Slaley Film Club shows one film each month, usually on the third Friday, but we have a summer break with no films from May to August. We also provide a supper, but not drinks, during the interval for an inclusive charge of £6 (£3 for under-16s). We feel that this makes the evening more attractive and more of a social event. 

We can take payments online using the button above (which will help us keep track of numbers), or when you arrive at the Hall.

If you would like to receive our emails about forthcoming films, please send a request to Michael Elphick ...

This season's films

Here's a summary of the films showing from September to next April:

For future programmes, if you have an idea for a film or films that you would like to see, just let us know by email to: Michael Elphick. As we have to have a licence to show each film, which we get through the Queen's Hall in Hexham via FilmBank, you need to check that one is available on the FilmBank website: FilmBank catalogue.

BRING YOUR OWN for our January Film!

Our next Film on Friday, January 21st 2022 will be "Fishermen's Friends" and on this occasion we are asking you to "BRING YOUR OWN SUPPER" as well asana drinks ...

A fast living, cynical London music executive (Daniel Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen. 
We are planning to have Dave Johns – who plays "Leadville" and is best known for his role in “I, Daniel Blake” – come to talk after the show about his career and films.

Our history

Organised by: Jean & Michael Elphick, Jeannie & Jason Abdelnoor, Jane & Jim Bailey.The club started out in 2004, inspired by the Queen's Hall "Screen 1" initiative led by Christo Wallers. Since then we have had seventeen successful seasons, thanks to the continued support of the Queen's Hall Arts programme, and our loyal audience. In October 2008 the Hall had its own equipment (projector, amplifier, DVD player and screen) installed by the Queen's Hall staff; we provided some £350 of this cost from our accumulated profits, and now handle all the projection ourselves. In June 2018 we had a new integrated audiovisual system installed, funded in part by our own savings over the years, with £5200 from the Big Lottery Awards for All, and £700 from the Joicey Trust. We look forward to using this in the coming year, and hope that other groups will be able to make good use of this new equipment, for both displays and performances.Audience numbers have increased from around 20-25 initially to an average of 28 last season, and a maximum of 63.The choice of films is basically made by the organisers, with some input from others. Our aim has always been to include a fairly wide variety of films, and to introduce people to some that they might not otherwise think of seeing.
