Weekly Film Sceenings Are Planned

Weekly Film Sceenings Are Planned

The Film Society hopes to hold weekly screenings alternating between lunch-time and evening sessions this year.

The intention is to show comedies and light features at lunch-times and to have full-length feature films in the evenings.

Lunchtime screenings is an attempt to provide some form of daytime entertainment for students.

The films shown already: "Kind Hearts and Coronets," a Charlie Chaplin series.

"Students had shown an encouraging response," said Andrew Cornwall, club secretary, "especially as they were the first screenings this year.

"We hope to attract more interest as the idea of lunchtime screenings catches on," he said.

"Our greatest need is for qualified projectionists," said Cornwall. "It would only involve perhaps one hour a fortnight and I would urge any such people to see myself or some other member of the committee."

Following the success last year of "Joan of Arc" and "Aparjito," the society intends to show further sequences in the "Apu Trilogy" and some of Norman McLaren's experimental films which have proved very popular.
