Film Club’s latest program


From the committee…
It is with regret that we bid farewell to two long-standing committee members, Rebeckah Gilbert and Nick Roberts. We thank them for all their hard work not only on Film Club nights but at planning meetings throughout the year. We also wish to welcome two new committee members, Sarah Heenan and Henry Tragett, both of whom bring fresh energies to the Film Club.

We would also like to point out that the Film Club needs members to attend on a regular basis because if attendances fall below a certain level we would again be faced with closure, so please come if you can to support your Film Club and don’t forget you can bring as many guests as you wish.

Friday April 7 – Easter Parade (1948 – 107 minutes)

For our Eastertime special offering what could be more appropriate than Easter Parade, a true classic MGM musical with the wonderful Fred Astaire and Judy Garland? I won’t spoil the story by revealing the plot but suffice to say you can be sure it will have a happy ending. Come and enjoy it on the big screen in Technicolor with full surround sound, and rumour has it that there just might be a free hot cross bun or two knocking around! (7pm start, doors 6.30pm.)

Friday May 5 – The Carer (2016 –89 minutes)

Dorottya (Coco Koenig) is a young Hungarian actress with a burning desire to make it on the English stage. Legendary actor Sir Michael Gifford (Brian Cox) suffers from an incurable disease and has one desire – to be left alone. When she becomes his carer they both hope their wish will be fulfilled. He is sorry for himself and grumpy and she is stubborn and more than a match for him. Sparks fly as their relationship progresses, fuelled by quarrels and their joint love of Shakespeare until surprisingly they find each other to be an inspiration. Also starring Anna Chancellor, Emilia Fox and Sir Roger Moore. (7pm start, 6.30pm doors.)

Friday June 2 – La La Land (2016 – 128 minutes)

Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress serves lattes to movie stars in between her auditions, whilst Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a jazz musician, scrapes a living playing dingy cocktail bars. But, as they start to taste success they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair and the dreams they worked so hard to achieve threaten to rip them apart. Can true love prevail? (7pm start, doors 6.30pm.)
