Film Club

The Film Club in 2018 will bring a few surprises  as we strive to please the variety of requests from our members. 

We plan to have Film nights at the Trak as well as a couple of different venues, as well as a MATINEE. And for those of you who like the thought of a country getaway, we will be organising a group to our Mid North Branch for a Film night at Blyth Cinema later in the year

As always we will give you plenty of notice from our website; as well as  by email, Face Book or Snail Mail about the Film sessions

We will continue to offer all our guests a pre-film complimentary glass of wine in foyer.

Next Film Night - Monday 13th August at The Trak Cinema, 6pm for 6.30pm start followed by optional Chinese banquet at The Empress Restaurant.

THE RETURN OF THE HERO (M) A good old fashioned, award winning French comedy by Laurent Tirard with English subtitles. This comedic French period piece set in 1809 France is about an accidentally over-praised soldier, starring Oscar winner Jean Dujardin (The Artist) and Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds). The film is written and directed by Laurent Tirard. "Captain Neuville (Dujardin) is sent out to the front line, leaving behind a heartbroken bride. Having heard no news of the young captain, the bride’s sister Elisabeth (Laurent) writes to her on his behalf to cheer her up. Fabricating a heroic tale of Neuville’s daring journey, her storybegins to unravel when Neuville unexpectedly reappears in less than valiant circumstances." (French Film Festival).

Literary Night

Literary Night Tuesday, 21st August from 6.30pm to 9.00pm at the PUBLIC SCHOOLS CLUB, 207 EAST TERRACE (corner of Carrington Street), ADELAIDE.

Our guest speaker spent many years of his youth in the Western District of Victoria, attending Hamilton College and moving among many of the families in the area. An author and journalist, he has also been a broadcaster and television host, becoming a well-known media identity, and is a lifelong racing fanatic. He has lived in London, Sydney and Melbourne, and now lives in South Australia with his partner, Sarah, on a vineyard and horse-breeding property in the Adelaide Hills. He is Richard Zachariah

The Vanished Land is the Western District of Victoria stripped of its identity, its social elite of grazing dynasties departed for their own reasons. This melancholy exodus has increased recently as the myriad pressures of holding inherited land have become intolerable in a nation never intimidated by ditching its past. No longer is the Western District home of a ruling class that for 150 years bestrode an Australia riding on the sheep’s back. The Vanished Land is a human tale of leaving, of a disconnect with the land, of submerged anguish and inhibited grief, a private story of loss told for the first time by an outsider with insider connections.

With Cheryl Appelkamp de Valenzuela as Convenor and Michael Bollen as guest compere.
