During late March the committee members have had a number of email discussions about arrangements for the current and the next season. A number of ideas were floated about possible methods for selecting films for the 2020/211 season for which we would normally have had meetings in April and May. We also considered options for reimbursing members for their loss incurred by the cancellation of films in the current season. One idea put forward appeared to solve most of our difficulties and has been accepted as the way forward.

The current season is to be extended to the end of this year with a break over the summer to mid October. We will then show some or all of the cancelled films in the period up to Christmas. The 2021 season will be a short one January to June with prices pro-rota to a normal season. We would then hopefully be back to our usual arrangements with the 2021/22 season starting in October 2021

In our 50th season we are screening as double bills some previously shown films by popular directors.  The films shown on the left may now be shown in the autumn.
