Join Us

The Wellington Film Society is open to everyone.  Most screenings are open to members only, and Censor’s ratings apply.
Join or renew online and your card will be ready to be picked up at the next screening.  Membership gives you free entry to all our screenings. New members can join at any time of the year, with membership running for 12 months from the month of joining.

Screenings are in the Grand at the Embassy Theatre, 10 Kent Terrace, at 6.15 pm Mondays from 2 March to the end of November. That’s 36 screenings for less than $3.50 a movie – just $120 yearly, with Discounted and Youth membership even less.  And you can try a Three-Film Sampler and upgrade to full membership later.

The schedule is here.
