Film Society reeling with success

A popular local film group is continuing to reel in crowds with their latest cinema season which presents an eclectic mix of classic and current gems from across the world. The Shrewsbury Film Society which is based at the Hive is screening something for all tastes and interests - with Shropshire film enthusiasts encouraged to come along and discover what the society has to offer!

Shrewsbury Film Society aims to offer films and friendly surroundings all at a great price; rivalling any of the mainstream cinemas. It is organised and overseen by a group of local film enthusiasts. A warm welcome awaits visitors in the bar from 7:30pm with films always commencing at 8pm, taking place regularly on various Friday or Saturday evenings.

The latest season commenced back in September with a screening of Welcome to the Sticks. Last Friday evening saw Japanese drama Departures screened to great acclaim from the audience - and the next film will be drama Tess, to be shown on Friday November 8.

Habib Malik-Mansell from the Hive said "The Shrewsbury Film Society really has developed over the last two years from a fledging group through to a fully formed and increasingly popular society, with a national reputation as one of the UK's best new film societies." He added "They are continuing to prove that there really is a demand for unique and engaging cinema in Shropshire - with audience numbers stronger than ever before, as people across the region tap in to this great cinematic resource."

Future films to be screened include In a Better World on November 22, Il Divo on December 6 and Searching for Sugarman on December 20. There will also be a special mini-season of Saturdays, where an interesting series of conflicts will be screened, starting on November 16 and the showing of Waltz with Bashir.
Admission for films is £5 per film. For more information on the full season and to access film notes, trailers and further details - visit
