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.
If you would like to be added to our mailing lists for forthcoming shows and films, please email to chair of village hall with your details.
Forthcoming Shows and Films
Grampound Film Club: Battle of the Sexes
Battle of the Sexes is a 2017 biographical sports film directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton and written by Simon Beaufoy. The plot is loosely based on the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. The film stars Emma Stone and Steve Carell as King and Riggs, leading an ensemble cast including Andrea Riseborough, Elisabeth Shue, Austin Stowell, Bill Pullman, Natalie Morales, and Sarah Silverman in supporting roles.
The film had its premiere at the Telluride Film Festival in September 2017. It received positive reviews from critics, who praised the performances of Stone and Carell and the direction, with some calling it the best performance of Stone's career. At the 75th Golden Globe Awards, Stone and Carell received nominations for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy and Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy respectively.

Grampound Film Club: Bohemian Rhapsody
Bohemian Rhapsody is an enthralling celebration of Queen, their music, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and convention to become one of history’s most beloved entertainers. Following Queen’s meteoric rise, their revolutionary sound and Freddie’s solo career, the film also chronicles the band’s reunion, and one of the greatest performances in rock history.
It follows the singer's life from the formation of the band up to their 1985 Live Aid performance at the original Wembley Stadium. It stars Rami Malek as Mercury, with Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joe Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, and Mike Myers in supporting roles. Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor served as consultants.
Little Earthquake Theatre: I ain't afraid of no ghost
“It’s 1986. I am eight years old. Prince Andrew and Fergie get married in the summer. Dirty Den serves Angie divorce papers on Christmas Day. And I’m sharing my bedroom with a KitKat-pinching ghost.”
Inspired by his favourite film, little Gareth became a self-appointed Ghostbuster, launching an investigation into a playful poltergeist. Now, three decades later, with the help of home videos, retro toys and interviews with his nearest and dearest, grown-up Gareth is determined to uncover what was really going on inside his very own haunted house.
Join us for a nostalgic trip back to the 80s and a comic exploration of a childhood haunting where nothing is quite what it seems — all wrapped up in some formidable fashions, stuffed with sweet treats and set to a cheese-tastic, chart-topping soundtrack.
Tickets £10, £8 through CRBO online
