CLASSIC FILMS GROUP
Films shown in the past include: "Rashomon", a thought-provoking film by the Japanese director Akira Kurosawa; "Un Carnet de Bal", an entertaining tale about a widow who tracks down the men she might have married other than her deceased husband; "The Iron Horse", a silent film about the building of the rail link between America’s East and West coasts; the first Hollywood film to be shot on location, "My Darling Clementine", an early Western starring a very young Henry Fonda; "The Lives of Others", an Oscar-winning German film set in the former East Germany; and many others of great interest.
The group discusses various philosophical topics as chosen by members, occasionally focussing on a particular school or individual philosopher.
We are a group of people who love quizzing and we meet once a month. You come when you can, no fixed teams, randomly selected on the day which means we mix & make new friends learning a lot in the process. Our Question Masters are volunteers from the group who set the questions when they can fit it in to their busy schedules and we meet in a pub.
