The Trentham Film Society aims to encourage an interest in and promote the study and appreciation of film in an informal social setting. We screen a broad selection of quality films, both classic and more recent, from around the world. There is time after each screening to socialise and discuss the film over a cup of tea. All screenings are held at the Trentham Neighbourhood Centre in Trentham on the 1st Friday of the month at 7:30pm. Membership is open to all and is available at each screening. It is $50 for 10 screenings or $25 for 5 screenings. However, we encourage you to come to your first screening as our guest with no obligation. The screening tonight will be a Hitchcock film of the members choice.
