Future themes are set to include Sci-Fi, Westerns, Teen movies etc,etc.

There will be no cover charge. Any donations to support the Old Library will be gratefully accepted.

Each film will be preceded by a brief introduction and there will be an opportunity to discuss it afterwards for those who enjoy a little film chat. We are happy to take suggestions for future themes and indeed any way in which we can make things stimulating and enjoyable. We would politely ask you to switch off your mobile phones during screenings and to be mindful of your fellow movie lovers.

 

DEBUT THEME: 1970’s Conspiracy Thrillers

 

The 1970’s were a time of paranoia and fear. The threat of nuclear warfare hung over us like the sword of Damocles, the hippies had run to the hills in the wake of Charlie Manson and Altamont, the US were fighting an unwinnable war in Vietnam and Watergate shocked the world.

In the world of Film the studio system had collapsed and the rebels with a cause had been given a camera and a budget. With Easy Rider emerging in 1969 the tone was set and filmmakers like Scorsese, Coppola, Pakula and Pollack were essaying movies that threw all our certainties into question.
