Thanet Film Society summer recess

Our Spring Season has now concluded and we enter our summer break. The Palace Cinema is still showing its regular programme all summer, but we will return in September with our Autumn 2015 season.

We will be meeting to select the films for our next season late July or early Augusts, so if you have any suggestions for films that you would like to see included, be sure to let us know by then.

In the mean time we'd like to thank everyone who contributed to the Nepal Earhquake appeal. The total sum donated, which was made up from a combination of donations at the door and the ticket revenue for the final screening, was £144.


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.
