Screening on Saturday 21st May 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 21st 2022

Last week our attendees discovered why we always say “expected program” in these bulletins – there was a last minute change, in that we added a curious little preview item after the Late Break, and pushed an episode of “Cells at Work: Black” to this week. Don’t we make life exciting?
It seems like everyone adjusted well to the new Winter early hours program we started last week. Good thing too, as the Winter weather and darkness dropped in. We will keep these Winter hours until September.

This is another reminder to think about the upcoming Annual General Meeting and committee elections in July. We request that all signed up members come along that afternoon to find out how the current committee have been doing over the last year, discuss issues to be dealt with, raise motions for actions to be carried out in your names, and then in the evening Dinner Break, vote in the new committee.

As well as out normal regular items, we will also screen two preview episodes this week. Firstly, for the sake of World Peace, a master Spy must create a loving, fake family. And secondly, see the Prisoner’s Dilemma played out amongst five classmates.
We also have the final episode of “Fena: Pirate Princess”.
