The Film Group
The group is led by Alan Dymond who shows a variety of films, ranging from early Hitchcock, to more modern movies. The group manages an average attendance of 15 a year. Alan has a reasonable number of films still to be shown, and will be experimenting with a film from the internet. However, if any member of the group, or of the U3A, has any DVD's that we might borrow, they would be much appreciated. Please contact Alan on the number shown above.
