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!).
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:
2nd May 2019
This black comedy has been recommended by two of our members. After an initial lack of success it has become a cult classic. Harold is a wealthy but bored twenty year old obsessed with death. His unloving mother is only interested in finding him a wife and a career. In a series of darkly comic scenes Harold manages to put off the potential brides selected by his mother by various bizarre acts of simulated suicide. He meets eccentric 79 year old Maude (Ruth Gordon) at a funeral. She helps him avoid his mother’s plans for a military career and they embark together on a series of escapades in the lead up to her eightieth birthday. Gradually Harold learns from Maude about how about life and love and why her family history make her so determined to have fun whilst she can. Filmed in San Francisco with music by Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam) the film captures the essence of the era just after the 1960’s flower power period but has remained popular for its lessons for all times.
