WESTBURY Alley Film Club has one last film to show this year.

On Wednesday 20th December, settle down to watch Whisky Galore (PG) – Whisky Galore is a 2016 British film, a remake of the 1949 Ealing comedy of the same name. It was directed by Gillies Mackinnon and stars Gregor Fisher and Eddie Izzard. Set in the Second World War when whisky rationing is in effect, Scottish islanders on the Isle of Todday, try to plunder cases of Whisky from a ship that is stranded on rocks just offshore. The SS Cabinet Minister was carrying 50,000 cases of Scotch whisky to America when she ran aground, affording the islanders the opportunity to get their hands on the ‘water of life’. There are two problems though; the local minister will not allow work to take place on a Sunday and Captain Waggett, the Home Guard officer who wants to stop any looting and who also searches for the whisky in the islanders’ home afterwards.

The club shows films on the third Wednesday of each month at The Horse and Groom on Edward Street, at 8pm.
