We Love Film

Welcome to the Godalming Film Society Website

We LOVE film!

We are a members only society which celebrates cinema by screening films that are rarely seen on the main circuit, with an emphasis on world cinema. We screen over 20 films on most Tuesdays from September to May at the Borough Hall in Godalming.


Our next screening in the Borough Hall will be Tuesday 1st February for “The Hippopatamus”. Despite government guidance changing, we are still committed to providing as safe a space as possible.  Our recommendations are below:

  • Take a rapid lateral flow test before attending a screening. If the test is positive, please do not attend a screening
  • When you arrive, please check in to the Borough Hall venue via your NHS smartphone app or by signing in by the entry door to the hall
  • Wear a face mask when moving around the venue and also during the screening
  • Respect social distancing when queuing at the membership desk, the refreshment desk and the lending desk
  • Use the hand sanitisers we have available
  • Seat yourself with consideration for others and respect for social distancing

Guest tickets are available as usual.   The ongoing COVID-19 situation may mean that changes and cancellations will need to be made at short notice; please check this website for updates – especially before attending a screening.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday - doors open at the usual time of 7:15 pm!
