Summer Break

Thanet Film Society is now on its summer break, but the Palace Cinema will continue with its regular programme every day until we return in September.

We will be meeting to discuss our Autumn 2014 programme on 13th July, so if you have any suggestions for films to be screened then get thm to us before then by sending us an email at tfs@thanetfilm.co.uk.

In the mean time keep an eye on review site Cine Outsider, which covers home video releases of many of the films that we screen.

We'll post details of the Autumn season as soon as it is confirmed.

Have a great summer!

 
 

Why our films have to start promptly at 8pm
Although our films are scheduled to start at 8pm, on busier nights we've always been able to hold up the start until everyone is in and seated. With the arrival of digital projection, however, this has all changed. Most of the films we screen now arrive as high definition digital files that are coded to play at a specific time, over which the projectionist has no control. This means that the film has to start playing at 8pm or not at all. Thus to avoid potentially missing the start of the film, it's worth arriving in good time for the screening.
