The Bayley Film Club

As we all are stuck on our cozy sofas, stocking up on toilet paper and hunting for delivery slots from local supermarkets – I have decided to use this extra time saved from commuting to work and not being able to go pub hopping and explore what restaurants have to offer & start a Film Club. As sophisticated as it sounds it is a small operation that initially was designed to fit inside of my small apartment and involve only two members (including myself!). However, as quarantine stepped in across the world, I thought why not make it a more organized activity?

So here we are, launching the Bayley Film Club! The objective is very simple. I have created a list of directors consisting of 65 names. Every week we will perform a lottery to pick a name. Then I will share two films from the selected director that we (my boyfriend and I) personally find interesting (one each). Everyone is welcome to participate – either by watching & sharing their thoughts about the films or about the director in general.

The name

The Bayley is a building in Manchester city center that used to be a prison – with all the lockdowns and people being forced to isolate I thought it would be accurate.

Week 1

The director selected for the initial round – Coen brothers.

Film 1: No Country for Old Man

Film 2: The Big Lebowski

What’s next?

I will share our brief reviews on both films here each week and the ones mentioned above are coming very soon! Stay tuned!

Stay home & stay safe everyone!
