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.
Our first season was 1958/59 so the upcoming 2017/18 season will be our 60th! We currently have around 200 members and we always welcome more, so if you would like to join us please get in touch.
For more information about the society as well as price information, how to join and to order guest tickets please visit the About Us page.
Our foreign language films are shown in Dorchester's Corn Exchange, North Square. We have an agreement with the Plaza Cinema in Dorchester to show 6 films per season - these films will normally be English-language films.
