Film Club

Andover Film Club
The club is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to bring films to Andover that would not normally be seen there on the big screen. These include British Independent Films, Art-House films, classics that deserve to be seen on the big screen and World Cinema.
The films are chosen by the members and are shown at the Reel Cinema on the first Monday of every month. In future, it is planned to hold discussion groups to explore aspects of the films presented and the possibility of further events such as studio tours, film locations and festivals is being considered.
For further information, see the web site http://www.andoverfilmclub.org/ or email info@andoverfilmclub.org.
