Outings to films are arranged on the first Tuesday of each alternate month. Commonly we attend the Nova Cinema, Carlton; however the Kino Palace Cinema, Melbourne, is an alternate venue. Members often stay to enjoy luncheon together to discuss the film. Films are commonly chosen by popular vote at the preceding normal Club meeting.

Beautiful Day

Bombshell

 

The last Film outing was in February 2020. Some went to see A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood and some to Bombshell. Both very enjoyable films, though very different. Most of the group stayed for Lunch at Brunettis.

Activities of the Probus Club of Melbourne North, including film outings, are currently cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Here is some information about film outings last year.

Green BookSometimesThe first Film Outing for 2019, was held in February. Our group went to see Green Book – an excellent film which, a week after our visit, was awarded the Oscar for Best Motion Picture of the Year.

In April, some members went to see Sometimes Always Never, starring Bill Nighy.

 

All is trueRocketman

In June, some members went to see All Is True, a film about Shakespeare’s life after the Globe Theatre burnt down in 1631. It was written by Ben Elton, with Kenneth Branagh directing and starring. Judi Dench and Ian McKellen also star. Others went to see Rocketman – the life story of Elton John.

Who Do You Think

 

In August, our group went to see Who Do You Think I Am, starring Juliette Binoche. She plays Claire, a 50-year-old divorced teacher, who creates a fake Facebook profile of a 24-year-old woman. She finds a photo of a pretty young brunette and uses it. She has created an entirely fictional character, and the reasons (and the difference between truth and reality) are intriguing.

Downton

Farewell

 

In October 2019, some members went to see Downton Abbey, while others saw The Farewell. Some members stayed on to have lunch at Trotters.
