The 2018/19 season

This year's collection of 12 films is made up of quality films that have received critical acclaim. As usual, we have tried to produce a programme that reflects the best of films from around the world.

We have films from USA, Israel/France, Italy, Russia, France/Germany, Zambia as well as the UK. Our criteria for selecting the films have been quality and variety. On the whole, we have selected films that you might not have had the chance to see in mainstream cinemas locally. This year's "classic" movie in our programme is  A Matter of Life and Death, made in 1946 and starring the iconic David Niven.

All films start at 7.45pm - Doors open normally at 7.15pm

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the increased popularity of our films and to ensure that members get a seat, guests will only be able to claim their seat after 7.30pm. From 7.30 onwards it is first come, first served.
