Film Club


The Film Club is held at the

Field Lodge Care Home,

London Rd,

St Ives 

Starting with light lunch at 1.30pm and film show at 2pm.

Contact Gordon if interested – only 14 places available.

The expectation is that our members will not normally arrive for the event before 1.15pm.

Field Lodge is a special category of venue as it is home to its residents.  This means  we have to be understanding and respect what is asked of us.

With the Home now full and many visitors to residents, we cannot normally expect that any parking slots will be available.  So you may need to park off site. If your passenger has a mobility issue, then drop them off and find parking nearby on the Old London Road.  Directions: exit and turn left towards St. Ives, turn left at the roundabout and then immediately turn left again. Drive to end of road – a dead-end at the garage. Take short walk to back to Field Lodge.

If you do find parking at Field Lodge then please ensure that you do not impede ambulance access. Please complete the visitors book including car registration no. if you are parked on site.

Leave No Trace

A "psychologically damaged" father affected by un-named horrors of war some years ago, then lost his wife. He was left for years to look after his daughter and is obsessed about caring for and educating her. She is a gentle, caring teenager, supporting her father, who is trying to retreat from the world.  The pair have hidden out in the woods from the authorities for years.  Once discovered, they want her "in school" and him in some gainful employment. The father, with his unacknowledged PTSD, is unable to settle into normal suburban life, and needs to run constantly from his demons from the past. Ultimately there is a poignant decision to be made, as daughter and father can no longer walk the same pathways.

One reviewer wrote “This is 2019's feel good film, yes you know the story, and yes you can figure out every possible turn even if you don't, but it's just such a lovely movie.
We get one man's journey of self-discovery and realisation of what's important, and we get the story of ten fishermen, who's talent is harnessed against all odds…”
