The Chelmsford Film Club

The Chelmsford Film Club was founded in 1987 and aims to show some of the best in Independent, Arthouse and World Cinema. Unlike most private Cinema Clubs, which normally meet in libraries and church halls, our films are shown at the Cramphorn Theatre in Fairfield Road (near the Bus Station), with a modern, fully digital projection system and cinema style raked seating.

Our 29th Season opens on Thursday 29th September, at 8PM with Jaques Audiard's critically acclaimed film "Dheepan" (in French, Tamil and English, with Subtitles), and ends on 20th June with the visually stunning marshal arts film "The Assassin". The season also includes "Sing Street" (Ireland) in December and "The Daughter" (Australia, with a stellar cast including Sam Neill and Geoffrey Rush) in October. Please visit our programme page,, for full details.

Annual Club Membership is £60, entitling members to see all 16 films (which works out at just £3.75 per film). Membership forms can be downloaded from our membership page and posted to our Membership Secretary, Sally, or available at the door, from 7:30PM on the night at any of our films. A limited number of guest tickets (£6) are also available at the door prior to each film.
