The Old Gazette Film Society is a sub-committee of the Dorrigo Dramatic Club Inc. formed in 2016 by a group of committed Dorrigo residents to provide an environment to share film, food and conversation on the Plateau.
We are a member of the Australian Film Societies Federation who issue to us, for a small fee, licences to show specific movies to our members. Due to licensing restrictions, you must be a member of the Film Society to attend screenings which are then free. Members are allowed to bring one guest along per calendar year and a guest may attend twice before needing to become a member.
Film nights are organised and run by volunteers. So please offer to come and help us serve refreshments or assist us with other tasks.
Go to Calendar to see the films for the first half of the year.
