Details:An extraordinary performance from Maria Callas who stars as the high priestess whose love is threatened by corrupt political ambition.

Event:A screening of "The Long Goodbye"
Organised by:Brentwood Arts Cinema Club
Location:Brentwood United Reformed Church, New Road, Brentwood CM14 4GD map
Details:Both the most intelligent of Chandler adaptations (along with Hawks' Big Sleep), and an ironic, defiant update, with Gould's loveable proto-slacker Marlowe - so laid-back as to be horizontal - still harbouring the ideals of an upright past. A delicious comment on change in the US; a critique of film noir mythology, and one of the 70s' finest movies.
Cost:£5.00 guest fee or £38.00 for a whole year of 11 films

Event:A screening of "Under The Skin"
Organised by:Brentwood Arts Cinema Club
Location:Brentwood United Reformed Church, New Road, Brentwood CM14 4GD map
Details:A mysterious female figure (Scarlett Johansson) cruises Glasgow's streets and roads, picking up men, hunted, or maybe abetted by equally strange motorcyclists. But nothing is as one expects, indeed little here is like anything we have seen before. Visually and narratively stunning, disturbing, haunting and intense; one of the finest films of the decade so far.
Cost:£5.00 guest fee or £38.00 for a whole year of 11 films

Organised by:Brentwood Arts Cinema Club
Location:Brentwood United Reformed Church, New Road, Brentwood CM14 4GD map
Details:Sweethearts Veronica and Boris, blissfully in love, are separated by the outbreak of war. He is sent to the front: communication stops. These are ordinary people in agony - except that in the soaring images of Uruzevsky's stunning cinematography, this has an almost transcendent quality. A superbly crafted drama, with impassioned performances.

Finally forced into cooperation, can they save their sheep and themselves from disaster?
