May 2011 newsletter

We have been deliberating since February on what to put into next year’s programme. At present we almost have a complete picture of what films we would like screen and of the speakers we would like to invite to introduce some of them. We can usually get most of them from the various distributors.

On Thursday (26th May) you are invited to hear what our current thinking is and to tell us what you think! This little meeting will take place at 7.30 pm in the Lecture Theatre at the College, in other words in the room where we show nearly all our films. All members are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.

This is our annual summer event, designed to be convivial as well as cultural. Details:
