From January 2016 Tufnell Park Film Club will be held at The Star on Chester Road.
After three-and-a-half years at the Lord Palmerston we've decided to move. Throughout its various management changes we've been able to show films for you at least every two weeks there without too much bother and for that we are extremely grateful.
In the recent months while The Lord Palmerston has had the decorators in we've relocated at very short notice to The Star on Chester Road (long-time members may remember we actually had a few screenings there back in 2013 when the Palmerston's function room was last revamped).
Duncan, the landlord at The Star, as well as his staff, have been wonderfully accommodating to us on these occasions, and on reflection we've decided that his pub will be a better place to host Tufnell Park Film Club from now on.
If you've not been to one of our recent screenings there, the upstairs room at The Star now has nice new curtains (not pictured) so it feels very cosy. One thing we've always enjoyed about The Star is that it has an HD projector and a good amp. And by January it will have a lovely new screen which is larger than the Lord Palmerston's so films there will also look and sound better and bigger than ever.
Very generously Duncan is offering all film club members a 20% food discount on a film club night (with no need to book your meal in advance) and 10% off food at all other times. All you will have to do is show a valid membership card when you order.
Our first film as permanent residents at The Star will be Sunset Boulevard on Tuesday 5 January. Coincidentally it was up for the vote at our very first screening in August 2012 (the link - films referenced in The Player).
Our ever-popular quarterly film quiz will also be back at The Star on Sunday 10 January.
It hasn’t been an easy decision (as regular members will no doubt be able to confirm; thanks for putting up with our dithering) but now that we've made it we are very excited about January and picking up where we left off. We are sure that you'll appreciate the hospitality at The Star and continue to enjoy watching films with us there on Tuesday evenings.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns do just post them below or send us an email.
And lastly, a sincere thanks for your patience and support throughout 2015: it has been appreciated. Roll on 2016!
Nigel and Wayne
