Penwith Film Society

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, but do please join us: it enables us to keep going and costs merely £12 a year.

Thanks to the generosity and hard work of staff at Merlin Cinemas we are extremely 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.

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.

We'd like to emphasise this is a trial season and will only continue if it's financially viable for Merlin to maintain it, so it's very much as case of use it or lose it - this is the last chance saloon.

With that in mind 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.

APOLLO 11

A new documentary about the 1969 iconic mission features hitherto unseen spectacular 70mm footage rom the NASA archives, but focuses on the human responses. 

"The NASA mission at the heart of the must-see documentary Apollo 11 reminds you what it feels to be truly awestruck."
Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
