We had a full house again for our November film, the powerful Irish tragedy the Field.

Our December film will be the wonderful Eagle Huntress, set in the Altai Mountains in Mongolia. There will also be the chance for the audience to stay behind after the film and enjoy a drink to celebrate the arrival of the Christmas season.

We have already sold 62 tickets for this film (out of a possible 104), and we may well sell out in advance of the night. So, to be sure of a ticket, get to Temptations Card Shop as soon as possible after we place the tickets there, which will be on Tuesday 14th November. Temptations stop selling the tickets on the Saturday before the film.

New members are always welcome. If you would like to join, please see under ‘Membership’ below.

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 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.

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 us 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 sometimes sell out.

Members can buy tickets in advance from Temptations Card Shop in the High Street during the two weeks before the week of the film, and at the preceding film night.


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.
