How about a ‘Premier’ every Sunday?
Any film-enthusiasts out there? Introducing Enlighten flim society, a membership club where you can watch private screenings of films which would otherwise not be shown in mainstream cinemas. In Spain they are known as Cineclubs, and in Germany they are known as Film clubs. And we here’s our very own in Mumbai.
Their idea is to screen the greatest films, from all genres, that the world has ever seen. Right from All Time Masterpieces never seen before in India on the big screen, to contemporary cults, action, comedy, romantic, drama, foreign language films, animation, documentaries, great commercial successes, children’s films, compilation of short films from all over the world, award winning films and much more. So get that popcorn and soda and settle in to watch some of the greats!
