Text Box: We invite you to join

The Albuquerque Film Club is open to everyone of any age who enjoys watching movies on a big screen in the company of other film lovers and then sharing observations about what they have seen. All that is needed is the interest and an email address for notifications. This is a social rather than scholarly group, although some members know a lot about motion pictures while others wish to expand their appreciation.
The AFC will host movies at the Guild Cinema one weekend every two months, Saturday and Sunday matinees. After the screening, we invite everyone to join us to gab about movies and meet fellow film fans. Ticket prices for the matinees will be $5 per person.
Our purpose is to revive interesting films from silent classics to productions of the big studio era to intimate independent films of more recent years—comedies, dramas, film noir, fantasy, adventure. While most of the movies we screen will be English language, we shall include intriguing films from abroad. The films you attend will help choose future programs in the AFC series.

To join Albuquerque Film Club send your name, address and phone number via email to:

You will be added to our email list and receive notifications of upcoming AFC monthly screenings and other events. AFC/AVM does not share mailing lists with anyone, ever.

Paths of Glory (1957)

Anti-war film to honor actor, filmmaker and activist Kirk Douglas on his 100th birthday.

Written & directed by Stanley Kubrick.

Someone is trying to kill Casablanca hotel manager Groucho, but he doesn’t know it. He pursues femme fatales and insults everyone in sight. Chico knows that all the recent managers of the hotel were murdered, so he appoints himself and Harpo as Groucho’s bodyguards, but only part time because Chico is also busy with his Yellow Camel cab service, conducting the hotel band, shooting the piano keys and communicating with Harpo through charades. Harpo plays Liszt on his harp when he isn’t spying on his employer—a disguised Nazi on the lam (Sig Ruman) who is searching the hotel for a hidden cache of stolen jewels and paintings that Harpo has discovered... But the Marx Brothers … Oh, well, you’ll just have to see the movie. Night in Casablanca was the last true Marx Brothers movie, and it’s a lot of fun.
