Inside Llewyn Davis (15)

Inside Llewyn DavisWhen do artists cut their losses and abandon their careers? You can size up this early 1960s time capsule from the writer-directors of ‘The Big Lebowski’ and ‘No Country for Old Men’ from all sorts of angles. Is it a sideways look at a music scene? A melancholic but extremely funny riff on what it was like to be a struggling folk singer in Manhattan in 1961 who didn’t go the way of Bob Dylan? A love letter to the absurdities of being an artist? You could even, at a stretch, call it a slippery, askew glance at Dylan himself. Bob’s here in spirit, and if you look hard enough, maybe even in person.. read more 

Before the film starts, there will be a short AGM.

Commemoration for the start of WW1

This season, the Club marks the centenary of the start of the First World War by showing Paths of Glory on November 10.  As part of the Mayor of Chelmsford’s charity fund raising this year in support of the Royal British Legion, a bucket collection will be taken at the end of the film.  We shall also be giving members and guests the chance to contribute to the charity appeal at the end of the first three films of the season before showing Stanley Kubrick’s great film, just in case they can’t make the screening on the 10th. You may like to note that the Workers’ Education Association will also be screening the film at the Cramphorn on November 11th.
