Featured2017-18 Programme

We are currently working on the last few details of our new programme. Watch this space!

Between October 2017 and March 2018 the Guild will be showing over 60 films, three a week:

  • Sunday afternoon, usually starting at 4.30pm
  • Sunday evening, starting at 7pm
  • Friday evening, starting at 8pm

All the films we show are grouped into two, three or five film seasons. The films in a season are linked by genre (e.g. screwball comedies), director (e.g. Sam Fuller), star (e.g. Meiko Kaji), or theme (e.g. re-imagining the 18th century).

You can join online, in person at any screening, or by completing and returning the print form.

Membership starts at just £20.
