Welcome to Penwith Film Society, showing the best new and classic cinema from around the world to audiences in West Cornwall.
You don’t need to be a Penwith Film Society member to come along, you’re very welcome.
Thanks to the generosity and hard work of staff at Merlin Cinemas we are really pleased to announce the Penwith Film Society will be returning to the Savoy cinema, Penzance for a trial season this Autumn.
Things have really moved on at the Savoy since we were last there: marvellous new screens and a great cafe/restaurant.
We've chosen a season in which you will find plenty of cinematic gems, from brand new films from around the planet to well-loved classics.
All the films are bookable straight away, so we recommend you buy your seats as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Our films will now be shown on Sundays in the early evening - almost always at 6pm, 5pm if the film is a long one, on screen 2.
Claudio is a middle-aged lawyer with a prosperous life in a placid provincial town in mid-70's Argentina, just before the military coup. One night he enters a restaurant where he is verbally attacked by a mysterious stranger, their argument continues on the street outside, and then escalates even more with drastic consequences. A few months later a friend comes to see Claudio about an abandoned house that he is interested in buying.
It's all about a society manoeuvring to stay at the dinner table while getting its unsavoury elements thrown out, and finding ways to stop them ever coming back.

It's powerful material, deftly delivered.
