This Friday evening (April 21) will be busy.
First off will be a viewing of trailers from the short-listed films for our final show (May 26). The choice is between:
- A United Kingdom
- Love and Friendship
- My Old Lady
Members will then be asked to vote for the film of their choice.
Further details of these films can be found at imdb.com
Finally we will screen the delightful Indian film, The Crow’s Egg. It depicts life in the slums of Chennai and stars two local child actors. We think that it is very likely that you’ll be moved by this film!
Doors open at 7pm, trailers start at 7.30pm.
Hope to see you there.
This coming Friday is of course March 24th!
Please accept our apologies for the error in the earlier message
This coming Friday ( March 15th) we are showing Brooklyn, an intriguing throwback to the 50s. It will be interesting to compare attitudes to U.S. immigration then with how they may be now.
One definite change here is the way members will now sign in for film shows. Like Waitrose we’ll be going for self-checking. Lists have been prepared according to your last name and you will simply be required to tick a box to confirm your attendance. Unlike members, visitors will still need to speak to the Front of House person, though, in order to make their payment. We hope that this arrangement will speed up the process and also enable the committee to get on with their other work. We’ll see!
Doors open at 7.00pm, show starts at 7.30pm
Just confirming that Brooklyn is now being shown on Friday 24th March.
More details nearer the time.
Hope you can contain your excitement!
The date for our re-arranged showing of Brooklyn should be Friday March 24 not March 18.
Well not really.
Tangerines is a highly regarded film about the conflict in Georgia after the break up of the Soviet Union. If you’d like to know more about the background to the conflict we suggest that you read the green programme notes that have been issued to all members. The film is being shown this Friday at Wadham School.
Hopefully all members have received an apology from the school for a change of date to our programme. Brooklyn will now be shown on Friday March 18.
Finally we would like to thank everyone who came to our Spanish afternoon last week. We beat our target of 50 attenders and judging by the comments received it went down well. We will be looking at a different country next year and will be announcing the date with our regular programme in May so that members can plan ahead.
Hope to see you on Friday – doors open at 7pm, show starts at 7.30pm.
Sunday 29th January is the date of the 3rd International Day at Wadham School.
Doors will open at 1.30pm
At 2pm we will be showing Spirit of the Beehive. This critically acclaimed 1973 Spanish classic is about the ruinous legacy of the Civil War shown through the eyes of an imaginative child.
There will be complimentary Spanish food and good old English tea at the end of the film (approx 3.45pm) We’ll also be providing a Spanish quiz during the interval.
Then at around 4.10pm we’ll be showing Like Water for Chocolate – a quirky love story from Mexico about love, family and food – a feast for the senses. We expect the event to end at approximately 6.00pm with the presentation of the prize to the quiz winner.
Film notes to both films will be provided free of charge and the films will have sub-titles.
Tickets are a mere £8 per person and are currently on sale at the Community Office in the Town Hall or at Crewkerne News in Falkland Square.
We hope you’ll be able to come and also encourage your friends to attend this special event.
