This is our new page in which we hope to draw your attention to some of the best films currently screening in your local - and other cinemas.
Cinema Nova and Palace Cinemas are the most likely venues for 'art house' films, with Croydon Cinemas and Boronia Metro Cinemas choosing the best from the mainstream, and the Cameo Belgrave somewhere in between. Hoyts Ringwood and our former venue, Readings Chirnside Park show everything from the mainstream - good and bad.
Please note - this page is a bit of an experiment. Films on show change all the time and it may not be possible to keep up with those changes. But let's give it a go.
It will not be possible to include everything on show so we shall be seeking submissions from the Committee and also from you our members. If you have seen a wonderful film - or an awful one come to that, send us an email and we shall try and feature it here.
