Dorchester Film Society
Showing The Best Of World Cinema Since 1958

Dorchester Film Society has been showing the best of world cinema since 1958. Each season we show 18 interesting and highly acclaimed contemporary films.

For more information about the society please visit the About Us page.

Every season we aim to show a variety of films that would not normally be screened in local commercial cinemas. The majority of these films are foreign-language with subtitles.

We are members of Cinema For All and the Cinema For All South West group.
