The Regal Film Society
About The Regal Film SocietyThe Regal Film Society screens an annual programme of monthly films for members from September to the end of June. In addition the film society organises fund-raising public screenings of mainstream film titles every month as well as live screenings of opera and ballet from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
The members' programme features at least 11 newly-released films from the UK and around the world. Many of these are independent films which do not receive the exposure they deserve in commercial cinemas. The season of films opens and closes with more high profile titles which are open to the public.
The Regal Film Society has its home in the voluntarily-run Regal Theatre in Minehead, Somerset, is itself entirely run by volunteers and is a member of the MATA Regal Theatre Company Ltd, which runs the theatre.
Founded in 1994, the film society has grown to become the largest film society in the south west and the second largest in the country with nearly 600 members.
