Welcome to Valley Film Society

Based in East Garston, Berkshire, in the Lambourn valley, we offer films across a wide range of genres, including foreign subtitled, black & white classics as well as British Independents. After many successful years, we are now in our seventeenth season.

Films are shown on the first Tuesday of the month, November to July, in East Garston Village Hall, with matinee and evening screenings.

The matinee is at 2.30pm with doors opening at 2pm. Tea and cake are available to buy before the film.

The evening screening is at 7.30pm; the doors and bar are open from 7pm. Orders are taken at the door up to 7.20pm for food to be delivered during the interval. Please bring cash to cover food and entry payments as we do not have a card machine.

We boast a widescreen HD 720p projector with HDMI, digital 5.1 surround sound, Blu-ray/DVD, raised seating and convivial atmosphere. There is disabled access.

Membership for Season Seventeen (2022/23), consisting of up to 9 films, costs £32. You can join at any film showing - you can save time by printing and filling in the membership form and bringing it along. Members are welcome to go to either matinee or evening screenings.

Guests are also welcome to pay £6 per film on the door. For more information please ring 07768 981658 or 07791 991658. Do pass on this information to anyone else you know who might be interested in our film screenings.

For details of season seventeen films, click here. Most of our screenings use a standard BD or DVD and the classifications shown here are for that medium. Where a BD or DVD ("Video") certification is not available, the film's original theatrical rating is used. Click the IMDb and BBFC logos for more information about each film. The BBFC links are for the original theatrical releases because these usually have more detailed information about content. Timings are for the medium in use. DVD versions are, for technical reasons, always slightly shorter than most BD and all theatrical versions.
