Bend it Like Beckham – Cinema Nights at Leith Theatre

Wed 18 September @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

- £5.50

For the first of our special Scalarama Edinburgh editions of Cinema Nights at Leith Theatre, Reel Girl Film Club are teaming up with Cinetopia and Leith Theatre for a screening of the British classic, Bend It Like Beckham, inspired by this year’s Women’s World Cup!

This coming-of-age romantic comedy follows the life of young Jess, the daughter of a Punjabi Sikh family living in London, as she tries to pursue her passion for playing football in the face of her family’s disapproval. Written and directed by filmmaker Gurinder Chadha, this semi autobiographical film sheds a light on the themes of tradition, family, culture, racism, sexuality, and the role of women.

We are also delighted to have Punjabi Junction joining us with some Punjabi food available to purchase!
