Dir: Vincente Minnelli
Starring: Leslie Caron, Maurice Chevalier

Weary of the conventions of Parisian society, a rich playboy and a youthful courtesan-in-training enjoy a platonic friendship, but it may not stay platonic for long. Gaston, the scion of a wealthy Parisian family finds emotional refuge from the superficial lifestyle of upper class Parisian 1900s society with the former mistress of his uncle and her outgoing, tomboy granddaughter, Gigi. When Gaston becomes aware that Gigi has matured into a woman, her grandmother and aunt, who have educated Gigi to be a wealthy man’s mistress, urge the pair to act out their roles but love adds a surprise twist to this delightful turn-of-the 20th century Cinderella story.

The Screening on Tue 14 April at 2.30pm is a Dementia-Friendly screening. Dementia-Friendly screenings are open to all and offer people living with dementia, including young onset dementia, the chance to enjoy a classic film in a relaxed and supportive environment. Our Dementia-Friendly screenings are proudly sponsored by Wilson Browne Solicitors.
