Sunday 27thJanuary 6pm
This year we have decided to do something different so why not give yourself a treat on Sunday 27th January by joining fellow members for a meal at Pizza Express, Saturday Market Place, after the matinee film “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society”. They serve a variety of pasta and salad dishes as well as pizzas and you can take a look at the menu by clicking on this link www.pizzaexpress.com/kings-lynn/our-food/restaurant-menu/restaurant-menu and then click on the individual courses. (If you know the type of main you would like, you may find it easier to use the categories at the top of the “Mains” menu to avoid having to click on “Show more” several times.)
We have booked the meal for 6pm but you can go straight there at the end of the film.
Pizza Express have currently a deal giving 2 mains for the price of one, which is valid on Sundays. You can download a code from the “Offers” tab on their website.

Songs, Soundtrack Albums and Psychedelia:
Film Scoring in the 1960s
Introduced by Christopher Budd
The end of the US studio system, a revitalised British film industry, and the emergence of pop music as a cultural force; It was a perfect storm. Squeeze into your best bellbottoms and spend two hours with writer and teacher Christopher Budd exploring how composers and filmmakers on both sides of the Atlantic tackled the challenges and opportunities of film scoring in the decade which took us from West Side Story to Midnight Cowboy, from Psycho to Planet of The Apes, and from How The West Was Won to Zabriskie Point.
Day Trip to Lincoln
We will be visiting The Collection and having a private film screening in the auditorium. This year, to allow working members to participate, we have planned the trip for a Saturday.
Full details and booking form will be emailed out to members in February.
Please let us know if you have any requests for future events.
