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!

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.
