Beers, Beanbags and Ping Pong
Last night we geared up for our final movie night with pizza, popcorn and a drink that unfortunately did not begin with ‘p’ in hand, but a film that did; Ping Pong. BRITDOC’s documentary follows the over 80’s Table Tennis World Championship competitors in their table tennis journey. Anson Hartford, the film’s producer, informed us of the film’s origins, starting with a picture, leading to a short film and finally leading to Ping Pong the feature length.
As we sunk into our beanbags and sipped our beer, I think we were all surprised at these incredible people’s lives; my favourite was Les and his weightlifting at 89! We saw our cinema off with a bang last night, but there are still loads more events going on until the shop closes on Sunday. Go to JL Open House for more details. We will definitely be sad to see it go.
