News update: 3rd September, 2020.

Having cancelled screening of our films in March 2020 in accordance with the Government’s recommendations Hythe Community Cinema has cancelled the screening of our films until further notice. The committee will be reviewing the situation at a later date and will re-open only when it’s in line with Government’s recommendations to do so.

The money collected from the sale of tickets for our April film, Lucky, that was cancelled has now been donated to AGE UK Hythe. This has been done in accordance with the wishes of our members to support the work of the Community Support Hub in Hythe.

Hythe Community Cinema

Our aim is to screen films from around the world and to promote enjoyment of the artistic medium of film.

We have a reputation for being friendly and welcoming. Our audiences have steadily grown since we started in 2011 as The Hythe Film Society, and we now generally have audiences of over 100 for our screenings.

As well as showing a main film each month, we sometimes also have a talk by a visiting speaker, some extra short films or a get-together over a drink after the film.

Wine and soft drinks are for sale before the films, as well as in the interval of longer films, when tea and coffee are also offered.

New members (there is no charge for membership) are always welcome – more details below.


The Hythe Community Cinema is at the Tin Tabernacle, Portland Road, Hythe, Kent, CT21 6FL. Full disabled access, but please let us know if you have particular requirements.

7.30 on the first Tuesday of the month, from October to July. Doors open at 7.00.


We are a film society and so, to come to a film, you need to join the Hythe Community Cinema. Membership is free and can be arranged quickly on the door. If you don’t want to wait until a film night to join, please email us your details (hythecommunitycinema@gmail.com). Every member will receive a membership card. The minimum age is 16.

When you join, we will need your name. We will also ask for contact details (address, email, phone number) which are useful both for you and us (for instance in the unlikely event of a change of date), but giving these these is optional. We will never pass on your details to a third party without your permission.


Tickets are £4 (on the door or in advance) and £5 for members’ guests. Please arrive in good time to avoid disappointment as we often sell out, or ideally buy your tickets in advance.

Members can buy tickets in advance from Temptations Card Shop in the High Street during the three weeks up to and including the Saturday before  the film, and also at the preceding film night.

We regret we are unable to refund the cost of unused tickets.


As we are a society, we expect the great majority of people who come to our films to be members. However, there will be occasions when, for instance, members have someone staying with them from elsewhere who will only ever be coming to a single film. In such cases guests will be welcomed, but will need to be signed in by a member.
