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.
We may also include the odd film on our let's talk/film chat page.

Marginally fewer films to recommend at the moment, but these are worth a look - and they are all on our Film Selection list.

Ad Astra - Yes it's science fiction but this is a highly praised one - the story of a man searching for his father lost in outer space and starring Brad Pitt.

The Joker- "Bold, devastating and utterly beautiful, Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix have not just reimagined one of the most iconic villains in cinema history, but reimagined the comic book movie itself." Empire

Amazing Grace - A documentary about the late great Aretha Franklin

The Australian Dream - A look at race, identity and belonging, through the prism of the story of Adam Goode.

The Souvenir - Tilda Swinton and her daughter star in a story about a young girl and her first love affair with a charismatic but difficult man. 

Judy - Renée Zellweger is phenomenally good in this captivating account of Judy Garland’s final London concert run. Definitley worth seeing !!

Birds of Passage - from the makers of Embrace of the Serpent comes this Film about a Colombian indigenous family caught up in the drug scene.

Blinded by the Light - A young English teenager from an Asian family finds his voice through the music of Bruce Springsteen. Gurinder Chadha brings her usual warmth to this entertaining tale.

Slam - An Australian film about a young Muslim poet who disappears in Sydney.

Hustlers - a group of New York strippers band together to turn the tables on their employers.  Don't be put off by the topic - it's said to be good.

Then there's Quentin Tarantino's latest. Not for everyone we know, but for the fans it's a good one.

And before too long we shall start to see next year's Oscar contenders.
