We are hoping to start a film club in the Autumn, possibly October, as the nights are drawing in. The plan would be to run it in a similar way to a book group: choosing a different film each month to watch in our own time and then meet to discuss (either on zoom or in person)Films could be from any genre and accessible via streaming eg Netflix or DVD
