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.

8.00 pm. Laurence Olivier & Dustin Hoffman star in John Schlesinger’s Oscar Nominated version of William Goldman’s Best Seller. Hoffman plays an innocent, unwittingly trapped and drawn into a game of intrigue involving a sadistic Nazi fugitive (Olivier – nominated best actor in a supporting role). This movie is an absolute nail-biter, and not ideal for those who aren’t too keen on Dental appointments. It is 2 Hours of edge of seat excitement.
“Hoffman and arch-villain Olivier are superb)” Leonard Maltin
“..Intelligent and largely satisfying thriller…” Newsweek
(English subtitles available). Film Mosaic is open to anyone, why not bring a friend? As usual there will be time for an informal discussion or a chat with friends with tea, coffee and biscuits after the screening. Donations for our chosen charity would be appreciated if you care to give.
