Our next film and other stuff

Posted by on September 30th, 2014

Since the Flinders Flicks film society reformed this year, the society has been treated to two films, firstly “The Great Gatsby” and later “The Grand Budapest Hotel” in the comfortable ‘movie room’ setting at Emily’s Bistro, using the Flinders Flicks projector and screen which is now permanently mounted there.

We have decided to continue to run film events on a monthly basis. Audience numbers are limited to around 35 per film so it will be essential for people to book early. The events at Emily’s will run along similar lines to the first one, with the film being shown for free, and guests paying a per head charge to cover the costs of snacks.

Donations are very welcome as we are saving for a new projector. We want to purchase a full HD projector, which will ensure a higher quality of image, especially for outdoor cinema, which is something we would like to do over summer.

Not long ago Flinders Flicks put out a survey, many thanks to the 11 people who responded. The respondents indicated that they would like to see award-winning films, from South Australia or at least Australia, and preferably of the comedy or romantic genres. I hope the Australian film industry takes note! We would like however to please all the members, and will vary the films accordingly.

The film for October will be Tracks, which was filmed here two years ago and is based on the book by Robyn Davidson.
