nothing to do except eat lunch and get their nails painted Jungle Red in Sydney's Beauty Parlour"- Jeanette Winterson


The screening will be followed by an open discussion, with Neil Bartlettplaywright and director. Sean McGovern, film programmer and podcaster, will be our MC for the evening.

This is a free event but we need your donations on the night to ensure the continuation of the VITO project. All donations go towards covering the costs associated with running the event (film licences, heating and lighting, rental of the premises, printing, promotion etc). Donations are VITO's only source of funding and we need to raise an average of £5 per person just to cover our costs. So PLEASE DIG DEEP and give us a paper donation if you are able to.


Doors to the cafe/bar will open at 6pm for a 7pm screening. Come early to secure a seat as it can get very busy and we do not take bookings. 
The doors to the Cinema will be shut once capacity is reached.

Venue accessibility: Level access on the ground floor. Level access on the first floor except for a slight slope at the doors into the main hall where people exit the lift. There is a lift used by disabled /non-disabled visitors and volunteers. There is an accessible toilet with step free access on the ground floor. It is large enough for a motorised wheelchair. It has an easy lock and handrails. 


The project is endorsed by BFI Flare: London LGBT film festival, 56 Dean St, QX Magazine, Gay’s the Word, ACT UP London, Gay Mates, a Change of Scene, the Cara Trust, I-Base, UK-CAB, Positively UK, Gaydio, NAZ Project, Frank Byrne & his walkers  and Broad Appeal Podcast.
