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.
The club will run on the final Friday of the month. In the Autumn that will be September, October, November; in the Winter it will be January, February and March and in Summer it will be May, June and July. Doors will open at 7pm and we will start the movie at 7.45pm. Themes will run in groups of three. As you will see in this leaflet our debut theme is 1970’s conspiracy thrillers. 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.
WINTER/SPRING THEME: YOU WANNA BE IN MY GANG?!
A sense of belonging is a central theme in many of the most exciting cinematic adventures we have been served up since the day Marlon Brando was asked ‘what are you rebelling against?’ His reply, ‘whaddya got?’ captured an insouciance and bravado we all sometimes hanker after.
When the 50’s gang the Wanderers are trapped by the Fordham Baldies we all cheer when they are rescued by a big bad ass Italian who just wants to make some new friends. We root for Josey Wales (despite him being a southerner) because we relate to his sense of injustice and mistreatment.
In this series of movies we have a multiplicity of gangs vying for our affections. Sit back and enjoy the ride, it might get noisy!
