What we’re about

Harrogate Film Society (HFS for short) has been bringing the best in world cinema to Harrogate since 1956. We are delighted to screen our films at the Harrogate Odeon, thus providing our audiences with comfort and a full cinematic sound and vision experience.

The society is run entirely by volunteers and has a strong committed core membership, but we are very keen for new members to join us. You will find a warm welcome and a real mix of film fans and enthusiasts.

We are looking to expand our social media presence, via twitter, facebook and now meetup too. Joining our meetup group is free and being inclusive, you can join this meetup group regardless of whether you have paid our annual HFS membership fee / mini-membership fee or not (see website for current prices).

You are welcome to attend any of our events and tickets for these can be purchased online in advance via our website or at the event from our desk in the lobby at the Odeon. Please note that a yes RSVP on Meetup does not obligate you to attend any event, NOR DOES IT GUARANTEE YOU A PLACE AT THE EVENT IF YOU HAVE NOT PAID FOR A TICKET VIA THE HFS WEBSITE.

You do not need to purchase tickets in advance for our standard film nights (though it does just save you queueing in the Odeon lobby to pay) but it is IMPERATIVE that you book and pay for tickets in advance via the HFS website for any special events, particularly where these may sell out.

The majority of our films are screened in Screen 2 (upstairs with 200+ capacity) and occasional events are screened downstairs in Screens 3 or 5. The downstairs screens have different capacity levels but also have some wheelchair access for a limited number of guests. Please get in touch via the HFS website to reserve a space if required. All seating at all events is unreserved, so rock up and sit wherever you like.
