Some comments from last season’s members:

“My first season, and what an awesome season that was! I’ve seen so many films that wouldn’t normally appear on my radar and I consider myself more fulfilled because of it! It’s been an educating, entertaining and enthralling 9 months!” C.M.

“I joined last year to see non-UK films that are infrequently shown elsewhere. The films I saw were breathtakingly beautiful; the range of subject matter, plot and photography were amazing.” R.J.

“15 diverse films from around the world – on the big screen, on our doorstep, and all for under £3.50 a film! For a film-lover this has to be the best deal around.” – J. F.

“An invigorating injection of culture in your local theatre! Prepare to be challenged, surprised, moved and entertained by a unique selection of films, all informatively introduced.” C.L.

Membership also includes programme notes and voting slips.

We look forward to seeing you for our 2015/16 season of films.
