About Richmond Film Society
Richmond Film Society was formed in 1963 and has since screened nearly 780 films. Our objective is to bring our community the very best in World Cinema. Our seasons run from September to April and attract an aggregate audience of over 2,000 attendees.
Films are shown at 8.00pm sharp on alternate Tuesdays (no trailers and no ads) and are screened at The Exchange. On screening nights, the Bar is open from 7.00pm and the auditorium opens at 7.30pm. Film notes are provided for each screening and audience feedback is obtained via response slips.
Season 56 Membership – £40
A core objective of RFS (a not-for-profit charity) is to promote and encourage interest in World Cinema as an art form and to make our screenings affordable for everyone in our community. With that objective in mind and in recognition of the loyalty and support of our members over many years, the Committee decided to reduce the membership fee for Season 56 by one third and to extend the Season from 15 to 16 films.
Accordingly, the cost of membership for this season is £40, representing an unbeatable bargain of £2.50 per film. You will, therefore, have covered your membership subscription once you have attended 8 of the 16 films in the Season 56 Programme.
The reduction to £40 from last season’s level of £60 (which had applied for the past five years) reflects the substantial growth in our membership and audience figures, particularly last season. It also represents a return to the 1998 RFS membership fee. The concessionary seasonal membership fee for full-time students in Season 56 will be reduced from £35 to £25.
Membership includes free admission to all 16 screenings, free admission to the Christmas party, input into future film selection and details of other local arts-related events through our affiliation with Arts Richmond.
The cost of non-member tickets for Season 56 has also been reduced from £6 to £5 (full-time students £3). Tickets can be purchased on the night (cash only), in advance from The Exchange’s Box Office (in person or by telephone on 020 8240 2399) or online at http://exchangetwickenham.co.uk/events/ .
