2006 Film Society Programme


After a summer of planning the Canterbury Film Society is pleased to announce that the 2006 programme is available for your consideration on our website:

Membership leaflets will soon be hitting the streets as well.

We have 29 nights of the best of film culture; from classics to recent releases. You'll find films to challenge, entertain and enthral. If you have eyes, you owe it to them to see these films.

Membership forms are available via the site, and for those wanting to decorate their homes and offices we have a selection of posters with which you can spread the word about our screenings. Download them and use the work printer/copier while no-one is looking to produce hundreds*

See you at the movies.

Canterbury Film Society

*Don't actually do this, it would be bad and might get you in trouble.
