The Film Study Group Meets 2nd Wednesday of each month, 1:45 for 2:00 pm start in

The Westlake Room, Balsall Common Village Hall  Station Road


We are showing a wide variety of films projected onto the large screen in the Westlake room at the Village Hall, new members are always welcome to this friendly group; there is no need to commit to every meeting, if you would like to see the film - just turn up!

Our showings start at 2:00pm and will have a short discussion about the film after the showing, covering its aesthetics (look), topicality (to the time it was made), acting and directing (and whether it was any good). There is a charge of 2.00 per member per film, covering the cost of the films and the room hire.

The Film Study Group is open to all u3a members, there is no specific group membership. Non u3A members will not be admitted to this group. It should be noted that this is a film study and discussion group NOT a cinema group.

The next film screening, on Wednesday 8th June at 2:00pm in the Westlake Room

The Westlake Room is limited in size, so I would ask that attendance is indicated via an email to the coordinator or text to 07510725607
