Richmond Film Society

  • Description

    Richmond Film Society was formed in 1963 and has since screened well over 800 films. Our objective is to bring our community the very best in World Cinema. Our seasons run from September to June and attract an aggregate audience of over 4,500 attendees.

    Films are shown at 8.00pm sharp on alternate Tuesdays (no trailers and no ads) and are screened at The Exchange. On screening nights, the Bar is open from 7.00pm and remains open after the film. Drinks can be taken into the auditorium and coffee, tea and snacks are also available. Film notes are provided for each screening and audience feedback is obtained via response slips.

    See for full details of our Season 58 programme.

    Our Venue

    We have screen all our films at The Exchange, the community facility opposite Twickenham Station at 75 London Road, Twickenham, TW1 1BE. Its facilities include a very comfortable, tiered 285-seat theatre (whose capacity can be increased to 310), lifts, disabled access, a bar and a café.

    The Exchange is directly opposite Twickenham station, which is served by trains to and from Waterloo, Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Kingston and Reading. Bus routes 110, 267 and 281 stop outside The Exchange, the 290 stops in Arragon Road and the 33, 490, H22, R68 and R70 all stop in central Twickenham, which is a 5 minute walk away.

There is no onsite parking at The Exchange and no public parking on the Brewery Wharf Estate. There is, however, free car parking nearby at:

    • Waitrose Arragon Road multi-storey car park from 6pm to midnight

    • Holly Road car park from 6:30pm

    • Local streets from 6:30pm

    Season 58 Membership is Closed

    Owing to renewals from the vast majority of our existing members and a number of new joiners, our membership cap of 250 has now been reached. Accordingly, we are not in a position to offer any further memberships for Season 58.

    For our 58th season, we held the price of membership at £40 (the 1998 fee), which equates to £2.11 per film. For full-time students, membership is offered at the concessionary rate of £25 for the season.
