Films

Outings to films have been arranged for the first Tuesday of each alternate month. Commonly we have attended the Nova Cinema, Carlton; the Kino Palace Cinema, Melbourne; or Palace Cinemas at Pentridge, Coburg. Members often stay to enjoy luncheon together to discuss the film. Films are commonly chosen by popular vote at the preceding normal Club meeting.

The last film outing was in November to the Pentridge (Palace) Cinemas, Coburg. Quite a few members attended for a screening of Mrs Harris goes to Paris. Please click image at left for details of the film.

The next film outing will be on Tuesday 7th February 2023.
