The hall plays host to a wide range of local and touring theatre groups. Each year there are more than 20 live shows. The dates are determined by the timetables of the theatre companies but, at any time, there is a forward programme in place for the next few months. The shows have been running since the hall opened in 2004 and, in October 2015, the hall celebrated hosting its 200th show. Over 10,000 people have attended the shows in that time.

Film Club

Grampound Film Club started under the umbrella organisation, C-fylm, in May 2016. It runs on the first Wednesday of each month. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the film starts at 7.30 p.m. There is an interval for refreshments.

Moviegoers must become members of C-fylm which costs £6 per annum (calendar year basis). You can join the first time that you come to the Film Club. This money goes to C-fylm to help pay for the licence from the Motion Picture Licensing Company and it covers admission on that first visit. Thereafter, entry to each film costs £3 per person.

Grampound Film Club: The Artist

The Artist is a 2011 French comedy-drama film in the style of a black-and-white silent film or part-talkie. The film was written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius, produced by Thomas Langmann and stars Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo. The story takes place in Hollywood, between 1927 and 1932, and focuses on the relationship between a rising young actress and an older silent film star as silent cinema falls out of fashion and is replaced by the "talkies".

The Artist received widespread critical acclaim and won many accolades. Dujardin won Best Actor at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, where the film premiered.

It was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won five, including Best Picture, Best Director for Hazanavicius, and Best Actor for Dujardin, making him the first French actor ever to win in this category.

Grampound Film Club: No Time to Die

No Time to Die is a 2021 spy film and the twenty-fifth in the James Bond series produced by Eon Productions, starring Daniel Craig in his fifth and final portrayal of fictional British MI6 agent James Bond. 

Bond has left active service with MI6 and is recruited by the CIA to find a kidnapped scientist, which leads to a showdown with a powerful adversary.

Director Cary Joji Fukunaga compared Bond to a "wounded animal" and described his state of mind as "struggling to deal with his role as a '00 agent'. The world's changed. The rules of engagement aren't what they used to be. The rules of espionage are darker in this era of asymmetric warfare”. Craig stated that the film is "about relationships and family"
