About us

Who are we?

We are a not for profit community cinema, run by volunteers, screening amazing films each month from New Earswick Folk Hall, York. We have secured funding from a variety of streams including the City of York Council, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, New Earswick Residents Forum and the British Film Institute. We aim to screen our films on the last Friday of each month and our events start at 7pm with drinks and music. We also run special one off collaborative events and season’s of kids films so check out our website www.filmfolkhall.com or our facebook www.facebook.com/filmfolkhall

What makes us special?

Our group aims to be more than just a cinema. As well as blockbusters and family favourites, we want to find award winning films that shed light on subjects that affect our society. We want to bring you exciting and thought provoking events on these subjects and we want to offer somewhere safe, inclusive and supportive to enjoy such events with like minded people.

Most of all we want everyone to feel welcome through our doors. Whether with friends or on your own, whether caring for or being a person living with an illness, whatever your beliefs or background, we hope to welcome you to one of our events soon!
