Welwyn Garden City Film Society
Our new season of six films starts on 30 January and the brochure and membership cards for the
2022 season are now available. You can join by paying in cash, by cheque or online.
All shows are on a Sunday evening and start at 7:30.
If refreshments are required, you should remember that Campus West has adopted a
cashless policy, but cash is acceptable at the Film Society desk on the first floor.
Campus West requires those attending to wear masks in the cinema and during the film.
There is usually room to spread out in the seating area in Screen 3.
Background to the Society
The purpose of the Society is to show the best of contemporary and classic world cinema, in a
comfortable and sociable setting.
The films are usually selected partly by the Committee and partly by the votes of Members,
although this year, exceptionally, the incidence of Covid and the desire to restart the Society left insufficient time to circulate members for their votes.
Welwyn Garden City Film Society is one of the longest-standing film societies in the country,
having been established shortly after World War II. In the 2017/18 season, it was felt that the
future of the Society was in jeopardy because income from memberships had fallen, while costs
continued to rise. Fortunately, through the cooperation of members, who agreed to raise the
membership subscription and reduce the number of films to ten, the Society has survived. In fact
the 2018/19 season saw an impressive increase in both membership and guest ticket sales,although the last two years have inevitably been difficult.
