Welcome to Penwith Film Society, showing the best new and classic cinema from around the world to audiences in West Cornwall.
You don’t need to be a Penwith Film Society member to come along, you’re very welcome.
Thanks to the generosity and hard work of staff at Merlin Cinemas we are really pleased to announce the Penwith Film Society will be returning to the Savoy cinema, Penzance for a trial season this Autumn.
Things have really moved on at the Savoy since we were last there: marvellous new screens and a great cafe/restaurant.
We've chosen a season in which you will find plenty of cinematic gems, from brand new films from around the planet to well-loved classics.
All the films are bookable straight away, so we recommend you buy your seats as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Our films will now be shown on Sundays in the early evening - almost always at 6pm, 5pm if the film is a long one, on screen 2.
On a remote mountaintop, a rebel group of commandos perform military training exercises while watching over a prisoner (Julianne Nicholson) for a shadowy force known only as 'The Organization'. After a series of unexpected events drives them deep into the jungle, fracturing their intricate bond, their mission slowly begins to collapse. Set against a stunningly beautiful but dangerous landscape, Described by Guillermo del Toro as "mesmerizing" and named director Landes as "a powerful new voice in cinema", this awe-inspiring film is a breathtakingly epic vision that will leave you both mesmerised and utterly gripped.
Monos, in its surreal power and persuasiveness, deserves to be called a sci-fi epic of the here and the now.
Nigel Andrews Financial Times
An experience at once jagged and lyrical, brutal and beautiful, angry and abstract, scattered and wholly singular.
