Renown Film Club Newsletter!


Dear Club Members,

Well it’s been a great month for film history! Finally delighted to announce that our Full Listings are available in the RADIO TIMES! It’s been 2 years of nagging and a lot of letters and emails from you all as well, so thank you, it worked! More good news, we launched Talking Pictures TV on Virgin channel 445 last week – so Virgin customers can now watch us also. Virgin have decided that we are available to all subscribers of the MIX package and above. So tune in!

Tickets for our once in a lifetime event at Elstree Studios “The Boys” Reunion on Sunday 17th September 2pm with Dudley Sutton, Jess Conrad & Tony Garnett are selling fast, as you know it is a limited capacity at this venue and we are over half way sold, so if you were thinking about it, do purchase your ticket as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Just £20 with a free DVD of the film too. It is an event not to be missed. We have done a lot of research on hotels, car parks and trains. All this information will be sent to you when you purchase your ticket.

We’ve had many requests for B-Western Releases over the years, so it’s time to revert back to the Saturday Matinee days with this month’s release; The Early Cowboy Collection Volume 1. There is also a super greetings card bundle featuring some of our best loved stars and suitable for all occasions, our TPTV summer hat, a new tea towel featuring ‘stars at meal times’ and some great DVD Club Specials from our friends at Second Sight to complete the offers this month.

Best Wishes and many thanks as ever for all your support.

Noel, Sarah and Neill
