The Manchester and Salford Film Society is a film society created in 1930 with an aim of showing engaging, interesting and challenging films from many periods and countries.

Jour de fête by Jacques Tati will be screened on 29 June. The director plays a rural postman who sets out to emulate the technology and speed of the American postal system. Eventually tradition and progress clash, heralding perhaps an early warning on the perils of globalisation.

The theatre has excellent bar facilities so the viewers can socialise before and after the film.

Jour de fête de Jacques Tati, France, 1949, 70 mins
