ABOUT HARROGATE FILM SOCIETY NOW SCREENING AT ODEON HARROGATE
Having started in 1955, Harrogate Film Society is run by a group of film enthusiasts in an informal and welcoming atmosphere. Our core programme each year starts in September running through to April and we usually show 15 films. As always, our focus is on bringing you critically acclaimed and diverse films from all over the world. Entertaining, thoughtful, sometimes unusual and stimulating, many rarely screened in the UK.
Now that we've announced our Core Season, we are hard at work behind the scenes trying to plan some extra events - all will be revealed in due course.
Screening the films at the Odeon allows us to offer members and guests the full cinematic experience, including surround sound and comfortable seating (though it costs slightly more than cheaper venues).
In addition to our core programme of 15 contemporary films from around the world, we organize occasional film-related events in the local community under the banner of 'Flash Film' or 'Special Screening' or 'Special Events'.
Our most successful event has been Harrogate on Film which has now been seen by over 1000 film fans.
We hope to bring more of these in the future. If you have any ideas, please get in touch with us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or speak to a committee member at any of our film nights.
With this initiative, our goal is to promote film in the local community. Films we have shown under this banner include Some Like it Hot, Brooklyn and Cabaret, in venues as varied as the North Bar, the Manhattan Club and Harrogate Theatre.
We have recently shown Revolution of our Times Documentary at the Odeon and Metropolis and The Passion of Joan of Arc at Harrogate Theatre.
