2011

Poor attendance again

Today’s attendance for Seven Brides for Seven Brothers was again poor, especially as we screened this film following requests for some of the older classics.

Because recent attendance at the Film Club has not been very good we shall need to consider in the New Year whether in fact we can afford to continue to run the Club.

The next film show will be Tuesday 24th January 2012 when we will be showing
Tamara-Drewe starring Gemma Arterton. The film starts at 2pm and doors open at 1.30pm. Admission £2.50 and refreshments are available.

Films are shown at the Parish Hall on the 4th Tuesday of each month please support us if you can. We have a number of recent releases lined up for 2012 but we do need your support.

Disappointing attendance

We screened ‘Up’ today thinking that it would be ideal for the children on half-term, but unfortunately only one child turned up and there were very few people in total - somewhat disappointing.

Next month we’re screening
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and are hoping that our adult audience will appreciate a trip back to the days of the great Hollywood musicals.

There will be no film in December because of the Christmas holiday.

November's film

Thank you to those who came along to see Water for Elephants. I think everybody enjoyed it.

Our October film is ‘
Up’ and we are hoping that both children and adults will come along to see it.

For November we have chosen
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, taking us back to the hay days of the Hollywood musicals. You may have seen it many years ago but we’re sure that you will find it just as entertaining as it was when it was first made in 1954. As they say, they don’t make films like that any more.

October's film

As it will be half-term on 25 October we’ve selected Walt Disney’s film ‘Up’.

This will appeal to the children but it is also a heartwarming story that will be equally appreciated by the adults in the audience.

Please come along.

Film Update

September’s film is to be Water for Elephants with Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.

A love story in the good old Hollywood tradition and one not to miss.

Come and join us on 27 September.

Film update

We hope everybody enjoyed ‘The Queen’ yesterday.

Next month’s film is
Gnomeo & Juliet, one for both the children and the adults.

In August we’re showing
Ladies in Lavender, a tender story set in Cornwall during the lead up to the second world war.

July’s quiz has also been added for the film trivia buffs.

Film progamme updated

We had a really good attendance for ‘Made in Dagenham’ on 26th April.

Thank you for your support. Everybody seemed to enjoy it.

This month it’s
The King’s Speech, and for June, sticking with the royal theme, we are showing The Queen with Helen Mirren.

For July we’re thinking of showing
Gnomeo and Juliet as the children will be on school holidays.

Future films

We would very much hope that you will contact us to give feedback and opinions on the films we show. We speak to people who attend the screenings but would welcome further comments via this site.

In the interests of satisfying people’s tastes the
Films page has been revised slightly. It now shows a firm date for only the forthcoming month, or occasionally the next two months, after which we list films provisionally to allow some flexibility to incorporate additional films that may be recommended, or requested.

Quiz page revised

I have revised the quiz page slightly in order to allow you to view not only the current month’s quiz but also previous months, thus providing a library of film trivia.
