We will be looking at films both old and new, classics and little known ones. Over time we will set themes for the year e.g. specific directors, film studios, different genres of movies e.g. action, science fiction, comedy, drama, etc.
We will be going to local places where films are shown e.g Empire Cinema in Wycombe, Norden Farm, etc as well as watching DVD’s in the convenor’s home. We will meet monthly on the third Thursday of each month.
