This is a new group for those who enjoy going to the cinema, watching films, and talking about them with friends.
Adrian Wright and Gill Jones will coordinate the group.
We will meet once a month, usually at Northern Lights, and at each meeting we will choose which film we want to watch the following month. Northern Lights stays open until 11pm to serve drinks, and we think this will a congenial space in which to hold our discussions. You do not have to be a film buff or have an extensive knowledge of film in order to join.
Our first meeting will be on Tuesday 10th March to watch 'The Man who Killed Don Quixote' by Terry Gilliam. Members should book their own tickets.
Several films have been made based on the Spanish writer Cervantes' novel published in in 1604: one by the Russian, Kuznetsov and one by the German Pabst. More recent versions have been plagued by problems: Orson Welles didn't finish his and Gilliam's first attempt was called off in 2003. Both of these attempts are available on DVD, and Cervantes' novel is still in print.
We look forward to seeing you there.
