This is your opportunity to take part in an activities group celebrating classic films of yesteryear.
Have you ever hankered to see your favourite Movie where it truly belongs back on a big screen then if you do come and join us.
It is the hope that this group will meet at least once a month and if it takes off maybe more sessions can be arranged.
So whether its a Comedy... Musical... Thriller... Historical... Romance or even Western just let us know….and we will relive the magic !!!
The group meets on the first Thursday of each month at St Editha's Church Hall in the centre of Tamworth between 1.45pm and 4.00pm. There is a monthly fee per person on those attending the session to cover the room hire only. Currently this is £2.00 per person and includes a complimentary Tea or Coffee.
If you have a request or a suggestion for a film to be shown in the future, contact the Film Studies Group Leader via the contact button on this web page or let us know at the regular all members monthly meeting. We also issue a Spring, Summer and Winter Programme. All requests for specific films to be shown will be considered subject to their availability and that they satisfy the current copyright licence held by the U3A Tamworth.
PLEASE NOTE THIS GROUP IS OPEN TO ALL TAMWORTH U3A MEMBERS WHO MAY WISH TO ATTEND EITHER ONE OR MORE OF THE SCREENINGS.
