About Us

The Malmesbury Film Society was started in 1999 to show entertaining films in a friendly local venue for everyone in Malmesbury and the surrounding villages. We are a small non-profit society with all funds used for film and room rental costs. We are members of the British Federation of Film Societies which supports local community cinema groups.


We show a wide range of engaging films - classics new and old, domestic and foreign. We aim to present unique and memorable films that you would not typically see at the bigger cinemas. About half of our showing are sub-titled foreign language films that you might never have heard of but won't forget after seeing. We present a film during Malmesbury Carnival in August as well as a Christmas Classic in December.

Here are some of the films we've shown recently:

  • Tracks

  • Unknown Things (Bruno Coppola)

  • M

  • Romancing the Stone

  • The Lunchbox

  • Wadjda

  • Kuma


You can buy your ticket on the door for only £5 per film - no membership or booking is necessary. New people are always welcome. If this is your first film, just turn up a few minutes before the start time and find a seat.


Become a member and you only pay £28 for all 12 films shown each year - that's 6 free films! £23 for concessions. The film society depends on membership support. As a member you keep the society running and you get the chance to see amazing films you wouldn't ordinarily consider going to. Just ask to join at the door.


All films are shown at St. Mary's Hall, a 17th C Grade II listed building used for community events. We have a large screen with a terrific sound system. The hall is hearing loop enabled and has disabled access.
