Save the David Lean Cinema – https://www.facebook.com/LeanCampaign

That Croydon Council saw fit to mothball this great little independent cinema , before seeing if another model was fit for purpose, ie ‘non-profit’, seemed short-sighted at best and now a campaign has been running for the past 2 years to try to get it re-opened in its original location and the campaign group shows films in The Spread Eagle pub just around the corner from the Croydon Clocktower.

Film Music

On a different but film-related tack, here’s a concert recommendation from one of our FILMBOX patrons:

Last night I went to the Royal Albert Hall to hear the marvellous John Wilson orchestra in the “Hollywood Rhapsody Prom” featuring many of the composers who scored non-musical pictures from the 1930s to the 1960s. One of the scores featured was “Psycho” and I thought that you might like to alert your  recent “Psycho”FILMBOX patrons to the fact that this prom is being televised next Friday 30th August at 7.30p.m. on BBC4 so that they can enjoy hearing a fantantastic 90 strong orchestra performing, inter alia, the “Psycho” suite for strings.The Albert Hall was packed out for a wonderful concert. John Wilson, still in his early 40s, has single-handledly arranged the music of  many MGM and Warner Brothers’ musical films and has a massive following of people of all ages who just love to hear his orchestra perform.’ C.W.

Thanks Christine for your super recommendation and we’d love to have more content from our FILMBOX patrons so please feel free to email us and we’ll post it – also you are very welcome to  comment on our posts.

A FILM APPRECIATION SHORT COURSE by FILMBOX

You said YES to ‘NO’!

Thank you so much to the FILMBOX patrons who emailed their responses to our screening of Larraín’s current film, ‘NO’, starring Gael Garcia Bernal, which we showed on Wed 27 February.

Here are some extracts:

  • Absolutely fantastic!   Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.  Great Spanish practice and I learnt a lot about the Chilean regime.   Also enjoyed the film as “a film”.  I teach Spanish to adults and with enough notice would bring my students along too. Looking forward to the next Spanish, French, Italian or any other foreign film.
  •  I thought it was a bit slow to start but once it got going I really enjoyed it and found it interesting. Thought the main character was quite detached and was surprised the film wasn’t driven more by him.
  • Despite wondering whether I would enjoy this film (as it was political) my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thought provoking, educational and totally absorbing throughout. Been telling friends about Pinochet’s ejection from power through the media campaign. Very pleased we saw the film. The subtitles ran rather quickly though!
  • The film itself was an eye-opener as to what it must have been like in Chile while Pinochet (and his supporters) were in charge – Don’t know if I would be right in likening it to the German experience leading up to WWII and possibly other dictatorships I suppose.
  • I did find the nicely sized subtitles rather difficult to read in the time they were on screen and disconcerting when the camera seemed to be moving back and forth so much behind them, however I imagine it had to be weighed against the cost of dubbing.  Don’t know how faithful it was to the crude language that was implied. Don’t think I would want to see a film in a foreign language with subtitles unless it was factual. It is difficult to appreciate the film as a whole when having to read at the bottom.
  • We all knew the end (result) of the film, but it is still a tense, atmospheric journey.  As much a documentary as political thriller, it was a film of fine acting and the cuts to real news items and original film were seamless and enthralling.  Garcia Bernal…….  what more can I say?!  Excellent film – thank you.  Now just have to go back and see the earlier films from the trilogy!
  • Thought the film was very interesting and very well put together as it gave really gave a good insight into an aspect of history I knew little about. Well done for showing films like this.

We’d like to include a poll of how you’ve scored the films we’ve shown so far but need to find a good way to do this… any ideas?

Thanks to those FILMBOX members who have volunteered as helpers for FILMBOX future screenings – we’d still be very grateful for some more help (and you’ll see the film for free!).
