5. Treasurer's Report - The club's finances continue to be robust despite a very broken year, as ongoing costs are very low. Full accounts were not yet available from the auditor. The year started with a balance of £27,000, of which approximately £3000 was owed to distributors. The year ended with a balance of over £26,000, including £3000 which still has not been claimed by the distributors. The major costs were Alhambra hire and film costs. £3000 was made in ticket sales despite only a few films being shown. The three films shown so far this season have all made a profit.
