Welcome to Keynsham Film Works
We had a very quiet start last month with Parasite – hope to see you on May 5th for Western.
As we had to stop in March 2020 we thought it was a good plan to start again from April ’22, this means the membership from 2020 will roll over and the last 3 screenings will simply run into this year’s April (7th), May (5th) and June (9th). Don’t worry if you can’t find your cards (but do bring them if you can) – we have everyone’s details and can look them up on the night.
The Space is fully open, there are no restrictions in place for audience numbers or social distancing. Due to the fixed raked seating there isn’t a great deal we can do to space everyone out, which is why we’ve waited this long to start again. Please feel free to wear a face mask if you so wish, we are not going to make it compulsory as we feel it is a personal choice.
We’re not going to run a bar at these first three films, you are welcome to bring your own drinks but no glass please.
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.
There will be no bar for the first (last?) 3 films in April, May and June 2022, you can take in your own drinks but no glass please. Hope to see you there and hope you enjoy the film!
Our next film is:
9th June 2022
Yearning to own a small patch of land and be more than a chicken sexer, the ambitious paterfamilias, Jacob Yi, relocates his Korean-American family: sceptical wife, Monica, and their children, David and Anne, from California to 1980s rural Arkansas, to start afresh and capture the elusive American Dream. However, new beginnings are always challenging, and to find out what is best for the family, let alone start a 50-acre farm to grow and sell Korean fruits and vegetables, is easier said than done. But, amid sincere promises, cultural unease, fleeting hopes, and the ever-present threat of financial disaster, Jacob is convinced that he has found their own slice of Eden in the rich, dark soil of Arkansas. Can grandma Soonja’s humble but resilient minari help the Yi family figure out their place in the world?
