Richmond Film Society

Richmond Film Society was formed in 1963 and has since screened over 800 films. Our objective is to bring our community the very best in World Cinema. Our seasons run from September to June and attract an aggregate audience of over 4,000 attendees.

Films are shown at 8.00pm sharp on alternate Tuesdays (no trailers and no ads) and are screened at The Exchange. On screening nights, the Bar is open from 7.00pm and remains open after the film. Drinks can be taken into the auditorium and coffee, tea and snacks are also available. Film notes are provided for each screening and audience feedback is obtained via response slips.

See for full details of our forthcoming Season 57 programme.

Our Venue

Since January 2018, we have screened all our films at The Exchange, the community facility opposite Twickenham Station at 75 London Road, Twickenham, TW1 1BE. Its facilities include a very comfortable, tiered 285-seat theatre, lifts, disabled access, a bar and a café. 

The Exchange is directly opposite Twickenham station, which is served by trains to and from Waterloo, Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Kingston and Reading. Bus routes 110, 267 and 281 stop outside The Exchange, the 290 stops in Arragon Road and the 33, 490, H22, R68  and R70 all stop in central Twickenham, which is a 5 minute walk away.  

There is no onsite parking at The Exchange and no public parking on the Brewery Wharf Estate. There is, however, free car parking nearby at: 

• Waitrose Arragon Road multi-storey car park from 6pm to
• Holly Road car park from 6:30pm 
• Local streets from 6:30pm

Season 57 Membership - 10 September 2019 to 16 June 2020
For the forthcoming season, there will be a cap on membership of 250, so as to ensure that all members attending screenings have a seat, that capacity is not exceeded and that all attendees can watch the films in comfort. Over 80% of existing members renewed during the June priority period, whilst those on the waiting list have until 31st July to join before membership is opened to all from 1 August - provided that the limit of 250 members has not been reached. Details of the availability - or otherwise - of membership will appear on the RFS website at the beginning of August - A Subscription Membership Form can also be downloaded from our website.

Should membership for Season 57 be closed, there will always be a number of tickets available to purchase for individual screenings.

For the forthcoming Season 57, the membership fee has been held at £40, so that the cost of the 19-film programme is the equivalent of £2.11 per film

For full time students, membership will continue to be offered at the concessionary rate of £25 for the season.
Non-Member Tickets
Non-member tickets are £5 (full-time students £3). Tickets can be purchased in advance from The Exchange’s Box Office – in person, by telephone on 020 8240 2399 or online - or, alternatively, on the night (cash only).
The number of non-member tickets available via The Exchange’s Box Office is currently capped at 60 per film in order to enable the Committee to determine how many tickets should be available for sale on the door at any given screening. Cash sales on the night will, therefore, also be limited and, to be guaranteed a ticket, we recommend early advance booking via The Exchange.
