Information

About Keswick Film Club

Keswick Film Club began life in 1998 with the intention of bringing the best of World Cinema to Keswick. Since then it has won many awards from the British Federation of Film Societies (now Cinema For All) including Best Programme four times, Best Website and Film Society of the Year in 2006. Anyone can come to a film, and we have over 200 members who benefit from even cheaper viewings.

Membership

Membership is open to everyone and will save you money if you attend more than 7 films over the course of one year.

Time & Screenings

KFC has two 'seasons', each with its own brochure available around Keswick and area (e.g. T.I.C., Library, Booths) or posted to members.

Most films are screened on Sundays at 5pm, but please check each film for times.

'Autumn Season' - September to December
'Spring Season' - January to April

Screenings begin with a short introduction, followed, time allowing, by a short film. Film notes are available prior to screenings or on the club website, and we have a voting system - give the film a star rating out of five.

Location

The Alhambra Cinema, St. John's Street, Keswick, North Lake District. Continue up the hill from the top of the Market Square and keep going uphill for 200 metres.
