We were holding 'virtual' meetings using Zoom during the pandemic, but have now started meeting face-to-face again. Our next meeting will be on Friday 15th October starting at 10.30am, back at George & Tim's house in Hanwell.
I am also considering whether we should try to run a 'hybrid' meeting, with some members meeting at George & Tim's house whilst others join in over Zoom.
At these meetings each participant can talk about any films they have been to see either at the cinema (now these are re-open) or at home, ideally a maximum of 5 films each. Members may also want to mention any TV highlights they think may be of interest to other group members.
The aim of the group is to enjoy cinema-going and to discuss the films we have seen and increase our knowledge of film in general. We view and discuss films showing at cinemas/arts centres in the local area. We also discuss/recommend films that members have seen on TV or DVD.
At the end of each month all Film Group Members are sent a list of all films to be shown during the next month at Watermans Cinema in Brentford, with performance times, very brief story lines and short reviews if available. We then have a meeting on the third Friday morning of each month at 10.30am to discuss those films we have seen.
We also have an occasional group outing to view a film, then have a discussion about the film afterwards. Details of any forthcoming outings are shown in 'Dates for Your Diary' below.
