JAPAN - ONSCREEN AND OFF
Friday 10 December
6.30pm for 7.00pm screening
In partnership with the Bath & Beppu Friendship Association and the British Film Institute’s ‘Japan 2021’, WSC hosts ‘Japan OnScreen and Off’, a celebration of Japanese cinema, food, drink and fashion! Alongside these two remarkable films there will be Japanese cuisine and drinks on offer and special treats, including a raffle with Japanese-themed prizes!
Two fantastic films form the centrepiece of the evening –
SWEET BEAN (Naomi Kawase, 2015, PG), a heart-warming Tokyo-set story about struggling doryaki (sweet bean pancake) kiosk owner Sentaro who initially can’t be bothered to help the ageing Tokue who turns up asking for a job. He rebuffs her, but when she returns with doryakis prepared to her own special recipe, Sentaro doesn’t hesitate to take her on, leading to his realisation that life’s small pleasures count for much.
Followed by PATEMA INVERTED (Yasuhiro Yoshiura, 2013, PG), a stunning animated (‘anime’) film in which a young girl Patema, inexplicably confined to a gloomy underground world, discovers the astounding secret behind the surface and subterranean communities – the legacy of a scientific experiment gone wrong.
Buy tickets online HERE - single tickets for either film -
£6.00 or £4.50 WSC Members

‘Japan OnScreen and Off’ is screening as part of Japan 2021: Over 100 years of Japanese Cinema, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. bfijapan.co.uk

Widcombe Social Club is a non-profit community focused venue catering classes and events for both local and regional groups. We are a registered charitable organisation and host various community events throughout the year - we also work in partnership with local charities to provide a space from which to plan, network, and fund-raise for their causes.
The WSC has been an important part of the area's heritage since it's inception in 1899 - originally found at 25 Claverton Buildings on Widcombe's high-street as the 'Widcombe Workmen’s Club', it officially became 'Widcombe Social Club' after moving to its new and current premises in 1970.
After a multi-million pound redevelopment deal was completed in 2012, the face of the Social Club (and with it Widcombe Hill) was changed forever - re-opening in 2016, the 'New Club' is a light and modern venue which still holds true to its historic roots, retaining its membership system in a more inclusive form and acting as a hub for community-ran events and providing entertainment with local audiences in mind.

Yes, we are a dog friendly venue!
