Queenstown Film Society

QUEENSTOWN
Film Society

Tuesdays 8 pm at Dorothy Browns Cinema, Arrowtown
from 4 May 2021

Queenstown Film Society is all about movies. Great movies that you wouldn't otherwise get to see on the big screen. Old movies. Obscure movies. World cinema. Documentaries.
 
We're a community organisation that gets together on winter Tuesdays to watch fine movies cherry-picked from the last century of cinema. It’s easy to become a member and great value at just $120 for the season of 20 films. We can't sell single tickets but if you want to get a taste before joining, why not come along to one of our public screenings.
