About the Film Club

The Film Club seeks to enhance the educational, recreational and cultural experience of city residents through exposure to an eclectic film selection. It involves the screening of a selected film followed by a group discussion on scenes and actors of interest, film anecdotes and trivia, and the historical context of the film just viewed.

Who can attend?

Film Club screenings are intended for mature library members. Please note the film classifications. Further information about film classifications is available here.

When is it on?

The third Saturday of each month from February to November.

What kind of films are shown?

The films chosen have sufficient depth and complexity to support varied interpretations, responses and viewpoints. Film Club members can suggest future themes and film titles.
