Any member of the Jávea U3A can join this group by emailing sat.cine@u3ajavea.org with their name(s) and email address. At the moment we have 300 plus members.

We meet monthly at The Javea Players Studio to meet our friends new and old with a free drink and some nibbles prior to viewing a specially selected film or two which are non-violent with a happy ending. We think it is most important that you go home feeling happy.   James Ward is our projectionist, and Jen Kellow Ward runs our bar. 

We open the doors at 19:30 and we start the show at 20:00. To cover our overheads there is a €2.50 admission charge.

We email all Satcine members with details of the next social evening by 10:00 on the Saturday morning two weeks before the show.To book in you must send your request by email to sat.cine@u3ajavea.org. Please put this address in CONTACTS as that way we get a clear list of requests for seats.  PLEASE DO NOT USE YOUR REPLY BUTTON as your request may easily be missed. The first 50 people to reply get an email to confirm seats.  To turn up on the night is not an option. After the first 50 we operate a waiting list.

Be aware that we often get fully booked within the day of notification.

but you need to book now if you wish to join us

Spring has sprung and that is when a young mans thoughts are fancy free
but its not just young men its yours and ours. What shall we do next?

Shall we Dance? (2004).

Most of us will remember real ballroom dancing with pretty girls or smart young men.
Why did we do it? Because it was a good way to pass the time, to listen to
provocative music and songs and  with a bit of luck get a date. As you know you really
needed to attend dancing classes if you wanted to make a real impression.
The stars in this show Richard Gere, Jennifer Lopez, Susan Sarandon had to learn
to dance before they could make this film. We read that they worked many hours
to reach the standard they did. We were most impressed.

Join us by booking a seat.


Please remember to tell us what drink you would like.


We look forward to hearing from you.

John and Beryl.
