A big thank you to the many of you who stayed behind after our film Tangerines to attend the society’s AGM. It is very gratifying for those of us on the committee to have such an appreciative and supportive membership.

Our films for next season have now been agreed, and the programme was distributed at Tuesday’s film. To see a list of the films, please click here.

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, and our audiences have steadily grown since we started in 2011 as The Hythe Film Society.

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 and also in the interval of longer films, when tea and coffee are also offered.

New members (there is currently 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.

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.


£5 on the door, or £3 for Hythe Cinema Card holders. Please arrive in good time to avoid disappointment, as we sometimes sell out before the start of the film. Cinema Card holders can buy tickets in advance from the Temptations Card Shop from a week after the previous film up until the Saturday before the film.

Hythe Cinema Cards

Cinema Cards can be bought for £10 for the season and allow access to any film for just £3.

These also allow you to buy a ticket for yourself and partner in advance:

  • after the film at the preceding film night, or
  • by visiting, in person, Temptations Gift Shop at 60 Hythe High Street, from three weeks before the film up until the Saturday before the film. You will need to show your cinema card.

The Cinema Cards have sold out for the 2016/17 season.


To come to a film, you need to join the Hythe Community Cinema. Membership is free and can be arranged quickly on the door. The minimum age is 16. We will need your name. We will also ask for contact details so that we can deliver a programme to you at the start of the season, email reminders about the next film and phone you in the unlikely event of a film being cancelled at the last moment; supplying these contact details is optional.
