Film Evening 2016
November 18, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Society’s 2016 Film Evening will be held on Friday 18th November 2016 at Baden-Powell House, 65-67 Queen’s Gate, London, SW7 5JS, on the corner with the Cromwell Road. The nearest Underground stations are South Kensington and Gloucester Road on the District and Circle Lines. There is plenty of parking in Queen’s Gate, which is metered to 6.30pm. Don’t forget you may have to pay the congestion charge.
Members and their guests may opt to attend the film presentation only at £10.00, or to join us for buffet refreshments from 6.15pm in the Assembly Hall on the ground floor at a cost of £25.00 per head. There will be a cash bar. We will start the film presentation at 7.15pm.
Our host Matthew J. Elliott makes a welcome return. He is a scriptwriter well known for the US radio series “The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes”. Matthew provided the adaptations of The Yellow Face and The Three Students for the Society.
The title of this year's event is To See Ourselves As Others See Us, and will be based around foreign language depictions of the Great Detective.
After the very favourable response to the first episode of the recent Russian series when it was screened two years ago, Igor Petrenko and Andrei Panin return as Holmes and Watson in a film-length adaptation of The Sign of Four, intriguingly entitled Rock, Paper, Scissors.
There'll also be a few treats and surprises before we round off the evening with something of which you are unlikely to have ever seen the like – a 2014 Japanese puppet show based on Sherlock Holmes! Seeing is truly believing!
Applications should be sent to arrive not later than Saturday 12th November.
