Where We Are:

Welman Street Film Society

 With the coming of larger home TV screens and the increasing availability of films on DVD, Stan & Rebecca and Max & Gael thought it would be nice to share some classic cinema with each other – old favourites as well as films that we knew only by reputation. So the Welman Street Film Society was born as we alternated choices of films and enjoyed them over nibbles and a few drinks.

Soon we decided that a sort of occasional mini “film festival” would be fun, with the alternating hosts choosing the day’s theme, the films and creating appropriate meals.

 We’re now on to our 48th film and recently had a most enjoyable 3rd Welman Street Film Festival, looking at international caper/heist films from the 1950s.
