New Cinema Club for Twickenham

If you like watching classic and cult films which rarely get an airing on television or in cinemas then you’re in luck.  A new cinema club is launching in Twickenham to do just that.  Called, rather unsurprisingly, Twickenham Cinema Club, the aim of the new venture is to create a club run by members, for members. You can expect an eclectic mix of film with the idea that the members are the curators. There will also be a social element to screenings with an opportunity to chat before and afterwards. The opening film is 1945’s ‘Mildred Pierce‘ starring Joan Crawford. It’s something of a noir classic, a tale of ambition, struggle and mother daughter rivalry and is based on the novel by James M Cain whose other books include The Postman Always Rings Twice and Double Indemnity. How’s that for pedigree?

To join the club costs £10 per year with the first film free and subsequent films at £7. Otherwise it’s £10 on the door for non-members.  For local film buffs, the new club is a welcome complement to Richmond Film Society which has been running since 1963 and focuses on world cinema with screenings at St Mary’s University.

Mildred Pierce is showing at Patchworks at The Cabbage Patch pub on Wednesday February 8th.

  1. Twickenham Cinema Club

    Many thanks for the support Twickerati, we are a non-profit club run by members for members. We are film fans first who feel we are not catered for by multiplexes so have got together to provide a calm. quiet cinema experience.

    We receive no funding and all costs are underwritten by our newly formed steering committee so do join, come along and chat to us before the screening, tell us what you have seen, would love to see again. We want this to be a monthly and eventually weekly experience and to do that we need Twickenham’s support.

    We hope to keep our entry to a bare minimum so £10 gets you membership, entry to your first film and bring a guest for free. it also gets you on our curator’s list.

    The cabbage Patch have been tremendously supportive offering us the Patchworks screening room, a private bar and a prosecco reception. so if you live and love cinema, want to introduce fellow fans to great cinema, please join.

  2. Correction: If you received the email version of this it said you need to be a member (£10) to see films. In fact, non-members can also attend although membership does give cheaper ticket prices.
