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 December 18
8.00 pm. War Crimes Commissioner agent Wilson (Edward G Robinson) is tracking down Franz Kindler, a Nazi Holocaust Mastermind (Orson Welles), who has escaped justice by changing his identity, becoming a teacher and melding into the sleepy society of Harper Connecticut. By tracking down the Nazi’s contacts and chasing down the clues one by one, the Agent closes in for the kill. Directed by Orson Welles himself in 1947; this is an intriguing movie, which was Oscar nominated for best original story and earned Welles a nomination at the 1947 Venice Film Festival. Filmed in Black & White don’t miss this little known gem from one of Hollywood’s masters. (Subtitles NOT available)
As usual there will be time for an informal discussion or a chat with friends with tea or coffee and a biscuit or two after the screening.
