Tonight an un-ashamed “borrow” from ‘The Barge Blog’, Tricia Gurnett’s diary from the SSBR (Thank you Trish!) covering a nice and very new idea from SB Repertor, now a St Katharine Dock resident having given up on Faversham’s moorings.
“Interesting new idea from SB Repertor”, says Tricia, ” At her base in St Katharine Dock, London, she will be offering a Cinema Club.
This is something new, so the website doesn’t have a lot of content at the moment – no programme or gallery yet – but it does explain what it is all about. Called Floating Films and run by volunteers, it will show a wide selection of films, including features and documentaries, as well as special screenings with live music accompaniment and talks with key industry guests.
As a not-for-profit film club there will be a suggested donation of £5, and up to 40 people can be accommodated. So with limited space it will be necessary to book in advance. The bar will be open, and guests are invited to stay on after the screening for discussion or just to enjoy the atmosphere.
The club hopes to raise the profile of the survival of the barge fleet and this forgotten part of London history, whilst providing a unique arts venue for independent film events”.
Good luck with that, the Team on Repertor!
