WASHING MACHINE IS A SAFE SPACE
We take audience safety very seriously at The Hunter Club, and strongly believe that gigs can and should be safe spaces, free from harassment, intimidation, prejudice, bullying and violence. We expect that all artists, crew, venue staff and attendees will respect our values, and we have a zero tolerance policy towards those who do not. Anyone who endangers the enjoyment and safety of others at a Washing Machine night will be ejected and barred. It is unfortunate that in 2019/20 we still have to say this stuff, but we hope that by doing so we can help to create an atmosphere where everyone feels safe and able to enjoy themselves.

The Big Chill: Bury St. Edmunds Film Society

Comedy drama written and directed by Lawrence Kasdan, starring Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt, Kevin Kline and Meg Tilly. A group of friends who attended university together in the 1960s gather for the funeral of one from their group, Alex. Now in their thirties, they have kept in touch over the years, but several have drifted apart as some now live successful lives. With Alex’s much younger and socially naive girlfriend, Chloe (Tilly), the friends spend the weekend together at Harold (Kline) and Sarah’s (Close) holiday home following the funeral. In the light of Alex’s unexplained death, they discuss their lives and collective relationships with each other, then, now and what the future holds. Known for its ensemble cast, perceptive insights, and one of the decade’s best film soundtracks, The Big Chill won the Toronto International Film Festival People’s Choice Award and Writers Guild of America Award for Best Comedy. Although nominated for three Academy Awards (Inc Best supporting actress Glenn Close and best screenplay) the best picture Oscar went to Terms of Endearment.

Doors and bar open at 6.15pm. Film starts at 7pm
