Passport to Pimlico at Averys Wine Merchants

What you'll do

DOORS: 18:45 | FILM STARTS 19:00

Vintage Screenings pair classic films with thematically linked wine tastings to create unique evenings in the stunning setting of Averys Wine Merchants’ historic wine cellar. Following a sparkling wine reception, the film will be accompanied by a tasting of four carefully selected wines courtesy of Averys’ resident experts.

After almost two years of postponement, Bristol Film Festival are delighted to at long last be screening the classic Ealing comedy Passport To Pimlico. Due to the importance of Burgundy in the plot, we’ll be tasting wines made from the two key grapes from the region: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Please note that Vintage Screenings are strictly for over-18s only

ABOUT THE FILM 1949 | PG | 84 mins

When an unexploded WWII bomb accidentally detonates, it unearths a cellar containing ancient proof that the London district of Pimlico is legally part of the Duchy of Burgundy – which makes it exempt from British law, including rationing and pub closing hours…!

About Bristol Film Festival

Bristol Film Festival was started by director Owen Franklin in 2015. The Festival provides an alternative experience for lovers of film and cinema, and celebrates the cultural landscape of his home city, Bristol.

The concept is simple: to bring classic films back to the big screen, in some of Bristol’s most iconic and interesting venues, including Bristol Museum, Clifton Observatory, Bristol Cathedral, and Redcliffe Caves.

The films and locations are carefully matched together, and involve unique immersive elements - whether it's live performers, tours of venues after hours, or themed wine tastings, you can expect to leave one of our events having had a film experience unlike any other!
