Exclusive cinema !

Hello everyone ..

Meeting at the ** Cross Hands pub** , quality pub round the corner at 7PM for a quick drink, then off to the movies ..

Looking like good turnout - please try to be on time-ish ...

In the bill is  ... movie (free) with real cinema seating, air con, superb studio quality sound system, drinks, nibbles; you're very welcome to bring your own nibbles / drinks / sweets / pop-corn if you want too .. Room for only a few more, so if you've got friends who want to come, let me know and see what can be done ..

The studio is actually on the map on this site, but if you do get lost my telephone number for lost sheep is[masked]

See you there ...

Transport, easy bus route from City centre 48 or 49 direct to Fishponds, get off at the Co-op at Fishponds Straights, parking reasonably easy no charges round here.

Any questions, give me a shout, at the moment it's looking like we have several film options, might even decide on the night with vote !!

    Sorry for last minute drop out but I've been ill all week and don't think I'm going to be up for this after all, shame as I really wanted to see Amor, hopefully someone will be able to take advantage of my cancellation - enjoy.

    hi guys (met you before Louis in Bristol Active) sorry I'm away this weekend but would be interested in future film nights. One I'd recommend (but only just saw it myself on a plane) is 'Intouchables' - despite being about a paraplegic it is very very funny and uplifting. Recommended. Have a great evening

    Would absolutely love to come to next meet up for this but 80s disco is calling me. :-))

    March 5, 2013

  • anitapepper

    Oh well done for getting "Amor"...i will be at the pub on time and maybe with a friend

    March 4, 2013

  • Roger

    I am confused. Is it Haneke's "Amour" or not? - Winner of best foreign film at the Oscars, and generally considered the best film of the year?

    March 4, 2013

  • Louis S.

    Think we'll have several film options, and actually vote on the night !! How good is that .. democracy ..

    March 4, 2013

  • Louis S.

    OK, its a fairly good turn-up so far, and I don't exactly want to put people off, sobbing away, so sorry Richard, on the lookout for another film, possibilities are : Argo, SlumDog Millionaire, or we could just stick the James Bond on .... well at least it would be a laugh ...

  • Elyzabeth

    The movie is tragic and terribly depressing.
    It is on my list of movies I would find too upsetting to see.
    Thanks anyway,and Have fun !
    Elyzabeth and Jill

    March 4, 2013

  • Louis S.

    Hey Elyzabeth, you said "I hope it will be something special, and not the usual Hollywood film.", now you say "no way"; ive not seen it myself but the preview looks great.
    Have you actually seen this film, and if not, then, I very much doubt you could judge it !
    It might be rubbish, or it might be utterly mind blowingly brilliant.
    There will be only one way to find out !
    For the price of nought pence, that's not a bad deal ..

    March 4, 2013

    • Elyzabeth

      Just too terribly sad. I will cry...I want to be stimulated by new ideas, not faced with utter and hopeless dispair.

      March 4, 2013

    • Elyzabeth

      Hope we will be able to jon you next time.. Have fun !

      March 4, 2013

  • Elyzabeth

    The film is about a women who has had a stroke and , I believe has Alzheimer's...?

    I know she is severely disabled and her husband has to cope, because he loves her

    Way, way too depressing for us.. I'll check back..and see before we cancel

    March 4, 2013

    • Roger

      Hey! I want too see this film! It is about enduring love!

      1 · March 4, 2013

  • Louis S.

    Just had a quick look at the trailer.... wow.
    So, Amour it is ! I'm am not sure how to get a copy ...
    yet.
    Sending out further details this evening ..

    March 4, 2013

  • Roger

    Any thoughts on the film yet? - I second Haneke's "Amour" if you can get it. Can you get films currently on cinema release or do they have to be old ones?

    March 3, 2013

  • Elyzabeth D.

    Looking forward to it,

    but what will the film be?

    March 3, 2013

  • anitapepper

    hi i can't make tonight but suggestion "Amor" possible future option/

    March 2, 2013

  • Louis S.

    Great, the plan is to meet at the cross hands
    Pub for 7pm, quick half then straight to it.
    I will post a map and further directions
    v soon ... Still undecided on the actual film !
    Had a few ideas, but nothing specific yet..
    Thinking of seeing if I can get Argo ..

    March 2, 2013

  • Anna

    it sounds very cool. Anything by Tarkovsky, Bergman or Amanobar

    March 2, 2013

  • Elyzabeth D.

    As I mentioned earlier, my partner will be joining me.. I know the count will be important , so just wanted to mention it again .
    Looking forward to it !

    I hope it will be something special, and not the usual Hollywood film.

    IDEAS:

    Film Noir? Foreign Film?
    ....Indian, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Russian ?

    What they call here "Kitchen sink films"

    Hi. Looking forward to this and am bringing a work colleague.

    February 24, 2013

  • Louis Sherman changed the location to Forest Road Studios

    February 17, 2013

  • Amanda C

    sorry I can't make that date but would be interested it you hold a similar event again.

    February 17, 2013

  • Louis Sherman changed the date and time to Friday, March 08, 2013 at 7:00 PM

    February 17, 2013

  • Niall M.

    Maybe a classic comedy?

    February 17, 2013

  • Louis S.

    Ok thanks all, I think there is sufficient interest. Did this few times
    last year and is great fun, lets say a date,
    Friday 8th March, 3 weeks, ok now a film, and
    that gives me time to prepare the studio !
    Anybody know how to post pix on this site, anyway
    Will post up all news ! Cheers, Louis

      I am away that weekend but would definitely be interested if its held again

      February 17, 2013

  • Louis S.

    If everyone can spread the word, about 25 is the
    optimum number and remember .. It's free !

    February 17, 2013

  • becky c.

    Sounds great as others would depend on date and film choice - how about a modern "classic" like Trainspotting or Pulp Fiction?

    February 17, 2013

  • Elyzabeth D.

    Sounds like fun!

    February 16, 2013

  • Elyzabeth D.

    Sounds like a lot of fun!
    My partner and I would be very interested, depending on the day and time .weekends( Sat and Sun) of March 2,16 and 30 are times off, or any Monday.
    We do like foreign films or things "off the beaten path", not big Hollywood fans generally, although there are some exceptions of course.
    Look forward to seeing what will happen.

    February 16, 2013

  • Louis S.

    Hi, not been a while since did this
    last, but is a great fun. The studio live
    space converts into a cinema complete
    with orig. cimema seats (seats about
    20 max) , great sound etc.
    I'd post a picture, if any one knows
    how to do that .. Anyway, aiming for
    viewing around mid march, ideas
    for good films anyone ?

    February 5, 2013

  • Ana

    I'm interested too depending on the day. Mmmm... don't know what to suggest, let's see what other people say.

    February 4, 2013

  • Maggie

    I'm interested, although not sure what to suggest as a film.
