Our programme : January to June 2019

Looking at the kitchen sink films, based on books or plays of the 1960s has been a real treat. This next tranche is going to continue with 1960s film but with a tighter focus: location shooting in London and often the more unfamiliar parts. This was in fact kicked off with our last film of this year: The L-Shaped Room.
 
We have moved to two films a month due to popular demand! When there is a Bank Holiday it doesn’t always work out but we may slot in some extras nearer the time. This time I will be sharing the load with my husband, Ian Christie.

The Films Group operates a booking system. Bookings normally open two weeks before the screening. In order to operate a system that is fair to all members of the Group, no applications before the booking opening date will be accepted.
