The Old Library Film Club

Your chance to catch great movies in a unique setting of the Old Library, Eastville! Bring your own drinks, snacks, cushion (chairs are available!) and friends and settle back and enjoy our varied selection of films.

See the Film Club Brochure – Autumn 2018 >>

The club will run on the final Friday of the month.

Doors will open at 7pm and we will start the movie at 7.45pm. Themes will run in groups of three. We’ve had Conspiracy Thrillers, “Wanna be in My Gang”, Tarantino season and for Autumn 2018, it’s back to the 50s!

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.



It is easy to forget that great movies were being made long before some of us were born. Hitchcock was in his pomp producing tense thrillers like North by Northwest, James Dean was brooding and intense in Rebel Without a Cause and Marlon Brando ‘shoulda been a contender’ in On The Waterfront.

With less in the way of Special Effects the filmmakers had to create tension through great storytelling and powerful characters. The three films featured in this season all qualify on these grounds and are well worth the investment of your time.
