Chico and Rita

On Monday February 14 at 8pm, staff at the non-profit making independent cinema are delighted to present the classic love story of Chico & Rita (15).

Following the 60-year musical and romantic tribulations of a Cuban jazz pianist and a beautiful singer, this animated film is a sensual treat with a fabulous soundtrack.

Chico follows Rita from the 1940s Havana jazz scene to the nightclubs of New York, and we see the twists and heartache of these star-crossed lovers.

Sky News film buff Elliot Noble said: “Simply drawn yet full of detail, the post-war streets of Havana, New York, Paris and Las Vegas offer a wealth of animated riches. And with jazz greats from Thelonius Monk and Dizzy Gillespie to Cole Porter and Tito Puente laying down licks on the soundtrack, there’s much aural enjoyment for aficionados and novices alike.”
