Cinema & Film Club – No fixed day or date or time
Cinema Club. Co-ordinator P.C. This is a very flexible group. The idea is that if a member wishes to go to see a film at the cinema, then she posts the information: Name of film, Cinema, Day and Time. Then if any other members of the group wish to also go and see the film, they can go together. Much nicer than going on one’s own. If you are interested in joining, please apply on the facebook page.
More recently this group has adapted to the problems of the Covid-19 Pandemic by watching a specific film from home during self isolation, then coming together on Facebook to write their comments/reviews.
During this Covid-19 epidemic, this group has widened it's activities to watching films on the TV, using Netflix and BBC iPlayer, also accessing streaming live from YouTube to watch the British National Theatre .
Theatre Club – No fixed day or date or time
Theatre Club. Co-ordinator P.C. This is a very flexible group.
