THE EGERTON FILM SOCIETY

Click here for forthcoming screenings

Established in 2000 and showing its first film in January 2001, the Egerton Film Society is open to anyone over the age of sixteen. The current annual membership fee is £6, with concessions (£4) for pensioners and full-time students. Screenings are usually held on the last Thursday in the month (except July and August), with occasional special screenings and lectures at other times. A licensed bar is available at each performance. Our films are shown in the Egerton Millennium Hall using high-quality widescreen DVD video projection and Dolby EX 5.1 Surround Sound. Members, their guests, and members of the public can be admitted to the film screenings, subject to the discretion of the Committee. Admission to performances is usually priced at £4.00 for all members and £5.00 for guests/non-members. Season Tickets are available. Programmes are published and circulated to all members twice each year. All members who wish to do so receive e-mail reminders about the current month’s film.

The Society is run in association with the Egerton Telecottage by a Committee which is elected at the Annual General Meeting, usually held in September. For membership applications enquiries, telephone Richard King on 01233 756592

We always welcome new volunteers, to help with setting up the hall, manning the bar, putting up posters (particularly if you live somewhere other than Egerton) and assisting with clerical and technical duties. Thanks to everyone who helps with this already. Do, please, come along (and volunteer, if you can), for we really do need your help and support for the Egerton Film Society to continue to flourish. We look forward to seeing you.
