Details

As a young orphan boy, Pip lives with Joe Gargery, the local blacksmith, and his shrewish wife. He’s not yet fourteen-years-old, at which point he will begin his apprenticeship as a blacksmith, so he lives a carefree life. He meets two people who will have a great impact on his future: an escaped convict from a prison ship destined to Australia, and Estella, a young girl who lives with Miss Havisham in a dusty falling down old mansion. After several years, Pip receives tremendous news: a secret benefactor has decided to fund his becoming a gentleman, and Pip promptly moves to London, where he shares rooms with Mr. Pocket and learns to become a man of great expectations, all on the two hundred fifty pounds per year he receives from his benefactor. He also becomes a snob however, something that shames him later on. As he learns the identity of his secret benefactor, he also learns the true meaning of joy and life.

The King’s Lynn Community Cinema Club is an independent, not-for-profit, organisation set up to cater for film enthusiasts in the area. We aim to show a varied programme of films which reflect the tastes and interests of our members.
