Why join Wimbledon Film Club?

You’ll get film notes and an introduction to each film. You can discuss what you think of the film with members and guests afterwards. You’ll get special events including guest speakers in the standard programme plus options to attend partner events like the mystery movies or WFC/Bookfest films.

You can suggest films for us to screen.

You’ll be part of a community cinema with 7 British Federation of Film Societies awards.

We’re also proud we run the Wimbledon International Short Film Festival each year. It gives the best filmmakers and students starting off in the industry a chance to have their films screened – a great sponsored annual event judged by top industry experts.

Does it cost more than an ordinary cinema?

It’s much cheaper! Compare our prices including the annual subscription with the equivalent number of films at commercial cinemas.

Do I have to be a member to come to a WFC film?

We welcome non-members – you’ll pay £12 to see each film.

If you come to more than 3 or 4 WFC films in a season it starts to make financial sense to join, but if you choose not to, come early as only members can buy tickets in advance.

Where does Wimbledon Film Club screen?

At hmvcurzon, 23 The Broadway, Wimbledon, SW19 1QB.

Comfortable seats, wonderful sound system and top screening facilities. Before and after you can buy drinks in the bar.

Special events not in the standard programme may be screened at other local venues.

When?

Alternate Tuesdays. Doors open at 8.00pm, the film starts at 8.30pm.

The annual season runs from September to June/July of the following year.

(Why September to June/July? Many film societies don’t operate over the summer months – this is because it’s peak holiday season so generally fewer people would be able to attend. Fewer people attending changes the economics for each film screening, which would lead to higher subscription and entry prices throughout the year. And not least committee members are away during this period too!)
