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.
Luo Hongwu returns to Kaili, the hometown from which he fled several years ago. He begins the search for the woman he loved, and whom he has never been able to forget. Long Day's Journey Into Night is a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Jue Huang) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological mosaic, the second a nocturnal dream. Again centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you've seen before.
You may carry the echoes of this indefinable masterpiece long after you've awakened from it.

Bi Gan's languid thriller owes a tremendous debt to the likes of Tarkovsky, Malick and Wong Kar-wai even as it forges its own indelible, impressionistic path.
