Family Film Club
The best film club in town meets every Saturday.
Join us on Saturday mornings for Family Film Club for our wonderful programme of films for young fans.
Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult.
If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
Book early to avoid disappointment.
Don't forget, you can pick up your FFC Loyalty Card at the screening. Come along five times and get your sixth visit free!
