Cinema Studies

Group Leader:Yvette Mills
Contact:Please use Members Portal on Beacon
Date of Meeting:3rd Monday of the month
Time:10.30am
Area of Venue:Carlisle (west)

What we do:

The Group’s principal aim is to enhance each member’s enjoyment of contemporary cinema by sharing it with others.

We endeavour to see two films each month, usually ones that have been recently released.

Consideration of the films seen then forms the basis of discussion-based monthly meetings. The Members then rate the films on a scale of one to five.

We aim to have around 20 in our Group, however, currently there are SEVERAL VACANCIES FOR NEW MEMBERS.

At the end of each year, in a more social setting, we nominate our OSCAR or BAFTA awards in our own ‘U3AFTAs’

The Group does not have a recognised teacher. There are no ‘experts’ but, through a relaxed group cohesion, individual members demonstrate particular insights and knowledge.

Learning is fun! Such is the standard monthly meeting but, in addition, we have the occasional visiting speaker to the group
