Hogsback Movie Club November Movie

This month our Movie club will be meeting again back at the very special Rose Theatre (weather permitting) at 18:30  at the Starways Art Centre. This amazing open-air theatre, built in the forest is indeed a unique location for our movie club.

The club is open to all (entry fee R30 to cover electricity and wood).  A list of 5 movies from 5 different genres will be circulated to members beforehand, who will then vote as they arrive for their 1st and second choices of the movie they would like to see. The movie with the most votes will then be screened after which we will have a lively discussion about the movie!

Bring your own picnic basket or come and braai or just come for the movie which will start at 19h30.  The braai fires will be lit at 18h00.
