Chester Film Society offers the people of Chester and surrounding areas the chance to see some of the finer films of world cinema in a relaxing and appreciative atmosphere.
Our programme provides a selection of new releases and classics, with varying themes and genres, many of which have bypassed the North West of England, but always chosen to interest, intrigue and entertain.
Our success is due to the loyalty and enthusiasm of our members. We are always pleased to see our friends returning as members, and we are delighted to welcome new members of all ages, to the society, with its diverse mix of film and film-related social events. Previous events include welcoming and pre-Christmas drinks, guest speakers, themed fun-nights and unexpected short films in addition to the regular programme!
Our main venue - The Little Theatre - has comfortable raked seating and a licensed bar on the premises for drinks before or after each performance.
Film projection is by 16mm film or by DVD projection format, using original dialogue with subtitles for the foreign films.
Like most film societies, Chester Film Society is a membership society. This is because we operate under a non-theatrical licence. The terms of such a licence means that we cannot show films to 'the general public', but we can show films to members and guests.
Unsure about joining? Come along as a guest. Guest tickets cost just £3.50 per night. If you become a member we can adjust your membership accordingly (subject to availability).
