Tea Time Talkies | Rebel Without a Cause
Gather your chums and join us for Tea Time Talkies at The Roxy - a relaxed, indulgent Sunday afternoon with a classic movie and delicious Devonshire Tea!*
On Sunday 16th May we’ll be screening American film drama ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ (1955), a classic tale of teenage rebellion and angst. After moving to a new town, troublemaking teen Jim Stark (James Dean) is supposed to have a clean slate, although being the new kid in town brings its own problems. While searching for some stability, Stark forms a bond with a disturbed classmate, Plato (Sal Mineo), and falls for local girl Judy (Natalie Wood). However, Judy is the girlfriend of neighborhood tough, Buzz (Corey Allen). When Buzz violently confronts Jim and challenges him to a drag race, the new kid's real troubles begin. The movie features James Dean in one of his final roles. Because he died in a car crash a month before the movie opened, his performance took on an eerie kind of fame: It was the posthumous complaint of an actor widely expected to have a long and famous career.
The film screening will consist of a 30 minute intermission where a delicious Devonshire Tea* awaits (a cup of tea and traditional homemade scone with cream and jam).
