FILM GROUP

The Film
The film for the September meeting of our group will be ‘Operation Mincemeat’. It will have sub-titles.
Despite its odd name, this is a serious drama of a great deception by Britain and its allies aimed at convincing Hitler that our troops were about to occupy Greece when the real destination was Sicily.
The film stars Colin Firth, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Penelope Wilton, Johnny Flynn, and Jason Isaacs.
Running time 2 hours and 8 Minutes

Our meeting is on Monday 12th September at 2pm in the Methodist Hall.
Tea and coffee will be available before the film starts. There is time to chat before and after the film. If you can do so, I strongly recommend you bring a cushion with you to make seating a little more comfortable. The meeting will end around 4:30pm. The fee for this meeting will be £2.50.
If you have not joined the group previously then please contact me first to make sure seats are available.
