May 4th 2022

Thanks to all of you came to our Japanese film, Shoplifters, last night.

Our next screening on Tuesday 7th June will be the remarkable Yemeni film

I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced.

This based on a true story, and was the first ever Yemeni film submitted for an Oscar.

Tickets will go on sale at WOW! in Hythe High Street on Saturday 21st May.

COVID precautions

For the rest of this season we are limiting our audience number to 60.

Whatever the government rules now are, we feel we still need to offer some protection to people coming to our films. So, out of consideration to others, please:

  • Only come if you’ve been fully vaccinated

  • Wear a mask when you are coming in, but then optional when watching the film (or drinking your wine).

  • If you can take a lateral flow test on the day of the film, that would ideal, but we realise it’s now harder and more expensive to get hold of one. You obviously wouldn’t come if you have COVID symptoms.

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. Before the pandemic, we regularly had audiences of over 100, although for the moment we’ve imposed a limit of of 60.

As well as showing a main film each month, we have sometimes also had 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.

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.

For map, directions and information about parking, please click here.


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 every member will receive a membership card. The minimum age is 16. To join, please:

  • either email us your details (hythecommunitycinema@gmail.com)
  • or get a membership form from WOW! and bring it with you when you come to your first film. You can by your first film ticket from WOW! before you have received your card. 

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 is optional. We will never pass on your details to a third party without your permission.


Tickets are £5, bought in advance from WOW! in the High Street, usually during the three weeks up to and including the Saturday before  the film.

We are no longer, at least for now, selling tickets on the 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.
