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.
The next meeting of the Group will be on Friday 20th September, and will be at our usual venue - group members' Tim and George Carter’s home near Boston Manor station. I will remind group members before each meeting and confirm the venue details.
We have now had group viewings of two films 'Rashomon' directed by Akira Kurosawa and Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool, starring Annette Bening and Jamie Bell.
Our next group viewing will be on Thursday 5th September (following the first U3A talk of the Autumn term in the morning), starting at 2pm, once again at Tim/George's house in Hanwell. The film we plan to watch this time is Baby Driver - a 2017 action crime film written and directed by Edgar Wright (who also directed films like 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz'). Running time is 113 minutes and afterwards we will have a discussion about the film.
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.
