The 2016/17 season runs from Thursday, 29th September until Tuesday, 20th June.  All films start at 8PM (unless indicated otherwise).  During the season, we also hold 3 informal discussion meetings in the Foyer of the Cramphorn Theatre following the screening of a film (dates as shown below).  This gives members an opportunity to talk about the films we have shown up to that point.

Membership for the 2016/17 season is £60 (which could work out as just £3.75 per film, if you manage to watch all 16 films).  Please see our Membership page for more information on how to join or for attending as a guest.
