Great News – Ripon Film Society at Curzon Ripon
From January 2014, Ripon Film Society will be holding their fortnightly screenings films at the new Curzon Ripon Cinema on North Street – great screen, comfortable seats and a chance to meet and chat before and after the film.
This is great news for the Film Society, but as we celebrate our move to Curzon, we should also say a huge 'thank you' to Ripon Leisure Centre, who have been fantastic hosts for goodness knows how many years!
RFS was set up in 1998, and since then we've run an annual programme of screenings that bring a rich and varied mix of world cinema to our audiences. We meet regularly every other Wednesday, from October to April each year. Films begin at 8.00pm but it's always best to arrive a bit earlier if possible to avoid the queues!
The Society is run by a small group of volunteers, and is a member of the British Federation of Film Societies. Like most film societies we are a membership society, and show our films under a non-theatrical licence for our members and guests.
Dates for all of our 2014 films have now been confirmed, and our next film, Rust and Bone, will be shown on the 26th February. After that, our regular fortnightly screenings begin, and you can find more details on each of the films below.
We really hope you will enjoy the rest of our programme this year, with the mix of new releases, award winning films and often low budget films which turn out to be true gems.
We look forward to seeing you, and welcoming you to our new venue, Curzon Ripon!
Our Next Film
Promised Land Mar
A ‘fracking’ tale. A salesman for a natural gas company experiences life-changing events after arriving in a small town, where his corporation wants to tap into the available resources. Promised Land explores America at the crossroads where big business and the strength of small-town community converge.
“watchable eco-drama – heavily indebted to a wittier anti-corporate movie, Local Hero, made 30 years ago”.
