Film Club at the Roxy is a non-profit-making venture. It was formed in 1989 by a small group of Ulverston film enthusiasts, inspired by the late Gwyneth Walker. We retain the club’s original aim to show recent quality films from around the world – films you do not often find in mainstream cinemas – to a South Lakeland audience .
Letter from the Chair
|Dear film enthusiast, |
It’s been a while since I was last in contact with you about Film Club at the Roxy. You may remember returning a questionnaire about restarting the Film Club last Autumn. As a result of feedback, the committee agreed not to proceed then.
Now there is the happy prospect of cinemas reopening from 17 May, if lockdown easing continues to plan. It seems reasonable to assume that we’ll start a new Film Club season in September 2021.
However for the Film Club to continue, we need to introduce new blood into the committee. I have carried out the role of Chair for the last 10 years, and have now decided to take a break. Additionally I’ve acted as Graphic Designer. Similarly my wife Rosie has decided to resign from her role as membership secretary. None of the other committee members wishes to take on these roles. So we need at least 2 or 3 volunteers.
The Film Club has been thriving in recent years, with around 155 members, and many more subscribers. The roles offer the chance to get closely involved in bringing the best of world cinema to South Lakeland.
If you’d like to find out more (without any commitment), please email to
I can send you a document detailing the tasks currently carried out by the different role holders on our committee.
As usual, our AGM is due this Spring. The intention is to hold it virtually at the start of June, using Zoom. We need to elect the committee then for the Film Club to continue.
ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP £6 (Concessions £5) These subscriptions are the Club’s only income
Tickets: Members £5 – Non-Members £6 (no concessions for non-members)
Films are shown on the second Thursday of the month, September to June
Doors open at 7.30 pm. Film starts at 8.00 pm. Refreshments are available.
We now have an ARCHIVE of all the films shown by the Club since its inauguration in 1989. Click on the season (eg 1999-2000) to bring up a list of films, directors and countries of origin.
