Due to Covid-19 and the NHS Test and Trace system in England, we now also require a telephone number for each Member who visits the theatre. This information will only be shared in the need of a T&T emergency.
A membership ticket has a unique identifying number. Membership lasts for one season only and allows you to see any of the relevant season’s films. The usual film age restrictions apply.
Part-Season Membership is offered, usually around Christmas/New Year, for the remainder of the films in the season. This membership ticket also has a unique identifying number and can only be used for the films remaining in that particular season. The usual film age restrictions apply.
Due to restricted seating inside the auditorium, we now have two screenings of each film: a Matinee at 1.30pm and an Evening at 8pm. Membership is taken for either all the season’s Matinee screenings or all the season’s Evening screenings. There can be no swapping due to the limited numbers allowed inside the theatre.
Chiltern Film Society reserves the right to change the film programme.
Refunds / Lost Membership Cards
The Society does not offer refunds to the annual or part-season membership fee. If you have an exceptional circumstance then in the first instance please contact the CFS Treasurer.
