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.

Old Library Film Club – Summer 2018 Brochure >>

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” and for the Summer series, it’s Tarantino season!!

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.

 

SUMMER THEME: TARANTINO TIME!

In 1992 a young video store clerk with a handful of screenplays and a producer friend who knew Harvey Keitel exploded onto the film scene with a violent, funny cinephile’s B-movie called Reservoir Dogs. Both ultra-realistic with its protagonist bleeding to death in real time and hyper- real with its theatrical setting and colour coded villains – ‘Why am I Mr Pink!’ – it was a debut that promised much. His next movie, Pulp Fiction was a post-modern tour-de-force, endlessly quotable and hugely influential. Sandwiched between these stellar efforts was a Tony Scott movie called True Romance based on a screenplay by Tarantino. One hell of a hat-trick.
