Film Society Update: 25th July 2020

Dear Filmgoers

I hope you are keeping well in these strange times, and managing to find good films to watch, from different sources.

Your TFS committee has continued to meet on monthly zoom meetings, partly to keep in touch with each other, but also to explore the possibilities of restarting our film showings.

The government allowed public cinemas to reopen from the beginning of this month, with rather complicated rules regarding distancing, both in the auditoriums and entrance halls.

Our own situation is dependent on the school allowing the use of the Art’s Centre, following guidelines of distancing, and working out the feasibility of pre-showing refreshments. And, of course the willingness of the organising committee members to emerge from some lockdown habits.

We will keep you informed of any changes in the current situation.

When we do emerge, we will keep to the printed film dates, as shown on this Web site, and catch up, next year, with all those we missed. Any members who paid their membership prior to lock down will be credited for the missed months.

Meanwhile, best wishes from the whole committee. We hope to see everyone as soon as possible.

Steve Bentley. Chair TFS committee.
