Film Groups

 Film Society

The Film Society publishes its own programme of films annually as well as appearing in the Centre’s  half yearly programme.

The society is an integral part of the Centre and one of its most popular activities. Persons joining the Arts Centre have the option to purchase a Membership that includes the Film Society. This entitles them to free attendance at films that are part of the main programme.

A programme of 18 high quality films of international stature is shown from September through to May each year, on a Friday evening. The current season's listing (2019-2020) can be downloaded here.

A limited number of tickets for non-members are available from the box office, the Shaftesbury Tourist Information Centre and on line during the preceding week. Further tickets become available for sale from 7.50pm (ten minutes before showing) on the night of each film.
Cost: £7, SAC members £5.50, under 18s £5.

Additional Film Specials, open to all are arranged for fundraising purposes. These Film Specials are not included in the Film Society membership.

A separate monthly programme for senior citizens is shown on the third Tuesday of each month (except August), see below.

The society is run by a committee elected by its members and has a designated director on the centre’s Board. Films are selected by the society’s committee in June and a members’ poll of suggested titles is taken into consideration.

Committee members also help to run ‘Moviola’ community village hall shows in the area and provide advice and support, including equipment, to other local film societies.

Shaftesbury Arts Centre Film Society is a member of the British Federation of Film Societies and affiliated to the British Film Institute.

Shaftesbury Arts Centre is a member of Cinema for All, now in its fortieth year in the South West.

A regular programme of films for the over 50s is also shown at the centre under the banner of the Seniors' Film Club.

A main feature film is shown on the third Tuesday afternoon of every month (except August) starting at 2pm.

Tickets are available 'on the door' (at the box office) at a cost of £3.
