Meeting Venue

Jávea Players Studio.


Meeting Day and Time Usually 2nd Saturday of the month.
19:30 for 20:00 See schedule below

Satcine is the Saturday social club of the Javea U3A

Any member of the Jávea U3A can join this group by emailing sat.cine@u3ajavea.org with their name(s) and email address.

We meet monthly at The Jávea Players Studio as they have a very good built-in projector.  James, a Jávea U3A and Jávea Players member, is our projectionist. The Studio is behind what was Book World, now closed. Starting from the pueblo Mercadona, cross the road to Book World, turn up the street, turn right, then right again to get behind Book World, proceed 50m and the Studio is on your right.

We open the doors at 19:30 which allows time for a free drink, nibbles and a chat with old and new friends. To cover our overheads there is a €2.50 admission charge. Jen, also a Jávea U3A  and Jávea Players member, runs the bar and all drinks are free. How does this work?  When you email your request for a booking you must order your drink. No request, no drink. We then buy in enough for one drink but there may be enough left for another drink until it is all gone. The choice is Wine - red, white, rosé or cava. Beer - con or sin.  Orange or water.

The films, which start at 20:00, are non-violent, thought provoking with a happy ending. We think it is most important that we go home feeling happy.

These criteria can be difficult to find but with the help of our members we have been very successful. Thank you to all who have helped in the film hunt.

We email all Satcine members with details of the next social evening two Saturdays before the show between 9:00 and 9:30. If you wish to come  you must send your request by email to sat.cine@u3ajavea.org. Please put this address in your "Contacts" and use it. PLEASE DO NOT USE YOUR REPLY BUTTON as this makes things complicated for us and your request may get missed. The first 50 people to reply will get an email confirmation of their booking.  To turn up on the night is not an option. We do, if necessary, operate a waiting list as for sure someone will have to drop out, but rest assured all those who wish to come will get a reply. We do get fully booked very quickly.
