PLEASE NOTE OUR CHANGE OF VENUE. From January 2018, we shall be screening all our films at 'The Exchange', a new community facility opposite Twickenham Station. Its address is The Exchange, 75 London Road, Twickenham, TW1 1BE.


Its amenites include a very comfortable, tiered 300 seat theatre, an onsite bar and a cafe. Our first screening at our new venue will be ‘Paterson’ on 16 January, 2018.



There is no onsite parking at The Exchange (save for limited space for Blue Badge holders), although there is free car parking nearby at: (i) Waitrose Arragon Road multi-storey car park from 6:00pm to midnight; (ii) Holly Road car park from 6:30pm;  and (iii) local streets from 6:30pm.  The Exchange is directly opposite Twickenham station, which is served by trains to and from Waterloo, Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Kingston and Reading. Bus routes 110, 267 and 281 stop outside The Exchange, the 290 stops in Arragon Road and the 33, 490, H22, R68  and R70 all stop in central Twickenham, which is a 5 minute walk away.


As before, films will continue to be shown on alternate Tuesdays, commencing at The Exchange with ‘Paterson’ on 16 January, 2018. 


Discounted memberships for the second half of our Season - comprising eight films and commencing with ‘Paterson’ on 16 January - are now available for £35 - i.e. for less than £4.40 per film (full-time students £20). Existing memberships are, of course, valid at the new location.

Tickets on the night for non-members are £6 (£4 full-time students) and all are very welcome. 


Film notes are provided for each screening and audience feedback is obtained via response slips. As affiliates of Arts Richmond, we also provide members with details of other local arts-related events. 


Richmond Film Society was formed in 1963 and has since screened over 770 films. Our objective was, and remains, to bring our community the very best in World Cinema. Our seasons run from September to April and comprise 15 films of international repute, typically drawing an aggregate audience of over 1,000 members and guests. The 2017/18 season includes films from Estonia, Greece, Romania, Iceland, Colombia, Iran and USA. 


New members are always very welcome and tickets will continue to be available on the night for non-members, particularly in view of the enhanced capacity of The Exchange. Please come along and join us.
