Don’t forget to book your spot for dinner behind the screen, a great 2-course meal by Catherine Turrin and wines by Camyr Allyn Wines, while you soak up the atmosphere at the James and prepare to watch the final session of a wonderful Flickerfest program. We need final numbers for the dinner by Wednesday 5 March but you can still buy tickets to all sessions at the door on Saturday if you haven’t got your tickets already.
Our March program starts with the wonderful children’s film ‘Frozen’ (PG) on Saturday 1 March at 3pm only; and then for a nostalgic trip back in time the start of ‘Down Memory Lane’ for 2014 with ‘Love is a Many Splendored Thing’ on Thursday 6 March at 10am. Later in the month we have Flickerfest, the not-to-be-missed ‘Philomena’ (M) and two wonderful old documentaries during the week of Tractor Trek on 20 March.
Sunday 23 February at 7pm is the start of the Dungog Film Society 2014 season with the highly acclaimed film, The Railway Man. At $80 (including your annual subscription of $10 to the Friends of the James Theatre) for 10 films, this is great value. But you do not need to subscribe to come to these films. Just come to any films of your choice for our usual price of $12 at the door. For those who want a subscription, you can buy them at the door before the film. Come and join us next Sunday for a wonderful film!
