. The Old Gazette Film Society is a sub-committee of the Dorrigo Dramatic Club Inc. It was 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. It's a wonderful community event and a great opportunity to meet new people and enjoy films, food and conversation. Basically, membership is a bargain at $5 a screening. Members have the opportunity to see 12 films a year. You can see the films for the coming year on the Calendar.
Film nights are organised and run by volunteers. So please offer to come and help us serve refreshments or assist us with other tasks.
Change of date: Due to a Drama Club children's production at the theatre, please note the date of our November film Benediction will now be 24 November.
Next Film Friday, 27 October 7.00 pm for a 7.30 pm start The Banshees of Inisherin Two lifelong friends find themselves at an impasse when one abruptly ends their relationship, with alarming consequences for both of them.
