Since 2007 Lympstone Film Society has been bringing cinema to the village. The fist film we showed was Cinema Paradiso. With an enthusiastic audience of 100 or more, we have shown recent and older films which are not usually seen in the commercial picture houses. We welcome new members from the village and beyond, and offer social and enjoyable evenings with great entertainment.
   The programme runs from September to April or May, with the Friday films normally screened  the second Friday of the month, and with six Wednesday matinees. And so members can see 15 films each year for their £20 annual subscription.
   Doors usually open at 6.45 pm for the Friday evening showings, so that members can meet beforehand and have a drink from the bar, a friendly and popular social occasion. Screening starts at 7.30 pm. There is usually a short film and advertisements for Lympstone events, followed by an interval where ice creams and drinks are on sale. After the interval we show the main film.
   Excellent programme notes are distributed, which this coming season can also be read in advance on this website. The three Wednesday afternoon classic films are usually preceded by an entertaining talk by Martin Fisher, former Head of Light Entertainment for BBC Radio, who selects this part of the programm. The local films are introduced by Brian Mather.
  Once a year, usually in February,.we serve a very popular meal that precedes a film.

  A lending library of DVDs of films we have shown is free to members. Contact haredding@gmail.com.
