Penwith Film Society

Welcome to Penwith Film Society, showing the best new and classic cinema from around the world to audiences in West Cornwall.

Merlin Cinemas are upgrading the Savoy this year which means we are unable to show films with them until next September. This is great news for the future: lovely new seats and screens and improved projection. In the meantime rather than go “dark” for a year, Newlyn Filmhouse have kindly offered to host our screenings. To find out more about this situation click here.

THEEB

Set during the Middle Eastern theatre of World War I, Naji Abu Nowar’s debut feature follows the movements of young Bedouin boy Theeb. In the wake of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire, Theeb’s coming-of-age is hastened by the arrival of a British officer, who he must guide to a secret destination across the unforgiving Wadi Rum desert. Theeb’s struggle to survive, microcosmic of a nation in turmoil, is beautifully rendered in this Arabic feature.
