WFS sets date to

re-open in October

Thank you to all our members and loyal supporters for your patience for more than a year, and for a few months to come.

We will re-open on Friday 29 October 2021 with a terrific season of films for the winter. It was decided reluctantly not to reconvene earlier because so many of you are likely to be away because of holidays after the long lockdown in previous months.

The programme will be updated shortly, but will include heart-felt dramas, thrillers and comedies. Many are Oscar winners or came top of film fans’ polls, but the choice came down to what we think you will enjoy, based on past experience. We’ve mixed those in English and foreign languages, and sought out many you are unlikely to see elsewhere. Watch for details of films and dates shortly.

In addition, for 2022, there will a Nostalgia Night, with a Golden Oldie chosen by members.

We were able to show only two of the 12 films planned for 2020 – plus the January bonus film – so members will carry forward £20 of their £24 annual membership fee.

We look forward to seeing you after the intermission.

And in normal times ..

A welcome awaits you at Winchcombe Film Society. Membership costs just £24 pp for a full year of films, (or pro rata) normally on the last Friday of the month, with no further admission charge.

We meet at Abbey Fields, Back Lane, Winchcombe GL54 5QH. Members can enjoy a glass of wine at just £1.50 from 7pm before the 7.30 screening, or free tea, coffee and biscuits. Please come early. Limited parking is available.

After a short introduction, all films, even those in English, are shown with sub-titles if available. For a list of those shown over the past six years, click on Past films and ratings in the menu.

We try to make it easy to make friends, and socialise later at the nearby Corner Cupboard. For more details, click this link: Contact us.

Love it? Loathe it? You can email winchcombefilmsociety@gmail.com to have your views reported here after every film.

New for next season

Nostalgia Night

For the first time, Winchcombe Film Society will hold a Nostalgia Night, to be held in June

We already have a short list of classic films to offer. We will provide you the members with a list of four, and ask you to choose just one of these Golden Oldies to be screened that evening.

And to match the occasion, we’ll be offering drinks before the film at 1950s prices (but normal prices will apply at The Corner Cupboard later!) Extraverts may treat the occasion in suitable fashion.
