Welcome to Keynsham Film Works
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).
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:
5th September 2019
Based on a true story, this comedy/drama road trip film recounts how two unlikely travel companions navigate the terrifying racism of America’s Deep South in 1962. They are an African-American classical pianist Don Shirley and his driver Tony ‘Tony Lip’ Vallelonga, a working-class Italian-American bouncer. They begin their trek armed with ‘The Negro Motorist Green Book’, a travel guide for safe travel through America’s racial segregation. Initially, they don’t get on, but by witnessing and enduring the appalling injustices on the road, they gradually come to respect each other’s talents, nurturing a friendship and understanding that would change both their lives.
