This new member-driven activity is a “must” for classical and foreign film enthusiasts. Members meet at the Zamia Theatre every third Sunday of each month from 5.30 pm to watch a movie and socialize. The films are chosen by the members, mainly from the archives of the National Film and Sound Archive.

 

The difference between the new Film Club and Movies on the Mountain (MOM) are the rules about who gets in to see the film. The Film Club has free sessions for members only, while the MOM charges an entry fee to the general public. Also, MOM shows new-release films while the club will look for good quality, less-commercial older films.

 

Besides screening the movie, the club also has a social side to it, so if you want to bring along some nibbles and drinks, then that will certainly add to the club atmosphere. Of course, there is always tea and coffee available. Joining the Film Club is easy – the annual fee of only $10, with no more to pay, also includes automatic membership of TMLT! To join, just click on the Membership option under the About Us tab or telephone me on 0466 313 648.

 

We look forward to seeing you there.

August Movie:

 

Innocence

INNOCENCE is a timeless and charming romance from director Paul Cox (A Woman’s Tale) starring the incredibly talented Julia Blake (Hotel de Love, Lonely Hearts) and Charles “Bud” Tingwell (The Castle). It’s a compelling and heartwarming testament to the human spirit and the vital elements of passion and desire that make the spirit soar. For 50 years, Claire (Blake) has dealt with the support and comfort of a loveless marriage. Seemingly satisfied that her twilight years will be spent with a husband she’s grown to know but no longer loves, Claire’s entire world is turned upside down when a boyfriend from her youth attempts to re-ignite a spark that once fueled the fire of a torrid and passionate affair. Now, torn between the man she knows and a love she needs, she is faced with the most difficult – and important – choice of her life.

Date: Sunday 20th August, 5.30pm
