Cinema

We are the go-to society for anyone who is passionate about the art of cinema and watching films on the big screen, with a captive audience. This is a place to discover films you may not have watched otherwise, and to discuss them with a group of like-minded film-lovers: foreign film, vintage classics, underrated gems, and even new releases. If you're less about the technical side and more into the straightforward enjoyment and appreciation of cinema - we're the society for you!

 

What we do

As a Cinema Society, our main aim will always be to provide weekly screenings of great films, and an opportunity to meet fellow film-lovers at Royal Holloway.

Currently, these screenings take place every Wednesday 7pm in Arts Lecture Theatre 1 -  with a proper cinema atmosphere: lights turned down low, no phone screens, no talking - followed by an optional trip to the pub after for drinks and chat.

These screenings are open to everyone: members and non-members. Rather, members are given the chance to vote on what will be screened. Specifically, a weekly members-only poll from a curated selection of films based around a certain theme, director or genre: Hitchcock, Korean film, 80s comedy. We expect lots of people campaigning for their favourite in the run-up to our weekly sessions!
