Film Club launched with great success

August 7, 2011

The North West Theatre Company successfully launched their six month 2011 season  recently, with 23 members enjoying a screening of “the worlds greatest –ever movie” Citizen Kane”, the best-ever cartoon, “Rabbit of Seville” and a short documentary on iconic beach Bondi.  Members  then enjoyed supper, and a movie quiz on Citizen Kane, in the Roxy Café.

The club will be screening a carefully selected program of varied film on the last Sunday of each month and membership will remain open during this time for those wishing to join. Membership will vary according to the remaining length of the season – for instance,  membership taken out before the next screening on  Sunday 28th August is $55 for the remaining five months.

The club, through its membership of the NSW Federation of Film Societies, must operate on a strict membership subscription basis to qualify for reduced hiring and other charges.

It is a great deal, with membership including an introductory talk about the films, a movie quiz, and supper. The remaining five month season also included three “double headers” featuring two films.

This month’s screening offers a real treat – a French night with two classics set in that country.“Amelie”  set Audrey Tatou on the path to stardom, while “Chocolat”, starring Juliette Binoche, Ralph Fiennes, William Dafoe and Kristin Scott Thomas, is a timeless classic nominated for five Academy Awards.  Both are real “feel good” movies.

The season continues with “ The Lives of Others” (September) , “Singing in the Rain” and “Nine”(October), “Babies” and “Bringing up Baby (November) and “Cinderella Man” (December).

Taking out membership is simple – application forms are available at Bingara Information Centre, or by phoning John Wearne (0418-419684) or Ros Moulton (67241613).
