Cinema can take us on journeys across the globe, make historical stories come to life and bring people together to share great entertainment. We love talking about films and so do our audiences. Our new Senior Selections invites older audiences to enjoy classic cinema and share their thoughts about the film over a cuppa after the film. Discover new films and make new friendships in the comfortable surroundings of Filmhouse.
