2017 was another great year for cinema and the Prom Coast Film Society, with numbers remaining consistently high throughout the year. The Committee would like to thank all our members including those intrepid members who braved cold and blustery winter screenings.
To round off the 2017 season the Film Society screened a Taika Waititi New Zealand double feature, ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’ and the vampire mockumentary ‘What we do in the Shaddows’. Both were very funny and well received. Hunt for the Wilder people scored a solid 4.6, making it the most popular film of our 2017 season.
For our eighth film society season, 2018 holds many delights in store for members. Yet again the Committee has left no stone unturned in their search for a top program. Here’s a glimpse of the program for 2018.

And for those of you who don’t know, the Prom Coast Film Society screens films on the first Friday of each month at the Fish Creek Hall, Falls Road. Films commence at the new time of 7:30pm with wine available for purchase prior. Screenings are followed by a delicious supper available for members and guests for a gold coin donation. The Film Society operates under the terms and conditions of the Federation of Victorian Film Societies (FVFS), which means that only members or subscribers can attend films. We are unable to offer single night tickets. However, you can purchase subscriptions at any of the films. For a full year (14 films in 2018) the cost is $60 which is less than $5 per film. Alternatively, for $25 you can buy a 3 consecutive month subscription. Please feel free to come along and see a range of excellent films in a friendly, relaxed setting.
