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.
Senior Selections films are chosen by our Senior Volunteers, who will be on hand to welcome you and have a chat after the film.
These film screenings are for audiences who are over-60. Tickets are £3 each and include tea, coffee and biscuits after the film. Places are limited and we particularly welcome new audiences.

Everything’s going swimmingly, until a revelation from Rab’s past threatens to tear the family and all three couples apart...
