Due to the popluarity of this film on release the last trip out to see it didn’t quite go to plan.  I have decided to give it another go!!!

It’s arranged for Thursday 1 March at 8.30 pm at Ashton Cineworld. We will meet in the bar from 8 o’clock onwards. It may be advisable to buy your tickets in advance if possible which can be done online or in person at the ticket machines in the foyer.

I look forward to seeing you and if possible, could you drop me an email to let me know you are going so I can keep an eye out for you at cathrynmcdowell@gmail.com

Thanks

Woman in Black

Ashton Cineworld Wednesday 15 February 2012 Film starts at 7.30 pm Running time 95 minutes Certificate 12A

I originally planned this for 22 February as announced at January’s meeting. There is now a change of plan and it has been rearranged for Wednesday 15 February.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe as a young widower sent to a remote area to deal with estate of a recently deceased client, it is a chilling ghost story based on Susan Hill’s bestselling book and adapted from the stage play, which is the second longest running play in the West End.  The book group read the book in January and it was a resounding success.

We’ll be meeting upstairs in the bar area from 7 pm. You can purchase your tickets on the night and its Orange Wednesday. Anyone with an Orange mobile network can text 241 where you will receive a code entitling you to a free ticket for the show when purchasing a full price ticket.

The Wedding Singer

George Lawton Hall, Mossley Tuesday 17 April 2012 at 7.30 pm Tickets £10 each

The show is based on the 1998 film with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore but has a completely original score and was performed on Broadway in 2006.

Past shows by MAODS have been a great hit such as Little Voice and Beauty and the Beast. Tickets have to be paid for in advance and further details will be announced at the March meeting.

If you are interested in any of the above please let me know at cathrynmcdowell@gmail.com or subgroups@saddleworthwi.com and hope to see you there.

Thanks

As a result Vanger invites him to his remote island to help solve at 40 year-old mystery involving the disapperance of his beloved niece.  As the plot thickens, Lisbeth finds herself drawn in and eventually teams up with Blomkvist to uncover an astonishing truth.

Please be aware, for anyone who hasn’t read the book, that there will be some shocking scenes in the film. It’s running time is 158 minutes and is a certificate 18.

A Happy New Year to all our Readers!

The next meeting of the Book Group is at 7.30 on Wednesday Jan 11th in the Conservative Club, Uppermill.

This month’s book is The Woman in Black by Susan Hill. A ghost story of extra-ordinary spine-chillingness, it’s the perfect book to read in front of the fire on a miserable winter’s afternoon – but probably best NOT read after dark………………….. Plenty of time to read it before the meeting since it’s only 140 pages long.

The book for next month is The Ice is Singing by Jane Rogers:

This is the story of a woman on the run from her husband, her children, herself. Driving through the snowbound Yorkshire countryside, stopping at anonymous bed and breakfasts, prepared to do anything to duck memory, she begins to write stories. Not about her own life, but about other parents, other children: stories to keep her own life at bay . . .

‘A brilliant and concentrated piece of writing.’ Robert Nye, Guardian

Amazingly enough, there are no reader reviews or ratings for it on Amazon. Read it & be the first to publish a review!

Happy new year to everyone!

Don’t forget our first meeting of 2012 is taking place on Wednesday 4th January at 7.30pm for a prompt 8pm start.

We will be having a quiz night and tickets will also be available to purchase for FELICITY ASTON: Explorer,  speaker,  author,  Thursday 16th February 2012 at 7.30pm, Millgate Arts Centre, Delph.

You will also be able to pay your subs for 2012 so don’t forget your cheque books.
