We watch a film chosen by members of the group and then follow this with a discussion about the merits, or otherwise, of what we have seen. We cover a wide variety of genres - Classic British Cinema, Film Noir, Foreign Language Films etc - with the emphasis on enjoying a good film in good company!
IMPORTANT NEWS - From January 2019 the KU3A film group has moved to the Kenilworth Centre (across the car park behind the Post Office), from 2 to 5pm on the second Wednesday of each month, and hopes to attract a wider membership for film screenings there followed by a brief discussion. With a view both to attracting interest from other U3A groups and to filling the gap left by the temporary closure of the cinema at Warwick Arts Centre, there will be an initial focus on foreign language films (always subtitled in English)
Please note: as we will have to pay for room hire at the Kenilworth Centre we will need to collect £3 per person per film as a contribution to cover this expenditure.

July Screening (10th July)
The July screening by the Film Group will take place at the Kenilworth Centre (across the car park behind Oxfam) at 2pm on Wednesday 10th July 2019. 'Like Father, Like Son' is a Japanese film, written and directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda, that won the Jury Prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Six years into bringing up their only child, and unable to have more children, Ryota and Midori learn that their son was switched at birth with another boy who has grown up in very different circumstances. There must now be a life-changing decision whether or not to switch the children back...... The film is two hours long and those attending can choose whether to stay on for a brief discussion afterwards. The group requests a contribution of £3 per person towards room hire.
Please note that there will be no Film Group meeting in August
The September meeting will be on Wednesday 11th September - film to be advised shortly
