Richmond Film Society

Since January 2018, we have been screening all our films at 'The Exchange', a new community facility opposite Twickenham Station. Its address is The Exchange, 75 London Road, Twickenham, TW1 1BE. Its amenites include a very comfortable, tiered 300 seat theatre, lifts, disabled access, a bar and a café. As before, films are shown on alternate Tuesdays at 8.00pm.

Following the success of our relocation to The Exchange in January, we have decided to extend its current Season by two films, namely, ‘Hotel Salvation’ (India) on 8 May and‘Le Havre’ (Finland) on 22 May. These two extra screenings are free to all members in appreciation of making the venue transition so successful. Non-member tickets will, as usual, be available for £6 on the door (cash only), in advance via The Exchange’s Box Office on 020 8240 2399 or online via their website at

We are, in addition, making available a special 5-Film Membership Offer for the remainder of the season at a cost of only £20 -i.e. £4 per film.

Film notes are provided for each screening and audience feedback is obtained via response slips. As affiliates of Arts Richmond, we also provide members with details of other local arts-related events

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: (i) Waitrose Arragon Road multi-storey car park from 6:00pm to midnight; and (ii) Holly Road car park from 6:30pm.  

Richmond Film Society was formed in 1963 and has since screened over 770 films. Our objective was, and remains, to bring our community the very best in World Cinema. Our seasons run from September to April and comprise 15 films of international repute, typically drawing an aggregate audience of over 1,000 members and guests. The 2017/18 season includes films from Estonia, Greece, Romania, Iceland, Colombia, Iran and USA. 

New members are always very welcome and tickets will continue to be available on the night for non-members, particularly in view of the enhanced capacity of The Exchange. Please come along and join us.
