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 £4 per person.
