Bideford Film Society

The Bideford Film Society was formed in September 2001 and shows films at the Bideford College Theatre on the Abbotsham Rd.

A grant was received from the Bridge Trust and Bideford Town Council which enabled the Society to hire the first film. A film is shown every two weeks except when the Theatre is needed by the School. Films are shown at seven thirty in the evening on Friday and Saturday nights (no trailers or advertisements are shown)
