We kicked off the return from the summer break in style with Humphrey Bogart in one of his classic roles as Sam Spade in “The Maltese Falcon“, a film which Bogart himself said “It was practically a masterpiece. I don’t have many things I’m proud of but that’s one.” Poor Carl, our committee member who […]

Family Sunday Family Sunday continues with our tried and trusted mix of family oriented films. We’ve got some great films – including sequels to films we’ve already shown […]

“Well done, the best night out I’ve had in ages”. Thursday 9th February saw us showing the classic Film Noir from 1946 – The Big Sleep. We’d sold out of this quite a while in advance which was incredibly pleasing given that we thought we’d have an audience of about 30. Instead a massive 61 people sat and watched Humphrey […]
