Act One Film Society

The Act One Film Society launched in January 2016 as a spin-off subgroup of Chapter One, in order to allow interested group members to enjoy and discuss great cinema.  The group focuses primarily on classic or influential films, or movies with a cult following. 

Each month, Act One watches two films selected by group members, and discussion takes place online.  The films currently scheduled are noted below.
