Many films were not shown in Belfast while the Colonial Theatre was closed. As a break from summer blockbusters, this series is a catch-up with what we might have missed.

Three comedy/dramas have been chosen from around the world: China, Bhutan, and “merrie olde” England.

There will be short introductions and a discussion at the end of each movie. This free series, co-sponsored with the Belfast Free Library, is a chance for the public to learn more about the upcoming offerings at Senior College.

Registration is OPTIONAL for this FREE course. We welcome you to sign up to let us know you are coming, or you may just drop in at one or more sessions.
