New Season: Southport Film Guild

Southport Film Guild was founded in 1966 by local people and is one of the most established film clubs in the country. The guild pride themselves on showing the very best in films from popular blockbusters, to documentaries, to lesser known but critically acclaimed art house and foreign films.
