Wilbrahams’ Film Club 

The Wilbrahams’ Film Club provides our local community the opportunity to watch popular films in the company of fellow villagers in the Wilbrahams’ Memorial Hall.  So if you like watching films and don’t fancy travelling into Cambridge this Club is ideal for you.

Our aim is to make this a social event with the venue opening half an hour prior to the film showing, and refreshments being available at that time.

The membership fee will be £12 per individual for over 18s, and free to those under 18.  15 to 18 year olds will be able to view the films unaccompanied, but those under 15 will need to be with a member.  The films are generally not suitable for under 5s.

Around 12 films a year will be shown, mainly on a Friday or Saturday evening, but it hoped to have films being shown at other times as the Club finds it feet (perhaps even “Happy Feet”!).

It’s 12 months, 12 films, 12 pounds – the best deal this year!

If you must use cheques they should be made payable to the Wilbrahams’ Film Club and sent to:

Paul Lambton, The Barn, 1 Ratfords Yard,
Great Wilbraham, Cambridge CB21 5JT.

(Please ensure all the members’ names are associated with the cheque).

We prefer bank transfers details below:

Programme information will normally be sent to members via the email address provided on the application form, as well as being posted on the Wilbrahams’ Website, and Wilbrahams Community Facebook Page.

So why not join the Club and save yourself a trip into Cambridge, meet up with friends prior to the film and get to know new people from the villages.

If you have any questions please email wilbrahamsfilmclub@gmail.com

October-December 2019

Friday 18th October     

The Old Man and the Gun

Another film based on a true story but this time based on the story of Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford), from his audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public. Wrapped up in the pursuit are detective John Hunt (Casey Affleck), who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek), who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.
 
We aim to celebrate the Film Club’s 1st Birthday by having a social gathering with drinks and nibbles at some point during the evening – more on this to follow.

Friday 22nd November The Dressmaker

Based on Rosalie Ham’s best selling novel, The Dressmaker is the story of femme fatale Tilly Dunnage (Kate Winslet) who returns to her small home town in the Australian country to right the wrongs of the past. This is a stylish drama with comic undertones about love, revenge and ‘haute couture’.

Sat 28th December         Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

Hopefully showing this comedy, drama film will provide a respite from the Christmas festivities.  The film tells the story about a visionary sheik who believes his passion for the peaceful pastime of salmon fishing can enrich the lives of his people, and he dreams of bringing the sport to the not so fish-friendly desert. Willing to spare no expense, he instructs his representative to turn the dream into reality, an extraordinary feat that will require the involvement of Britain’s leading fisheries expert who happens to think the project both absurd and unachievable. That is, until the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary latches on to it as a ‘good will’ story. Now, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.
