THIRD WEDNESDAY IN THE MONTH. 13.30. DOORS 13.00. ADMISSION £5.00

Wed 16th June 13.30 starting with a 1971 US cop classic, the star is still making films today, “come on make your day” and watch at Lucem.

Wed 21st July 13.30. Another 5 star 1955 US classic, our hero “giving a masterclass in screen acting” visits a south west town to honour a promise he gave to a dead war colleague, it’s a town with secrets that they don’t want him to know about, what a cast!! It’s “a dream team” of all the hard men in movies, brilliant.

Wed 18th August 13.30. OK I know another US classic but…. something different, no apologies for yet again a 5 star rated film and a 5 time Oscar winner. Director Billy Wilder at his best in a 1960 film bringing the best out of his stellar cast, a bittersweet romantic drama, nothing sugar coated here.

Wed 15th Sept 13.30. Our 5 star film this time is on a different continent and a different genre. A 1964 French film with Oscar nominated music composed by Michel Legrand “an enchanting French throwback to the Hollywood musicals of the 1920’s” Can’t say we ain’t trying to offer choices!

Wed 20th Oct. 13.30. Now we are getting closer to home, a 1947 British film based on a famous novel by Graham Greene, the young actor playing the infamous lead gives a breath taking performance as a small time gangster trying to fill someone else’s bigger shoes “this is one of the most sinister crime films ever made in Britain” Might seem a little tame beside some of the fare provided nowadays but if it’s quality you want it’s here.

Wed 17th Nov 13.30. Something to provide a bit of summer warmth as we head into winter, a classic 1952 Ealing comedy with connections to the Beeching report in the same decade (Google Beeching Report) a whimsical and warm hearted story of a village fighting against the closure of it’s railway, great fun, perhaps it portrays a picture of an England that never really existed, still one of this writers personal favourites (as is the previous film)

No Dec film but should resume in February 2022.
