Hi folks

From time to time there are interesting films shown at QFT but evening showings do not suit me or, I suspect, many of your members. I asked if they would consider a matinee once a month on the basis that I would put the details on the regional and Downe websites and they have agreed to this.

The first such offering is “It’s a Wonderful Life” at 3.30 on Monday 22nd December and on Tuesday 23rd at 3.00.

Can you please let your members know that a monthly QFT matinee will be available for a few months, with details on the regional website.
