WEIMAR ERA

The Great Hall, Thoresby College, King’s Lynn
(please use the South Quay entrance)

Led by Phil Lloyd

The Weimar Era in film history describes those movies made in Germany immediately following the First World War. The plots explore the dark side of human nature, using expressionist design for their sets to create a nightmarish atmosphere. Films in this style include The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Robert Wiene, 1919), Nosferatu (Murnau, 1922), Dr. Mabuse the Gambler (Lang, 1922) Metropolis (Lang,1927) and Faust (Murneau, 1926).

ALL DAY TRIP TO ALDEBURGH AND ITS CINEMA

Bookings have been brisk for our summer coach outing to Aldeburgh Cinema on Friday 15th June so do please submit your booking form to avoid disappointment. We will be leaving King’s Lynn at 8:30 a.m. and returning by about 8:00 p.m. We should arrive in Aldeburgh at about 11:00, giving you plenty of time before our visit to the cinema beginning at 2:30, where we hope to see the Alfred Hitchcock film “To Catch a Thief” (tbc). You can bring up to 2 guests and the cost will be £16 per person. However, there are not many places left on the coach

You should have received further information about the trip together with the booking form, which we ask you to complete and either email it to: email hidden; JavaScript is required and pay by bank transfer, or put it in an envelope, together with your cheque, and hand them to the volunteers giving out the sweets at the film on 5th April. For those who have already booked and paid, you should have received a confirmation e-mail. If you haven’t, please let us know.

Thursday 20thSeptember 7-9pm

IN COLOUR

The Great Hall, Thoresby College, King’s Lynn
(please use the South Quay entrance)

Led by Christopher Budd

Nowadays we can be forgiven for taking it for granted, but the challenge of capturing all the colours of the rainbow on celluloid occupied some of the best minds in Hollywood for decades.   Join writer and teacher Christopher Budd for a little bit of movie science and lots of clips of important milestones in the history of colour filming, as well as an exploration of some of its cleverest creative uses.
