SPBC member Brian has arranged for us to meet at 6:30 for pre-movie snacks and Petrel fellowship before we enjoy our feature presentation, “Study in Scarlet” (1968) starring Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Stock as Dr. Watson.
The movie will begin at 7:30, after a brief intro by our own SPBC “Priory Schoolmaster” Peter W., MBt, BSI.
