Who can join the Movie Club?
Any person aged 15 or more can join. Everyone is welcome. The bigger the club, the more movies we can show at low prices and the more special events we can run.
Which movies will be shown in 2017?
A sub-committee has set the first year’s program (see overleaf). A mix of comedy, drama, romance, adventure, documentary and western movies has been selected, to appeal to a broad range of members. In the future, members will be invited to contribute to the program.
How much will it cost to join the Movie Club?
A membership fee of $70 ($65 for Health Care Card holders) will entitle you to see 10 carefully-selected movies in 2017. Seasonal (five movie) memberships of $40 ($35 concessional) are also available.
If I join the club, can I bring a guest to a movie?
Each member may bring up to two guests a year. Each guest may visit once only. Ask a committee member for more information.
Why do I have to join a club?
Why can’t I just buy a ticket at the door?
The club enables access to low royalties and keeps ticket prices low for everyone. One of the legal conditions of paying low royalties is that movies can only be shown to members of a movie club, not to the general public. If we did not form a club Growing Winchelsea Inc. would have to pay up to $300 in royalties for each movie, so ticket prices would be much higher and fewer movies could be shown.
When will movies be shown?
Opening night will be 2 March 2017. After that, movies will be shown on the third Thursday of every month. All movies will commence at 7.30 PM sharp.
Will there be any other benefits of membership?
After each movie, club members can stay for a light supper and an informal chat about the movie, if they choose. From time to time, special events will be held.
Will the Movie Club show any children’s movies?
The Movie Club is for people aged at least 15, however now The Globe is equipped to show movies Growing Winchelsea will be able to screen occasional family and children’s movies. Watch this space!
What is planned for opening night 2 March 2017?
On the gala opening night, enjoy watching The Full Monty, then stay for a celebratory supper including wine tasting, and a chat.
Where can I get a membership application form?
Membership application forms are available at the IGA supermarket and Maguire Butchers.
