The CIV (International School) in Sophia-Antipolis relays plays from the National Theatre in London in the spacious cinema attached to the school.
Also, starting this year, the cinema in Valbonne has begun to do the same.
Jan arranges outings and carpooling if required.
Ticket prices are as for the CIV operas. Membership cards cover both cinemas. As these are not commercial cinemas you pay directly at the door &bndash; no reservations.
Jan also gives information on the more cultural VO English films in the local cinemas. If you wish to join the theatre and cinema goers, email Jan to receive regular updates.
The next London theatre transmission will be on Tuesday 23 January at 19.30: Young Marx, staring Roy Kinnear. This is a comedy from the team who produced the very successful One Man, Two Guvnors.
