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.

2015 Season


December 12 & 13

Topper Returns

Topper Returns (the best of the Topper screwball comedy series) boasts a topnotch cast of character actors/comedians. Star Joan Blondell is joined by Roland Young, Billie Burke, Eddie “Rochester” Anderson, Patsy Kelly, George Zucco, Carol Landis & H. B. Warner. Those scene stealers are not alone on a dark and stormy night. There’s a ghost, creepy servants, a dumb detective, a creaky old mansion with secret panels, the murder victim and the murderer. Chills plus a lot of fun!


Topper Returns is a fine example of a “B” movie so well made that it approaches an “A” in professionalism. A snappy script directed by Roy Del Ruth and photographed by Norbert Brodine, this final Topper movie was filmed in 1941 at Hal Roach Studios (home to Laurel & Hardy). In those days, the Academy Awards almost never recognized the small independent studios, but Roy Seawright (special effects) and Elmer Raguse (sound) were nominated for Oscars.
