Outings to films have been arranged for the first Tuesday of each alternate month. Commonly we have attended 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.

Later in 2021, the Club film outings may move to the intimate Rapallo Cinema, 337A Napier Street, Strathmore. For information about this private cinema, please click here.

After the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic closure, film outings began May 2021. Several members saw Antoinette dans les Cévennes. Antoinette, a school teacher, is looking forward to her long planned summer holidays with her secret lover Vladimir, the father of one of her pupils. Click on the poster for more information.

Beautiful Day

Bombshell

The last Film outing for 2020 was in February. 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.

Here is some information about film outings in 2019.

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.
