Consequently all cinemas are closed unitl Level 4 is scaled back. So keep well, be nice to each other, and don't forget You Gotta Wash Your Hands!.

  • The Wellington Film Society's screenings are also in suspension which will remain in place until the Ministry of Health advises that it is safe to resume. Anyone can still join the Film Society at any time on line.

  • Film Festivals to note:
