Founded in 1924 - Our association and its members

We are an association of men and women who have worked in the cinema, film  and television industry for not less than 30 years. 

There are many attractive benefits and concessions available to our members. Follow this link to Learn more about us



Most cinemas are opening slowly, mainly due to the delayed release of Tenet and other pictures, one of which is expected to be Disney's Mulan.  All the main circuits should be open in time for the Tenet release which is scheduled for Wednesday, 26th August.  We can expect that they will then be open all day, every day as before.  We recommend that you do not try to use your pass until 7th September at the earliest.  If you can, check direct with the cinema before you go, as all screens will have limited capacity in order to maintain social distancing.  Until then, you might find that the pass will be accepted at the week-end for early performances as the cinema manager does have discretion.  We suggest that you try and talk to him/her in person to find out.



We know that some members have been experiencing difficulties with their annual membership renewals   This is partly due to ongoing delays to the refurbishment of 22 Golden Square, resulting during the last year in two moves to temporary office accommodation, along with two mail redirections.   In addition during the COVID-19 emergency we are all now operating from home and another mail redirection has been put in place.  This has resulted in our membership cards are being sent out later than usual, and has also meant that there has been a delay in banking cheques. 


The office and members of your Executive Committee have been working hard round the clock to get membership cards to you and we ask you to please bear with us during this challenging period.  On account of these unique circumstances all memberships will continue to be valid after 31 March this year.


If you are experiencing any problems, please leave a message on 020 7287 2976 and we will get back to you as soon as we can.


Meanwhile stay safe and keep well
