BACK TO
Quarterly Classics: What makes a film a 'classic' - stars? director? awards? decades of affection? Bracknell Film Society aims to answer this question at least partially in a new regular three monthly slot. The 'FILM LISTINGS' web page will keep you appraised of what is coming next.

A complete BFS showing list from 1960 is available through
the 'HISTORY' ICON at the top of this page.

Links to our previous shows in 2017, 2018 and 2019
are also given at the foot of this page.
