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. Close-Ups are held at Thoresby College on the South Quay.

Our Close-Ups events are £5 for members and their guests, otherwise £6, which includes complementary refreshments.   This can be paid on the door but please book your place in advance by e-mailing email hidden; JavaScript is required as this helps us with catering and photocopies!

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 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.

So that we can tell Pizza Express how many people to expect, , please e-mail us on email hidden; JavaScript is required if you would like to come, just giving your name and that of anyone else coming with you, by Thursday 25th January. There is no need to decide what you want to eat beforehand.

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.




Saturday 15thJune
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.
