A great opportunity to introduce your friends to FILMBOX, you can see as many films as you like in our FREE film festival (and indeed we have timed it so you could go from one to the other all day, except for the 8.00pm shows) – something for the whole family!

FREE tickets must be booked online in advance and all venues have limited seating availability

DONATIONS WELCOME: IF EVERYONE MADE A DONATION AFTER SEEING EACH FILM IT WOULD REALLY HELP TO RECOVER OUR COSTS – THANK YOU!

(WE HAVE TO PAY LICENCES FOR ALL FILMS AS WELL AS ROOM/EQUIPMENT AND SITE STAFF HIRE).

NB: PLEASE DON’T BOOK TICKETS UNLESS YOU DEFINITELY CAN COME TO A SCREENING AS EMPTY SEATS LOOK SAD AND WILL PREVENT OTHERS FROM COMING AS SEATING IS LIMITED IN ALL VENUES. EMAIL US IF YOU NO LONGER REQUIRE A TICKET.

Putting on the Ritz at FILMBOX for our Gatsby sparkling event on Friday 30 August!

We have a full house for our new ‘Members Only’ social event next Friday 30 August, to celebrate our new members, the start of our Autumn season and our second year of operation! Black tie ‘n’ glamour – fizz ‘n’ canapés!

We’ll be showing a fabulous free screening of The Great Gatsby (Jack Clayton, 1974) starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow – and later in September we’ll be screening Baz Luhrmann‘s spectacular re-make with Leonardo Di Caprio so that you can compare them for yourself!

Booking is OPEN TOMORROW (24/8/13) TO ALL for the very first film of the Autumn season of our second year – FILMBOX will be one year old on 26 September… Happy Birthday to US!

Imagine a robot who can cook, clean, do the garden, monitor your blood pressure, keep you healthy… and out of trouble. Robot & Frank is a gentle comedy which reflects on the theme of memory. Frank Langhella’s performance is dry and low-key as a recalcitrant jewel-thief who won’t grow old gracefully, ably supported by Susan Sarandon, Liv Tyler and James Marsden. A great script and  story – we know you’ll enjoy our opening film – click on the poster to your right on the sidebar for the trailer. Tickets only £7 non-members (£4 members) – age 16+ only. Limited availability and tickets not available on the door – seating non-allocated in Studio 609 (seats 84).

Robot & Frank - a classy little film to make you smile.
