. 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.
Film nights are organised and run by volunteers. So please offer to come and help us serve refreshments or assist us with other tasks.
Next Film The first film for 2023 will be shown on Friday 17 February - 7.00pm for a 7.30 start. Be sure to come, it's a great film that's only recently been in the cinemas. Check out the new 2023 Calendar for an interesting year of films.
