Season 58 Membership is Closed

Owing to renewals from the vast majority of our existing members and a significant number of new joiners, our membership cap of 250 has now been reached. Accordingly, we are not in a position to offer any further membership for Season 58. For our 58th season, we held the price of £40 (the 1998 fee), which equates to £2.11 per film. For full-time students, membership is offered at the concessionary rate of £25 for the season.

We do, however, hope to make non-member tickets available to purchase for individual screenings from mid-November (see below).

The season, which runs until June 2022 with screenings on alternate Tuesdays at The Exchange, comprises 19 films of international repute, including features from Europe, Africa, Japan, Saudi Arabia and South Korea. See www.richmondfilmsoc.org.uk for full details of the programme.

Non-Member Tickets

Please note that this screening will be ‘members only’, although it is anticipated that non-member tickets will be made available from mid-November, subject to capacity and any COVID-related issues.

When they do become available, non-member tickets will remain at £5 (full-time students £3). Subject to availability, tickets can be purchased in advance from The Exchange’s Box Office – by telephone on 020 8240 2399 or online www.exchangetwickenham.co.uk
