We LOVE film!
We are a members only society which celebrates cinema by screening films that are rarely seen on the main circuit, with an emphasis on world cinema. We screen over 20 films on most Tuesdays from September to May at the Borough Hall in Godalming.
The Menuhin Hall and The Yehudi Menuhin School in Cobham are screening the silent film "Lady Windermere's Fan" (1925) as part of their Summer Festival on Friday 9 July. There will also be a talk beforehand by Carl Davis CBE.
The film is based on Oscar Wilde’s classic play set in London in the 1890s, and bubbles with scandal and intrigue. The screening of this witty society comedy will be accompanied by a live performance by YMS pupils of Carl Davis’ original score, conducted by the composer himself.
Pre-screen talk 6 pm, screening 7.30 pm. Tickets £25 can be booked via themenuhinhall.co.uk.
Our season has now concluded - 18 films streamed during the pandemic, which means that we were one of the few film societies / community cinemas in the UK that were able to continue their film season uninterrupted.
Thank you to our members who supported us this season!
We hope that with effective vaccinations and the virus in retreat, we have a sporting chance of being back in the Borough Hall for communal screenings next season.
We are in touch with Waverley and we will follow their lead on when and how we can get back to the Borough Hall. We expect that they will start to screen films this summer and we can learn from their experience.
We still have the option to stream films if circumstances are such that there is a continued delay in getting back to the Borough Hall.
We’ll keep you informed by newsletter this summer and also here on our website.
However - we remain hopeful that we will see you all in person next season!
