A reminder to all that, due to a technical issue, this week's and last week's films needed be switched at the last minute. Unfortunately this means that the widely advertised Goethe screening of "How to Make a Book With Steidl" will not play on the 27th as advertised but instead played last week - we apologise for any inconvenience. Remember you can come to any of our weekly screenings and purchase a full membership or a $30 3-film pass.
Welcome to the Canterbury Film Society!
In association with the New Zealand Federation of Film Societies, we present a top-quality season of films that screen every Monday from late February to early October at the Academy Gold Cinema in central Christchurch.
The thirty-week season covers a wide variety of cinematic experiences: cinema classics, arthouse rarities, international cinema and documentaries as well as local cinema and shorts.
We have a fantastic mix of films this year and are also showcasing some groups of films linked by people, places or style.
For a one year membership you get thirty festival-quality films on the big screen in a film club atmosphere - works out at less than $5 per film! With a full membership you can also bring a friend along to any one screening free-of-charge.
A one year membership rolls over into next year's season if you join mid-year. We also offer a 3-film membership so you can try it out and upgrade later. Join today!
