Thorpe Bay

Film Group

The ‘Film Group’ was formed in September 2017 and meet on the third Thursday monthly between 13:30 and 16:00. The prime objectives of the group are to watch and discuss films chosen by the group members. In addition to giving the group members an opportunity of talking about films that they have recently seen with other members of the group.

At each monthly meeting the film chosen at the previous meeting is shown. After each film showing the group discuss the film that they have just seen over some refreshments and decide on what film that they would like to watch at the next meeting. A rolling list of films that the group members have chosen is maintained so that the films to be shown can be selected. The list is continually being updated with new suggestions from the group members.

Many of the newer DVDs include an additional feature of the ‘Director’s Commentary’. If such a feature exists then the group members attending the meeting are asked if they are interested in hearing this extra insight into the making of the film. If there is enough interest then an additional meeting will be arranged for two weeks after the original film showing, for the film to be shown again but this time accompanied by the ‘Director’s Commentary’.

Please contact Jim O’Connor, the Group Leader, if you are interested in attending one of the group meetings.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
The next monthly Film Group meeting will be held on Thursday 20th June at 13:30 until 16:00 in ‘The Loft’ of the Shoeburyness & Thorpe Bay Baptist Church, when we are planning to watch the film ‘The Man Who Knew Too Much’ (120 Minutes), which is a 1956 American suspense thriller directed and produced by Alfred Hitchcock and starring James Stewart and Doris Day. In the film Doris Day sings ‘Que Sera, Sera’, which won an Academy Award for the Best Original Song.

We have chosen this film in memory of Doris Day who passed away earlier this month. Doris Day was undoubtedly an immensely talented film star who was able to sing, dance and act! For much of her film career she was one of the top box-office earners in the United States.

It should be an interesting film!

Hopefully you will be able to join us at the meeting on Thursday 20th June!
