Award-winning film showing at library

The Jamestown Community Chorus will sponsor a free showing of the award-winning 2000 film “Topsy Turvy” at the Jamestown Philomenian Library on Sunday, Feb. 27, at 2 p.m. “Topsy Turvy” is a British production starring Alan Corduner as Sir Arthur Sullivan and Jim Broadbent as W.S. Gilbert.

The film opens with the pair receiving poor reviews of their production, “Princess Ida,” and is ready to quit on their collaboration. With some encouragement to try again, they eventually resume work together on “The Mikado,” which proves a resounding success.

The movie received two Oscar Awards and numerous other international film awards, including five for Best Film, three for Best Actor (Broadbent) and one for Best Director (Mike Leigh).

It runs 160 minutes and is rated R. Admission is free. Refreshments will be on sale.

The chorus will also present two performances of “The Pirates of Penzance” on Saturday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, March 6, at 3 p.m. Both performances will be held at the Central Baptist Church.

For more information, call 423- 1574.
