Mosaic has two film and theatre groups that each meet monthly:
Mosaic Film meets monthly and offers film-lovers an opportunity to share this interest. A variety of films are shown, mostly of Jewish or Israeli interest, with some foreign-language films with English subtitles. Presentations have ranged from comedy to drama to documentary, and have included the following titles over the last 12 months:
Keeping up with the Steins, The Debt, Max, The Counterfeiters, The Infidel, Sarah’s Key, Imaginary Witness, Crossfire, Leon the Pig Farmer, Life is Beautiful, A Serious Man and The Lemon Tree.
The screenings start at 8pm at Bessborough Road, usually on the third Tuesday of the month, and are followed by a short discussion. Light refreshments are provided; a donation to a synagogue charity is appreciated.
Mosaic Cinema and theatre group was set up in 2018 by a group of parents of teenagers / 20s with a passion for film and theatre. The group gets together to go to the cinema for current showings, theatre outings, and in homes and at Bessborough Road to watch films. The group mostly meets on the first Tuesday of each month, with theatre outings mostly at short notice – arranged through our Mosaic cinema and theatre Facebook group.

Tuesday July 31
These two Classic black and white films released in 1955, are being shown back to back in a unique Film Mosaic Double Bill. A Kid for Two Farthings (Directed by Carol Reed and written by Wolf Mankowitz) shows a nostalgic glimpse of life in the East End and includes the likes of Diana Dors, Celia Johnson and David Kossoff. The Bespoke Overcoat is also from the pen of Wolf Mankowitz and again stars David Kossoff, this time alongside Alfie Bass. These are lovely movies invoking a “sense of Jewishness”, humour, spirituality and warmth. Because of their combined running time (130 minutes) we will be starting at 7:45 pm (No Subtitles available)
