YESTERDAY  3 January

All our films are presented digitally. Our current projector produces a superb image which is the equal or better than the film projectors that were our mainstay in the past. Where possible we show high-definition material although occasionally distributors only make standard definition material available to us. We hope that you agree that it all looks great on our large cinema screen.

For those who would like to book in advance, we use an online booking system. Buy Tickets buttons appear next to the films where this is available. The same booking system is used by Mid Border Arts so if you've bought tickets online for MBA events your registration/login will be the same. More details in Further Information.

Now and then a booking needs to be amended and the advance printed programme cannot be changed so the website is the best way to make sure that the film you want to see is still on. We screen disc versions of the films as near to the release date for those copies as possible. Occasionally release dates change and this can result in a forced rescheduling of the screening. You can also sign up to our email list on the Contact page and you will be sent an email reminder during the week before each screening. Or enter your full address and we will include you in our posted mailing of the printed programme. We hope you enjoy the movies that you find here and look forward once again to your company at The Assembly Rooms.

Welcome to Presteigne Screen's website and online programme

We are an independent cinema run by volunteers with a passion and fascination for film. Formerly Presteigne Film Society, Presteigne Screen carries on its longstanding ambition to bring our audience a variety of movies from around the world – some mainstream, some that for many will be unknown – presenting a range of the amazing images, stories and personalities that feature in contemporary global cinema. Join us in Presteigne's Assembly Rooms and enjoy our selection for this current season.

Winter–Spring 2021 *** Due to the Coronavirus emergency, for the moment we cannot plan anything definite for this season. We'll be monitoring the situation and will be back as soon as possible. The winter–spring season will not take place due to the lockdowns on both sides of the border. We know there is a demand for screenings when they become possible – unfortunately our tentative explorations of possibilities were cut off by the current restrictions. Discussions are ongoing and we will announce limited trial screenings as and when - in the meantime we wish our audience good health and please stay safe ***

Back as soon as possible
Film starts 8 pm
