Every year, Hook Norton Film Society screens 14 films on Saturday nights in the Memorial Hall, Chapel Street between September and May. Each film is preceded by a candlelit supper cooked by members. We have two pot luck supper evenings where all members provide a dish and a Charity Night when members pay to raise funds for worthwhile causes. Doors open at 6.45pm for refreshments and the film starts at approximately 8pm.

We use top of the range projection and sound equipment, provide comfortable seating, and good sightlines to a large screen. We always give a warm welcome to new members. If you don’t want to commit for the whole year, but would like to join us for the occasional candlelit supper and film of your choice, we’d be delighted to see you.

Our aim each season is to show exceptional films which represent a range of genres, countries and decades and which avoid the formulaic nature of movies which aim primarily for commercial success Our seasons always include a number of films which have won prestigious awards at international film festivals. You won’t see our films at an Odeon or on television before 1.30 am!

Membership, covering admission to all fourteen films costs £30 per person for the year. Meals are £6. To join, please pick up a brochure from the library, village shop or post office and send completed membership form to the Treasurer, Charles Henderson charleshenderson@fsmail.net.

Guest members are most welcome and pay only £11 for both meal and film. Members and guests should book in advance for meals and films no later than the Wednesday before the Saturday screening by phoning 01608 737411.
