CLOSE-UPS & SOCIAL EVENTS

Close-Ups Events
These events are enjoyable, informal and sociable with no prior knowledge of the films necessary and opportunities to gain insights into many different aspects of film via a combination of input, informal discussion and a variety of fascinating film clips.

The Covid-19 outbreak has restricted our ability to meet as a group, but our Close-up sessions have continued on-line using Zoom. We were almost all very new to Zoom, but everything worked well, and it was extremely gratifying to see so many familiar faces on screen.

We are delighted with the numbers taking part in these sessions, as well as the positive feed back we have received, and have decided that, despite KLCCC’s screenings returning to the real world, we will continue to present Close-Ups virtually. We hope that as we all gain confidence in using Zoom, others will join us. It really is very easy to follow the link, and there is nothing scary about it. You don’t need to contribute if you don’t want to, and you don’t even have to show your face (though of course we’d love to see you)!

SUITED AND BOOTED —
LESSONS IN MEN’S STYLE FROM THE MOVIES
Thursday 18thFebruary 7.30pm
CLOSE-UP VIA ZOOM

Presented by Christopher Budd via ZOOM

They say clothes make the man, and nowhere is that truer than on the silver screen.   The humble men’s suit might be easy to overlook in studies of cinematic costume design, but in the hands of skilled tailors and costumiers those simple bits of cloth have the power to evoke bygone eras, tell us hidden truths about characters, and create timeless iconic images.   Put on your Sunday best and join writer and teacher Christopher Budd for a journey through the glory days of men’s tailoring from the ‘40s to the ‘70s.

 

Please let us know if you have any requests for future events.
