We’re halfway through November, which is as good a time as any to remind all members that we’ll be taking a brief break for the holiday period in just under a month. Our last screening for the year will be on Saturday 10 December (a double dose of murder mysteries with SEE HOW THEY RUN and AMSTERDAM!) until we return in the new year on Friday 13 January, 2023.
But there are still plenty of great films to see before the break, including this week’s offerings: Dwayne Johnson’s superhero blockbuster (BLACK ADAM), a Latvian war drama (THE RIFLEMAN) and a pair of acclaimed Aussie films (CLEAN, BOSCH & ROCKIT). Plus, celebrate the Week of the Italian Cuisine in the World with a glass of prosecco before our screening of THE TRUFFLE HUNTERS on Thursday, thanks to the Embassy of Italy.
• WED 16 NOV @ 7:30 PM: THE RIFLEMAN (MA, 104 MINS)

Presented in partnership with the Embassy of the Republic of Latvia
