Film Clubs

In our various specialist strands, we show films other cinemas never do. We try to cater to many of the diverse communities that live in our borough.
As a part of that, we show quality Art House films and World Cinema alongside documentaries from around the world.

Customers who do not fall into the particular audience category (below) are welcome to attend, but need to be aware that we cater for the primary audience in each case.

Babes in Arms

Tickets are priced at:

  • Babies under one year old are free
  • £9.50 (Adults)
  • £5.00 for people in receipt of Pension Credit, Universal Credit, Employment Support Allowance (ESA), Personal Independence Payments (PIP), Income Support or Job Seekers allowance, disabled people, students and those aged 25 and under.

Join us for our warm and welcoming screenings designed especially for parents with babies under one year old. We create a cosy atmosphere with low, comforting lighting and the sound level is significantly lower than usual.

We understand that babies may need attention and care during the film, so don’t worry if you need to leave your seat from time to time. We want you to feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the screening, and while other patrons may also attend, our main focus is on creating an optimal and supportive environment for parents.

Please note that the film features selected for these screenings are aimed at adults, and we encourage you to consider your baby’s age and suitability when choosing to attend.

Dementia Friendly

Dementia Friendly screenings have been designed for those living with dementia and their carers, although others are welcome to come. We show older films which we hope will suit our audience, as well as appropriate titles from our regular programme. These are screened with just a trailer for the next month’s film preceeding the main film. These are ‘relaxed’ screenings. The lights are dimmed but not cut off completely, and patrons can move around easily. We have two sets of removable seats to accommodate wheel chairs. Free tea, coffee and biscuits are available before the screenings.

Screenings take place once per month, usually the first Thursday of the month. We receive support from the Croydon Dementia Action Alliance and the cinema is an accredited Dementia Friendly Venue

All tickets priced at £5 – accompanying carers at zero cost.
