For 12 highly successful seasons, Lympstone Film Society has been bringing cinema to the village. With an enthusiastic audience of 100 or more, we have shown recent and older films that are not usually seen in commercial picture houses. We welcome new members from the village and beyond, and offer social and enjoyable evenings with great entertainment.
Our programme runs from September to April, with the Friday films normally screened the second Friday of the month, and with six Wednesday matinees. And so members can see 15 films each year for their £20 annual subscription.
Doors usually open at 6.45pm for the Friday evening showings, so that members can meet beforehand and have a drink from the bar, a friendly and popular social occasion. Screening starts at 7.30pm.
There is usually a short film and advertisements for Lympstone events, followed by an interval where ice creams and drinks are on sale. After the interval we show the main film.
Excellent programme notes are distributed, which this coming season can also be read in advance on this website. Each of the three Wednesday afternoon classic films is preceded by an entertaining talk by Martin Fisher, former Head of Light Entertainment for BBC Radio, who selects this part of the programme. Brian Mather introduces the local films.
Once a year, usually in February, we serve a very popular meal that precedes a film.
A lending library of DVDs of films we have shown is free to members. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
