Event: Frankie Goes To Edinburgh – Indiegogo Campaign

After the success of The Misty Moon Film Society’s Spring tour of A Day In The Lives Of Frankie Abbott, we have been asked to perform the play at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. So we have launched an Indiegogo Campaign to help get FA up to the land of haggis, kilts, malt whiskey and deep fried Mars bars.  Please have a look at the campaign and if you can help us in anyway, even just to like and share it on social media that would be Bloody Brilliant.  Frankie Goes To Edinburgh…………

News: New Honorary Patron Emma Dark

Normally The Misty Moon Film Society would introduce a new Honorary Patron on Halloween as part of our birthday celebrations but this year is a little different.

I am so proud to announce that award winning actress Emma Dark has become one of our Honorary Patrons and joins Judy Matheson and David Barry as our delicious threesome, all watched over by our President Robin Askwith.

Emma will also be one of the Scream Queen Judges at this year’s Misty Moon International Film Festival at The Cinema Museum in October.

Venue: The Phoenix Artist Club

The Misty Moon Film Society is proud to announce that we will be holding our unique events at the prestigious Phoenix Artist Club in Covent Garden on the first Wednesday of every month from May 2016.

Turn onto Phoenix Street, off Charing Cross Road and you should spot the entrance to The Phoenix Artist Club and as Dick Van Dyke said in his best Cockney in Mary Poppins: “That there is what you might call a doorway to a place of enchantment.”  This is a fantastic venue and is perfect for The Misty Moon Film Society as it is so showbiz. More details to follow soon.
