Palmerston North Film Society

Palmerston North Film Society is a non-profit, volunteer-run charity dedicated to showing rare films that are not usually commercially available. For over 60 years we have presented a wide range of local and international documentary and classic film masterpieces.
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN: As well as offering access to the broadest cross-section of films available anywhere, a Palmerston North Film Society membership remains one of the cheapest entertainment deals in town!

How to Join

Please complete the membership form and bring it to the next Film Society screening. Our committee will be at Cinema 2 from 5.30pm to assist you. You can pay by cash (ATM available
on the ground floor of The Downtown) or internet banking.
Membership forms are available at Event Cinemas Palmerston North and on our website.

Membership Fees

Purchasing a waged ($120) or student/unwaged ($100) Membership guarantees its holder admission to all 32 of our 2022 screenings – that’s only $3 - $4 per film! A reduced rate is available for High School students. ID required. Censor’s ratings apply.
A 3-movie Triple Feature Sampler is also available for $30, which may be upgraded to a full membership by simply paying the difference in price. This 3-movie pass is valid for the current year it is taken up.
Please note: Palmerston North Film Society members are required to follow current Event Cinema COVID-19 guidelines at any screening.

When and where we meet

All our screenings take place on Wednesday evenings at Event Cinemas on Broadway at 6pm (Cinema 2). Screenings are held every Wednesday from March to November except during school holidays, public holidays, or during the International
Film Festival.
