Film Club

Dekalog VIIIMeetings are held every third Wednesday of the month at the Two Chairmen, 39 Dartmouth Street, SW1H 9BP, at 7 pm. 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.

COVID-19 LATEST

The Two Chairmen has now re-opened, and all restrictions on indoor meeting have now been lifted.  However, it is probably not a good idea to cram too many people in, so please click on the Doodle poll link in the DATE for the film to let us know if you are coming.  The poll for any film will be closed when or if the maximum of 30 people is reached.
