BACK TO
Quarterly Classics: What makes a film a 'classic' - stars? director? awards? decades of affection? Bracknell Film Society aims to answer this question at least partially in a new regular three monthly slot. The 'FILM LISTINGS' web page will keep you appraised of what is coming next.

A complete BFS showing list from 1960 is available through
the 'HISTORY' ICON at the top of this page.

Links to our previous shows in 2015, 2016 and 2017
are also given at the foot of this page.

A lonely fisherman hooks more than he bargained for.

DECEMBER
Tuesday 11th - 7.30pm
certificate PG
Director: Mel Brooks, US, 1967, 85 minutes
Cast:Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder, Kenneth Mars
Producers Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom attempt to create a sure-fire flop as part of a get-rich-quick scheme. Brooks's inspired bad taste is as gaspingly funny today as when made - if not funnier. Bracknell Film Society was one of the first (of few) UK organisations to show The Producers on the film's release. This screening marks the re-release of the re-digitised film.

The Producers still holds its grip…Mostel and Wilder are sublime GUARDIAN
