Membership of the Wellington Film Society enables you to see a range of world cinema you won’t see on the big screen anywhere else.  Membership gives you free entry to all our screenings.

Sounds great, take me to the join-up form!

Our full year membership runs for twelve months from joining.  All full year members also qualify for generous discounts at the New Zealand International Film Festival in July/August, as well as discounts at Wellington cinemas and Aro Video.

  • $3.00 off each full priced ticket at the New Zealand International Film Festival
  • Discounts at most other Film Festivals

All our screenings are at the Paramount Theatre at 6:15pm each Monday (except public holidays and during the Film Festival, which this year runs from Friday 28 July to Sunday 13 August)

That’s 33 screenings for less than $3 a movie – just $95 yearly, with discount and Youth membership even less.  And you can try a Three-Film Sampler and upgrade to a full membership later.
