Thanks A, in response and especially as regards the majority of the older films. If I lived fairly close to the Chapter, I have no doubt that I'd be there a lot more often, as it is, it's a long trek there and back (between 6-7 miles) and the timing, especially late screenings can be very inconvenient. That's why, unless it's something I really feel I have to see or a classic I've never seen, I strike them off the list.
The Seventh Seal stays because it's at a very convenient time (2.30pm) plus it's one I'd love to see on the big screen, I've seen all the other oldies apart from A Throw of Dice (1929), so hopefully I will catch that.
Re: Bad Film Club: Road House (1989), I love the concept of seeing a bad movie with a live commentary and a good atmosphere but again, the timing of the event makes it impractical. It is the "Patrick Swayze Movie" and I do remember seeing it years ago, it definitely fits in the "Bad Film" category, in fact dire would be a better description.
I will be seeing Lady Chatterly, but from the comfort and proximity of Cineworld, a multiplex theatre, really looking forward to this despite the running time, in fact from the brief notes from yourself and arsaib4, I'm beginning to wish it was the full version rather than the cut down theatrical release.
Re: Svankmajer, I've recently picked up the excellent BFI release, Jan Svankmajer: The Complete Short Films, I may see the features shown but I'm not 100% on that yet apart from Conspirators of Pleasure (1996) which I'll be doubling up with Reprise (2006).
My choices so far are as follows:
Dans Paris (2006) - 2.30 matinee
The Seventh Seal (1957) - 2.30 matinee
Tales from Earthsea (2006) - 2.30 matinee
12:08 East of Bucharest (2006) - 2.30 matinee
Zodiac (2007) - 2.30 matinee
Conspirators of Pleasure (1996)
Films by Humphrey Jennings (various) 5.00 matinee
Still under consideration
Itty Bitty Titty Committee (2007)
Beyond Hatred (2005)
A Throw of Dice (1929)
Lack of info:
The Walker (2007)
Calon Gaeth aka Small Country (2006)
As far as 2 Days in Paris (2007) and Edmond (2005) are concerned, they come at the end of Sept and may have better screening times in Oct, I'd definitely like to see 2 Days in Paris (2007) but I'm a little dubious about Edmond (2005).
A point I should mention, having seen dozens of John Wayne films I could very happily leave this mortal coil without ever having to see or hear him again.:lol
