Phantom of the Open

Wednesday
January 24 @ 7pm

It’s a “hole in one” for Oscar-winning actor Mark Rylance (Maurice Flitcroft), Sally Hawkins (Jean Flitcroft) and director, Craig Roberts, whose witty comic driving and putting make this film one of the most heart-warming and entertaining films ever.  It is loosely based on the true-life story of Maurice Flitcroft, a ship yard crane operator, who had never played a round of golf in his life, until competing in the 1976 British Open.  Join director Craig Robert’s fan club for his charmingly improbable champion.

Freud’s Last Session

Wednesday
February 7 @ 7pm

Highly charged Intellectually, emotionally and politically, this film frames an impressive debate at a fictional meeting between two great minds, the elderly world-famous psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud and the soon-to-be world-famous theologian, young Oxford don, C. S. Lewis. Based on Mark St Germain’s 2009 stage play that is, in turn, based on the psychiatrist, Dr. Armand Nicholi’s The Question of God; the terminally ill Freud and war veteran Lewis suffering trauma from WW1, speculate on the often contentious relationship of science to religion, and question the existence of God.

One Life

Wednesday
April 10 @ 7pm

While cleaning up his office, Nicholas Winton rediscovered folders documenting hundreds of Jewish children whom he had saved from the Nazi regime in Czechoslovakia.  On a visit to Prague in 1938, the mild-mannered young stockbroker began to make plans to rescue the young refugees who were already in perilous condition. He returned to London, to enlist his mother, Babette Winton to help fundraise and argue with hide-bound bureaucrats, in order to obtain the requisite visas and family placements needed to relocate the Jewish children to the UK.
