New Year’s greetings from FilmCrew

We hope that everyone had a good break and that you’re looking forward to our next offering this Friday (January 12).

I Daniel Blake is Ken Loach’s  latest film.  Fifty years since he shocked the nation with his TV play about homelessness, Cathy Come Home, he now gives his view of our benefits system. It won the Palme D’Or at the Cannes film festival.

The doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.

We also have a special event later in the month. On Sunday 28th January we have our 4th International Film Day – this time it’s Germany. We start promptly at 2pm (doors open 1.30pm) with Goodbye Lenin, a hilarious take on the impact on East Berliners of the Wall coming down. There will then be short break for tasty German refreshments – and a picture quiz with a mystery prize. The afternoon will conclude with the film Run Lola Run, a fast-paced thriller about a young woman’s desperate attempt to save her lover.    The event should finish shortly after 6pm.  The cost for the afternoon is £8 (or 10€ ) per person.  Tickets can be bought this Friday at our show or from the Town Hall prior to the event.

A musical worth mulling over

We are showing Les Parapluies de Cherbourg this Friday ( 8 Dec).                                        This classic French  romance (with sub-titles) stars the gorgeous Catherine Deneuve and the film is said to have a ‘vivid palette’.  We trust that the film will uplift you but if there’s any doubt maybe the accompanying complimentary glass of mulled wine will do the trick.

That evening we will also be selling tickets for our International Day on Sunday January 28th. This year it is Germany’s turn and we will be showing two feature films ( Goodbye Lenin and Run Lola Run) with German style refreshments in the interval. The event runs from 2pm until approximately 6pm and tickets cost £8. Please bring your payments (cash or cheque payable to FilmCrew) with you on Friday.

As a general point we would be very grateful for the correct amount of cash for any payment so that we can avoid too much of a delay when you arrive for a show.

Doors open at 7pm when refreshments will be served. Show starts at 7.30pm.

One of the most moving films you’ll ever see

The film this Friday (10th November) is set in Manchester By The Sea, Massachusetts. It recounts the life of a man who returns to the place he used to live in and we gradually discover the events that had caused him to leave.                 The main character is played by Casey Affleck and he received the Best Actor award at this year’s Oscars for his role.

It is no reflection on Affleck’s fine performance but rather the quick-fire naturalistic dialogue and local accents that influenced the committee’s decision to show sub-titles on this occasion. This is in response to a discussion we had with audience members at our 2015 AGM. You may wish to use the reaction slips to give us feedback on this issue – as well as leaving your usual insightful comments on the film itself.

Hope to see you at Wadham on Friday, doors open at 7pm – show starts at 7.30pm

The Olive Tree is being shown this Friday (13th October)

With Spain so much in the news we hope you’ll enjoy this gentle Spanish fable about the disappearance of an ancient olive tree and a grandfather’s quest to recover it.

Following comments from members the committee have decided to discontinue (after one attempt!) the showing of trailers for the following month’s film. We accepted the argument that the trailer could give away too much of the plot.

Could we please ask that you do not attempt to pay for anything with the old pound coins this Friday.  They will cease to be legal tender by the end of the weekend and we don’t have a bank branch nearby.

However we are still collecting the old plastic bottle tops and the old Waitrose tokens! One of our nominated charities, Purple Field Productions, is a beneficiary this month at Crewkerne’s Waitrose so please also put your tokens in their box if shopping there.

Hope to see you on Friday.  Doors open at 7pm – film starts at 7.30pm.
