Welcome to Keynsham Film Works
There’s a Christmas feel in the air and the darker nights feel just right to come out and see what the film club has to offer!
We’re half way through the season and still going strong, last month’s film “The Menu” seemed to split the audience – some loved it – others not so much! But it’s all about finding new and interesting films and those films are always going to divide opinion.
We found an earring after The Menu – if you’ve lost one please let us know 🙂
We’ve also been working to remove the annoying spam posts on our facebook page, which is now cleaner and will hopefully be more useful and a place to discuss the films – please use this link to join the group.
We’ve had several positive comments on the improvements to the sound, so hopefully that’s a hurdle we’ve overcome – the next film (Hit The Road) is subtitled anyway so not such a big deal.
Everyone’s welcome, bring your friends and enjoy a drink with the film – if you’re trying us out for the first time (where have you been?) it’s £5 on the door. 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.
The entrance to The Space is the side door on Temple Street (opposite Iceland) as there is no access via the Library.
Full membership for the year is still £30, cash, card payments or cheques (payable to Keynsham Film Works) can be made on the night, this gives you entry to all 10 films making it £3 per film. You can pay on our website here using paypal if you prefer and save the paperwork 🙂
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!).
Our next film is:
7th December 2023
A charming, sharp-witted, and deeply moving drama. Hit the Road takes the tradition of the Iranian road-trip movie and adds unexpected twists and turns. It follows a family of four, two middle-aged parents and their sons, as they drive across the Iranian countryside. Over the course of the trip, they bond over memories of the past and grapple with fears of the unknown. Unspoken tensions arise and the film builds emotional momentum as it slowly reveals the furtive purpose of their journey.
A far-reaching fable of connection and separation, handled with disarming wit and tenderness. Witty, heart breaking and humane.
