What we do

We will aim to show films that are excellent of their kind, be that comedy, drama, thriller or anything else. Any U3A member will be welcome: turn up on the day, or contact Mark Miller first if you prefer. We hope to develop a core membership of regular attenders, as well as attracting those who come along more occasionally.


August 2018

The start of the programme has unfortunately been delayed: the first film will be shown on 1 November.

This will be Flying Down to Rio, the first film in which Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers danced together. A very light comedy, to get us off to a cheerful start.

On 6 December the film will be Babette’s Feast – Oscar winner for best foreign-language film of 1987. A serious comedy, perfectly made in every respect, and including a magnificent feast – which seems appropriate as Christmas will be approaching.
