SCREEN legends Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau star in The Odd Couple, a hilarious 1968 film about two friends trying to share their lives within one apartment. When the duo’s differing personalities and lifestyles prove as different as night and day, considerable strain is put on their friendship.
When neurotic Felix (Lemmon) separates from his wife, his pal Oscar (Matthau) offers him his apartment, fearing for his mental health. As it turns out, it’s Oscar’s own mental health that suffers as he withstands Felix’s fastidiousness and habits.
Directed by Gene Saks, this iconic comedic feature was an adaptation of Neil Simon’s successful Broadway stage-play. Simon himself adapted the screenplay for the film and would go on to adapt the show for a television spin-off as well.
The Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady is offering viewers the chance to see this wonderful film on the 26th April at 12pm. Tickets for the event are priced at £4 and can be purchased from the centre’s website directly.
