Film Club

1984From September 2021, meetings are held every third MONDAY of the month at the Two Chairmen, 39 Dartmouth Street, SW1H 9BP, at 7 pm. The reason for this change is that Wednesday has replaced Friday as the busiest evening of the week for a lot of pubs whose customers are mainly office workers.

Nearest tube stations are St James Park (5 mins) and Westminster (10 mins) There is no charge, as the landlady of the Two Chairman kindly allows us to have the room for free, but we would ask that you buy at least one drink.

Over what is left of 2021 we will be showing the remaining three films of Dekalog, inspired by the Decalogue or Ten Commandments, as they are more usually known in English. 

Though each film is independent, most of them share the same setting in Warsaw in the late 1980s, and some of the characters are acquainted with each other. Each short film explores characters facing one or more moral or ethical dilemmas.

As we realise that this is not going to be everyone's cup of tea we are not running the whole series en bloc, but alternating them with other films.
