The Wellington Film Society is open to everyone

Membership gives you free entry to all our screenings, and most screenings are open to members only.

All our screenings are in the 750 seat ‘Grand’ Theatre at the Embassy

You can join at any time of the year, with membership running for 12 months from the month of joining. The cost is just $120 yearly, with Discounted and Youth membership even less.

And you can start with a 3-film sampler and upgrade to a full membership later.

Screenings are on Monday evenings at 6:15pm. at the Embassy Theatre.

Full membership also gives you free admission to screenings of other federated NZ film societies and generous discounts at the New Zealand International Film Festival.

You also qualify for discounts at The Embassy Theatre, Light House Cinemas, Penthouse Cinema (Monday to Thursday only), and The Roxy Cinema.

Plus – your card gives you free entry for a guest at any one screening.

Doors open at 5:30, which gives you time to meet a friend for a snack and drink in the Black Sparrow Cocktail Bar on the Ground Floor.

The Wellington Film Society wants everybody to be able to enjoy our programme of great movies on the big screen. So the front row as you come in, Row F, is reserved for people with mobility issues.

There are ‘reserved’ notices on the seats. Self-recognition is the order of the day.   If you have mobility issues or have a temporary injury and find the steps too taxing, sit in one of these seats and enjoy the film. There is a lift to the left of the entrance foyer so that the whole experience can be step-free!
