Kenilworth

Film

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.

Since the Film Group restarted in August 2016 we have watched and (mostly) enjoyed
