"I, Daniel Blake" Steps up on the 15th of June

Just as the best plans of mice and men can go awry so can those of your favourite Film Society.

Due to an unanticipated availability issue June's offering will be the acclaimed British drama I, Daniel Blake. As Daniel was scheduled for later in the year this means our second half screenings will be somewhat shuffled.

But rest assured we will still be enjoying some of the best films from around the world - just in a different order.

So come along at 6:30 on Thursday to enjoy some quality Koonara wines, some finger food and bright conversation before settling down at 7:00 for some great drama.

Updates to our screenings will be made over the next few days.

Dheepan Rates 3.4 Stars in The Starbox

The moving story of Sri Lankan Tamil refugees battling to establish themselves in a foreign land scored a respectable 3.4 on Thursday's Star Box rating.

A slightly smaller turnout this month were challenged, entertained and at times confronted by the struggles and finally, literal battles of Dheepan and his "family" fleeing from the conflict in their homeland to the harsh realities of some of France's less picturesque residential areas.

The enjoyment of the evening, of course, being greatly enhanced by the delights of the Wood Blocks Wines which preceded the showing.
