There is always ample seating in Screen 3, where are films are shown.
Background to the Society
The purpose of the Society is to show the best of contemporary and classic world cinema, in a comfortable and sociable setting.
The films have historically been selected partly by the Committee and partly by the votes of Members, although for the last three years, the effects of Covid and the changes in the timing of the programme have left insufficient time to circulate members for their votes.
Welwyn Garden City Film Society is one of the longest-standing film societies in the country, having been established shortly after World War II. In the 2017/18 season, it was felt that the future of the Society was in jeopardy because income from memberships had fallen, while costs continued to rise. Fortunately, through the cooperation of members, who agreed to raise the membership subscription and reduce the number of films to eight, the Society has survived. Inevitably, there has been a reduction in membership, following Covid and consequen lockdowns, causing financial difficulties in the last few years.
