New film club launching in Ely

PUBLISHED: 08:23 16 March 2015

A new film club is set to launch next month in Ely.

Organisers of the Babylon Film Club say they will be showing award-winning arts house and foreign language films not previously seen in the city.

The club will run at the Babylon Gallery, in Waterside, and is set to launch on Friday, March 27.

Allison Morris, who is running the club, said: “Our launch film on March 27 will be the multi-award winning Boyhood.

“It won best film and best director awards at both the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs. Patricia Arquette won best supporting actress at the Golden Globe, BAFTA and Oscars for her role in the film.”

The club will meet monthly and a bar will be available for guests to enjoy a glass of wine or beer with the films.

The club will be limited to 50 members and will show 10 films a year. Other films planned in our first six months are Ida, ’71, Big Eyes, Lucy and Nightcrawler.

For more information, contact Allison on or pick up a leaflet at the gallery or Ely Cinema.
