Hi all Film Society members and friends
Hope you all had a not-too-hectic festive season. The next film society screening will be this coming Saturday, 9th January, at 7.00pm – the acclaimed Disney/Pixar animated feature Inside Out (PG-rated, 91minutes) written and directed by Pete Docter (Up, Toy Story, Toy Story 2 and Wall-E) about a young girl, Riley, who is uprooted from her mid-west home to a new life in San Francisco and the conflict caused by her ‘animated’ emotions (Joy, Fear, Anger, Sadness and Disgust) in dealing with her new home, school and city. A great film for adults and children – don’t forget that children under 16 are admitted free to the screening if accompanied by a current film society member, so bring the kids/grandkids.
Hot food and snacks will be available from 6.00pm, but don’t leave it too late in case we run out.
Upcoming films for February are the revisionist western Silverado (PG 128 minutes) with Kevin Kline, Kevin Costner and Danny Glover on Thursday 11th at 7.30pm, and Chinese film The Nightingale (G 120 min) on Saturday 13th February at 7.00pm.
I will be finalising the next six-month screening calendar shortly so please let me know if you have any potential films for the list by Saturday. Current films on the list include Last Cab to Darwin; The Martian; Women He’s Undressed; Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources; Bridge of Spies; Sicario; Macbeth (Michael Fassbinder); Chicago; Birdman; and The Hundred-Foot Journey.
Finally, don’t forget the Hall’s Gala Fair will be held on the first Saturday in February (6th) from 10.00am to 3.00pm – lots of great food and drinks, stalls and activities. Donations for the Hall stall (cakes, biscuits, books, non-electrical bric-a-brac, plants and produce) greatly appreciated – bring the donation along to the Hall on the Thursday or Friday (4th and 5th) between 9am and 5pm.
