It is a fun and rewarding experience, take it from me I caught the bug over 5 years ago now and have never looked back.
Watching a film alone can be a deeply emotional experience. Watching a film together the experience is shared and in many ways more meaningful. As a group who watch a film together we now have this shared experience in common. Through this common ground we can develop strong bonds and friendships which may carry us through our lives

Jonas Jonasson’s witty, feel-good international best-seller gave pleasure to millions and proved that it is never too late to let a little adventure in your life. The eagerly awaited screen version stars Robert Gustafson as the Zelig-like Allan Karlsson who quietly escapes from the celebrations for his one hundredth birthday and takes to the road. Little misunderstandings and unfortunate coincidences soon find him in possession of a suitcase of cash and being hotly pursued by crooks and criminals. It’s hardly going to trouble a man who played a vital role in making the atomic bomb, has known several world leaders and participated in some of the key events of the last century. An outrageous delight. - Glasgow Film Festival 2013
