Welcome to Keynsham Film Works
As I’m sure you’re all expecting we’ve had to cancel the rest of this seasons films, we might run them as the start of next year but watch this space as we put up new information.
We screen films to members and visitors on the first Thursday of the month from September to June at The Space – which is the new building above the library. Doors open at 7.15 for a 7.45 start. We can get quite busy and (so far) seats are on a first come first served basis, there’s no booking in advance it’s simply pay on the door (£5).
Full membership for the year is still £30, bring your cheques payable to Keynsham Film Works along on the night to speed the process of signing up, this gives you entry to all 10 films making it £3 per film. You can use pay online here using paypal if you prefer and save the paperwork 🙂
We’ve not had to turn people away yet but we’ve been very close and the numbers are rising so getting in early isn’t a bad idea.
If you’d like to receive reminders of the next film via email please join the mailing list – we only send a quick email out on the Monday before the film with details and any relevant message (like snow warnings!).
There’s a new page listing the films we couldn’t fit into next years season of 10 films here: Films to watch out for, have a browse next time you’re searching for something to watch.
We’ve set up a simple bar (run by us) that is only set to cover costs, any suggestions to improve the service greatly received! Hope to see you there and hope you enjoy the film!
Our next film is:
4th June 2020
The film is based on the memoir of real life author Lee Israel, who had been a successful magazine-writer and biographer of the likes of Katherine Hepburn and Estee Lauder. She has fallen on hard times however and is struggling to make a living: drinking too much, writing too little, getting nothing published. Only her ailing cat loves her. While researching for a new biography of Fanny Brice, Lee chances upon some valuable letters from her which she sells. When Lee adds a spicy PS to one of the notes, its retail value rockets. Soon, Lee is forging Noël Coward’s signature and typing missives from Dorothy Parker… McCarthy was nominated for an Oscar for best actress for her role and Richard E Grant won best supporting actor for his.
