SHREWSBURY FILM
 
 

Welcome to Season 7

It never ceases to amaze us that the supply of excellent world cinema films never seems to be exhausted. All but 2 films are from this decade, and 75% of the films were released in the past 2 years.

However, we would like to give a special mention to the 'oldies' in the list. Both are English language films. The Third Man is an absolute stone-cold classic - the very best of British cinema, whilst Broadway Danny Rose is one of the most endearing films of any era, in any language, and from any country.

 

All films are shown at the Hive, 5 Belmont, Shrewsbury SY1 1TE. Tickets are £6 on the door.
Films start at 8pm with the bar open from 7:30pm.
Sunday films start at 4pm, with the bar open from 3.30pm.

Thirty advance tickets are available from the Hive, either online via their website or by dropping in (Tuesday to Friday). Some of our films are very popular so if you choose to turn up on the night, try to get there early to avoid disappointment.
