Slaley Film Club shows one film each month, usually on the third Friday, but we have a summer break with no films from June to August. We also provide a supper, but not drinks, during the interval for an inclusive charge of £5 (£3 for under-16s). We feel that this makes the evening more attractive and more of a social event. If you would like to receive our emails about forthcoming films, please send a request to Michael Elphick.
Organised by: Jean & Michael Elphick, Anne Lishman, Jeannie & Jason Abdelnoor, Jane & Jim Bailey.
We also publish our annual summary of accounts, and those available are listed below:
We’d like to hear what you think of some of the films that we are considering, and perhaps suggest some of your own favourites. To help with this, we may provide a brief online poll for these films from time to time.
The results of such polls will be announced here, and by email to our regular audience.

The club started out in 2004, inspired by the Queen’s Hall “Screen 1” initiative led by Christo Wallers. Since then we have had seven successful seasons, thanks to the continued support of the Queen’s Hall Arts programme, and our loyal audience. In October 2008 the Hall had its own equipment (projector, amplifier, DVD player and screen) installed by the Queen’s Hall staff; we provided some £350 of this cost from our accumulated profits, and now handle all the projection ourselves. Audience numbers have increased from around 20-25 initially to an average of 36 last season, and a maximum of 49.
The choice of films is basically made by the organisers, with some input from others. Our aim has always been to include a fairly wide variety of films, and to introduce people to some that they might not otherwise think of seeing.
