New Film List for Spring and Summer Term 2011

Impact has produced a full film season for the rest of the academic year, you will find this HERE. However I should point out that the day has changed from Thursday to Wednesday. This has enabled us, in most cases, to see two films a month thus providing a more fulfilling and varied programme.

Book Club Dates Announced

The dates for next spring and summer terms at the book club are now on the Book Club section of this blog here .

Rescheduled Film

The showing of A Single Man has been rescheduled to Wednesday 24th November at 7.30.

This is one of the previously postponed films.

The film is set in Los Angeles in 1962 and tells the story of George Falconer, a middle-aged English college professor who has struggled to find meaning in his life since the car accident that killed his longtime partner, Jim, eight months earlier. Jim's family disapproved of his relationship with George and thus refused George permission to attend the funeral. It stars Colin Firth in the lead role.

This is a special showing for the Bookworms United book club but all are welcome.

The next meeting of the book club is on Monday night at 7pm in COSTA COFFEE Nantwich.
