Film Club runs every month at 2pm in the Parish Hall
Thanks to a legacy from a former Churchwarden, Honey Honeysett, the Parish Hall is equipped to project films from high definition DVD and Blu-ray discs. Barbara Moreland, who launched the monthly Film Club in 2016, is delighted with the Club’s rapid growth and popularity, particularly amongst older Merton Park residents. “We tend to focus on classic films – especially award winning British films” she explains. “Our first film was the Ealing comedy ‘The Ladykillers’, and each month we show one of a wide range of dramas, comedies and musicals – ‘Top Hat’ was a particular favourite.”
A suitable intermission enables everyone to enjoy a cup of tea, or coffee and biscuits, as the Film Club is as much a social event as a cultural one. Regular member John travels over from Raynes Park, and he particularly appreciates the friendly atmosphere and the chance to have a chat.
There’s a suggested £3 donation to cover costs, which include refreshments and the film licences. There is a wide range of films available under the Church Video Licence scheme; however, members’ suggestions are always welcome and more expensive or international films can, from time to time, be paid for from club funds.
Film Club meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 2pm in the small hall in the Parish Hall. Spaces are limited so please come early to ensure a good seat.
