Film Night – Kingpin, 25th April, 8.30pm

Film Night – Kingpin, 25th April, 8.30pm

Film Club
Now that the bowls season is up and running we thought it would be a good idea to show another bowls film...unfortunately outside Crackerjack (which we will show again later in the year) there aren't any good ones so have gone with a Ten Pin Bowling film instead, classic 90s comedy Kingpin. We'd like to think this won't offend traditional bowls members but coming from the makers of Dumb and Dumber and There's Something About Mary, this is certainly a 'bad taste' comedy but most importantly Woody Harrelson, Randy Quaid and Bill Murray's hair provide plenty of laughs. The film showing will be on Wednesday April 25th (Matt's b'day for anyone wanting to buy him a present!) at 8.30 after usual evening bowls / table tennis and as always is…

Free Xmas Movie – It’s a Wonderful Life, Saturday 23rd December, 2pm

Free Xmas Movie – It’s a Wonderful Life, Saturday 23rd December, 2pm

Film Club
For the 2nd film at your Community Club given the season, what better time to show Frank Capra’s Xmas classic ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ on Saturday 23rd December at 2pm (doors open 1.30pm). I know most of you will be familiar with the story of George Bailey (played in a heart breaking performance by James Stewart), a man in deep despair who is shown an alternate reality of how his family and friends would have been affected if he had never been born. However, given it was released in 1946, how many of you would have been around and had the chance to see it on the big screen - apart from maybe some of the committee members!? So please, come along and share one of the all-time great films with…

Film Club first screening announced

Film Club first screening announced

Film Club
We are delighted to invite you to the inaugural film night at Greville Smyth Community Bowls Club on Thursday 23rd November (Doors open 7pm, film starts 8pm).  For the opening night to show off our new 106 inch screen, what better film to select than Crackerjack, the ‘best bowling film ever made’* (admittedly not a large amount of competition!). Although little known in the UK, it was the highest grossest film in Australia in the year of its release and received the following recommendation in the Sydney Morning Herald - 'a good-natured comedy...in which there's a nostalgia for our lost honour....this nostalgia for an Australia of mateship and communal spirit is the film's main surprise’. So please come along to support your community club, brush up on your bowling lingo, learn to differentiate…
