Dartmouth Film Society was started at the beginning of 1997 after the closure of the local cinema, with an Arts Council grant just enough to buy a cranky 16mm projector and speakers. With no fixed abode, the DFS Team took films to restaurants, hotels and even a local beach with a showing of Jaws – and felt honoured within the year to be granted the BFFS Best New Film Society Award.

Now, 23 years on, things have changed somewhat. Our permanent home is the recently refurbished Guildhall, with its upgraded equipment and comfy new seats - and we’re pleased to report that we’re still going strong.
We’re delighted to welcome regular guests at every screening and have a core number of loyal members – but we’re always ready for more…
One of the main benefits of becoming part of the DFS Club, apart from the eclectic mix of film genres - modern and classic, drama and comedy, music, documentary, foreign and more - must of course be the price per film. We aim to show twenty per year which makes the cost an incredible £2 per film (annual membership is £40 if you join before the end of January 2020).
We aim to make film evenings more enjoyable with drinks and snacks available before the start and during the interval; our bar prices too (no price increase this year!) are extremely reasonable, with a decent glass of wine or beer for just £2.50 and soft drinks for less – where else in town can you enjoy a drink and a good film for under £5??  Add to this the relaxed, friendly atmosphere, 50/50 raffle, early finish for those ‘across the water’, free Christmas party with complimentary buffet, concessions on special events etc. and we think we’re offering a pretty good deal.
With all this on offer at your friendly local Film Society, how can you resist? We look forward to welcoming you there very soon.
All you need to do is come along and enjoy it with us - join at any fortnightly Thursday screening - check our website and Facebook page for details and dates: www.dartmouthfilmsociety.org.uk or http://www.facebook.com/dartmouthfilmsociety
