This Season’s Upcoming Films
2020 /21 Season and the Pandemic
The pandemic is still very much with us. The Community Centre have said that we should not show films there in the present state of the pandemic. Earlier in the year we discussed the hopeful possibility of showings to a limited number, perhaps 30, and on that basis we polled members and around half of you said that you would be willing to attend films in the Gates Hall, with appropriate social distancing measures. Sadly that option has not turned out to be possible, and we are “off the air” for at least the first half of this season.
All films are shown in the Gates Hall (formerly the Fuller McLellan Hall) at the Lymington Centre. Doors open 30mins before show and refreshments are available.
LFS Membership costs £25 (entry to all 8 films). LFS members must also be members of the Lymington Centre (Enquiries on 01590 672337)
Alternatively tickets are available for each film at £7.00 on the door, £6.00 for Lymington Centre members.
Sadly we were unable to show I Got Life or Nae Pasaran as the Community Centre was closed as part of the measures to contain the Coronavirus.
Sunday 19th April 2020 8.00pm
Nae Pasaran (2018; English/Spanish)
Dir : Felipe Bustos Sierra 1hr 36mins, 12A
In a Scottish town in 1974, factory workers refuse to carry out repairs on warplane engines in an act of solidarity against the violent military coup in Chile. 40 years after their defiant stand in protest against Pinochet’s Air Force, Scottish pensioners discover the dramatic consequences of their solidarity in this heartfelt and poignant documentary. (IMDB; Guardian)
NB: April’s film is taking place on 3rd Sunday of the month to avoid Easter, and will be preceded by Annual General Meeting at 6.45 PM (Members only)
Sunday 10th May 2020 8.00pm
I Got Life (2017; French)
Dir: Blandine Lenoir 1hr 29mins, 15
Blandine Lenoir’s lovely, intricate film tackles a subject that rarely gets addressed in the arts, with a comical lilt. The ‘everyday heroine’ of this film defies convention to show the realities of age discrimination, menopause – and happiness – post-50. A life-affirming, upbeat French comedy to round off the season!
