It's a nice idea.

When the David Lean cinema closed in Croydon, that was the end of independent cinema anywhere in this corner of Surrey/SW London. We mostly have a truly dreadful range of multiplex chains, especially in Sutton, where the Empire is about as bad as it gets. There's now the Curzon/HMV in Wimbledon, which is pricey and a chain cinema, but at least the attitude is good. Otherwise, the next realistic alternative is the BFI Southbank. A 13-mile train ride to watch decent films?!

I hope this film club does well. It's just... well, 'Blue Jasmine' and 'The Artist' are films that were available in several local cinemas when they came out. Maybe they're playing safe to test the water, but I'd like to see a film club showing the stuff (not even particularly obscure) that NEVER reach the local Odeons/etc. Still, good for them!
