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!

Thursday 8thAugust 6pm
Pre-Film Meal At The Riverside Restaurant

We invite you to join fellow members for a meal at The Riverside Restaurant at 6pm before the film Shoplifting on Thursday 8th August. Although we are offering you a 2 or 3 course meal this August, rather than a buffet, weather permitting, you will have the choice of eating outside and enjoying the views from the terrace or eating inside. Let’s hope for a balmy evening!

To book, please ring the Riverside Restaurant on 01553-773134, giving your choices from the menu below. To ensure it is viable for them to hold this event, on this occasion, we ask that you book before Thursday 1st August if you would like to come. (It is a busy time of year and the restaurant does not open in the evening after our meals.)

We look forward to seeing you there.




Thursday 12thSeptember 6.30pm
Celebration of the Club’s 9th birthday

We invite you to celebrate the Club’s birthday from 6:30 pm on Thursday 12th September with cake and fizz at Crofters before the film. We look forward to seeing you there.

The Films of David Lean

Introduced by Sue Burge

An exploration of British director David Lean’s astonishing career which spanned over forty years and divided into two distinct periods. We will look at his early very British films such as In Which We Serve and Brief Encounter, as well as considering the epic films he directed later in his career such as Dr Zhivago. A perfectionist, Lean’s legacy is an enduring one.
