The Folkestone Film Club meets every Thursday morning for guests to socialise and enjoy complimentary tea, coffee, and biscuits in our main screen, followed by a film.
Our doors open at 10:00am, and free tea, coffee, and biscuits are served until 10:50am. Please note that we charge for tea and coffee after this time. The film starts promptly at 11:00am with no adverts, so please ensure you arrive before 10:50am, especially if you would like to take advantage of our complimentary refreshments.
Each film in the programme is repeated in the smaller screen the following week, so you can catch up on any missed screenings. Spaces are limited for repeat screenings, so we recommend pre-booking or arriving early to avoid disappointment.
Seating is not allocated for Film Club shows. Tickets are available to book several weeks in advance for members, and one week in advance for non-members. After advance booking closes on the day, any remaining tickets are sold on on the door on a first-come-first-served basis.
You’ll get priority admission to the Film Club when you book your tickets online. Make sure you have your order confirmation email with the QR Code ready to show on arrival, and come straight up past the queue to our kiosk. Staff will check you in at the first available opportunity, and you’ll then be able to proceed straight into the auditorium.
You can support the Film Club by joining as a member. As a Film Club member, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:
Doors open 20-30 minutes before the time shown. There are usually 10-15 minutes of adverts, and the film starts soon afterwards. Please arrive before the performance time.
These shows have subtitled dialogue, and text description of important sounds and music on-screen during the film. The film still plays with audio as usual. There are no adverts before the film.

Popular with children & families, tickets are £3 each for these family films. They are usually very busy and may sell out. Seats are unallocated, so we recommend groups arrive early (even if you have booked), otherwise you may not be able to sit together.
Our relaxed, autism-friendly sensory-sensitive screenings are shown without adverts or trailers. The film’s sound is reduced, and the lighting stays on at a low level during the film. Seating is not allocated, so it’s OK to move during the film.

Our Adult & Baby shows are exclusive screenings of U, PG, or 12A films, giving parents & guardians with babies under 2 years a chance to see the latest releases. The film's sound is reduced, and the lights stay on during the film.
It's OK if your baby makes noise during the film. You won't need to buy a ticket for your baby (unless they need their own seat). Adults without a baby under 2 years will not be admitted to these screenings.
