Our new programme for the 2017-18 season is now available. Look through our new programme brochure here, or browse through the individual mini-seasons here (scroll down through the post and click on the images for more details).
Between October 2017 and March 2018 the Guild will be showing over 60 films, three a week:
Sunday afternoon, usually starting at 4.30pm
Sunday evening, starting at 7pm
Friday evening, starting at 8pm
All the films we show are grouped into two, three or five film seasons. The films in a season are linked by genre (e.g. British Silent Films), director (e.g. Valario Zurlini), star (e.g. Michèle Morgan), or theme (e.g. Classics of Mexican Cinema).
A high-ranking Italian fascist's son (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and a beautiful widow (Eleonora Rossi Drago) fall in love, just as the reality of war crashes in upon them.
