We’ve now had confirmation from Wadham School of our dates for next season.

You can find the details on our website by clicking here.

First Man

Our first film is on Friday 13th September; a timely one, with the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landings coming this summer – ‘First Man’. The story of Neil Armstrong and the dramatic events leading up to this historic event, and how this quiet, dedicated but emotionally scarred man played such a central role.

If you haven’t re-joined for this season as yet, you can do so at the first screening (or any subsequent one).  Full year membership is £25 for 9 films.

Forms and brochures can be picked up from the Town Hall in Crewkerne.

 

Don’t forget you can also pay by bank transfer and simply email us your membership form.

We’re all going on a, summer holiday…

2Our 2018/19 season came to an end on Friday with the screening of the Members’ Choice selection ‘The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society‘.

Thank you to those members who stayed for the AGM, and congratulations to Brian for winning Rick’s fiendish end of season quiz.

End of season, our AGM and an opportunity to rejoin for next season…

1Friday 24th May sees our final screening of the season, our Members’ Choice which this year is ‘The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society‘ (2018) (12A).

Adapted from the best selling novel, the story is set in 1946; a London-based writer begins exchanging letters with residents on the island of Guernsey, which was German-occupied during WWII. Feeling compelled to visit the island, she starts to get a picture of what it was like during the occupation.

With an ensemble cast including Sir Tom Courtenay, Matthew Goode, Lily James, Jessica Brown Findlay & Penelope Wilton, the film was the resounding choice of members at our last screening.

Doors open at 7PM with the film starting promptly at 7:30. While you take to your seats and get a cup of tea & slice of cake, why not have a crack at our quiz covering all of this year’s films. The winner will be announced after the film.

It’ll be a busy night, with our Annual General Meeting taking place immediately after the film, over a free glass of wine. Please support the organisation by giving the committee your views on the past season.

We’ll aim to finish by 10:15 at the latest – after all, we’ll need to wash up and not keep the caretakers up all night!

BBFC insight: contains strong sex, sex references

Fri 5th April – Doors open at 19:00, with the film starting at 19:30. Please make your way to the auditorium, where you can sign in.

The film should finish around 21:30. The Committee will be carrying on the discussion after the film in The George Pub opposite the town hall.  If you’d like to join us, please come along; it’d be great to see you there.

Get in the mood for our screening with a short film about Bridport

As a precursor to the film, why not watch this short film available on BFI player for FREE.

Come with me to Bridport‘ is a 1951 short film, in which Richard Dimbleby props up a bar in Bridport and conducts some leisurely interviews with locals over a pint and a cigarette. He also visits tradesmen and craftspeople in surrounding villages, from sand merchant Mr Good, who uses shire horses to collect shingle from Chesil Bank, to Mrs Legge, a netmaker, known as a ‘braider’. As well as the appealing rural charm, there are plenty of unusual industrial processes on show – look out for the tennis-net making.

You can access the short film on the BFI player website by clicking here.

 

And finally, its your chance to decide our final film of the season – our Members’ Choice

Vote-Members-choice

An old man realises he is nearing the end of his life, and decides he wants to spend the time he has left in the holy city of Varanasi.
