My Beautiful Laundrette (certificate 15)  is a 1985 British comedy-drama film directed by Stephen Frears from a screenplay by Hanif Kureishi. The story is set in London during the contemporary era, as reflected in the complex—and often comical—relationships between members of the Pakistani and English communities. The story focuses on Omar, played by Gordon Warnecke, a young Pakistani man living in London, and his reunion and eventual romance with his old friend, a street punk named Johnny, played by Daniel Day-Lewis. The two become the caretakers and business managers of a launderette originally owned by Omar's uncle Nasser. It will be shown at Threlkeld Village Hall on Friday 21st September at 7:30pm. Bar and Box Office from 7pm. Tickets £4 (£2 under 18s), pay on the door.
