Flordon Film Club

Flordon Film Club

The Flordon Film Club finished the season with “THE POST”, starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. It was a cracking good movie with members leaving on a high – Steven Spielberg’s direction takes some beating doesn’t it? If you haven’t seen this film I highly recommend that you do so.

The new season starts on Wednesday 17 October, followed by the Christmas meeting on Wednesday 19 December. Members are currently making their choices of films and the club newsletter will be circulated shortly detailing them. If you are not a member but would like to be added to the mailing list with a view to coming along you would be most welcome; just send me your full name and email address.

The Film Club meets in the Community Hall at the church on the third Wednesday of the month 5 times per year. Annual membership is £5 per person and admission to each screening costs £5 per seat. We sell good wine cheaply plus chocolate etc. It’s a great opportunity to enjoy a bit of social intercourse before the film!

STOP PRESS!

I have just been informed by the distributor that Breathe is not released until February 26 which is after our film night! So what I have agreed to do is to swap it round with My cousin Rachael i.e. We will see that film next week and Breathe in April.

This is a bit tedious and I am sorry about it; but I hope that those who wish to see both films won’t mind them being swapped round. Naturally if anyone  who has booked to see Breathe wishes to cancel I would quite understand.

The release information on My cousin Rachel follows, and I think it promises to be a good film – quite a number of members voted for it.

 

Tickets are now on sale.  Just £5. PLEASE BOOK NOW by emailing me - and pay on the door.

It is that time of the year when membership subscriptions are due, unchanged at £5 per person for the whole year. For prospective members the advantages of membership include: getting advance notice of the list of films available, the opportunity to vote for which films we show, and members names go in the draw on film night for free admission at a future film night. Importantly the club needs this financial support in order to cover any shortfall in box takings, and to contribute to the cost of equipment, and subsidised events such as the Christmas film night. I hope that you will wish to join or renew your membership in which case please pay on the door when you next attend.

Please may I make a plea for someone to join me in running the club. The work none of which is onerous involves:

  • Maintaining the membership list
  • Sending out the newsletter and other email communications
  • Collating numbers for each film night
  • Accounts
  • Contact with distributers and Creative arts East:
    • ordering and returning films, making returns and royalty payments
  • Managing Food and Beverage supplies
  • Setting up and dismantling the equipment on the night
  • Taking money on the door
  • Selling refreshments

Thank you.

I look forward to seeing you on the 21st February and in the meantime I wish you a very happy and healthy New Year.
