Shrewsbury Film - Extras

"Roll on Wednesday for the next offering from my favourite place to be"
Maggie Mitchell

Within our first 12 months, it became increasingly clear that there was a demand for more than a main season. We listened and put on a couple of mini seasons, which proved there was an appetite for more.

Now, thanks to a recent cash injection from Film Hub North West Central, we are putting on more films than ever before and can afford to take more risks.

We call these our Extras and include all our mini-seasons, films for festivals as well as one-off films. Sometimes, these films are loosely chosen around a theme, sometimes they are just chosen for being good, or meriting an outing on the big screen.

These films are not part of our main season membership.

All films are shown at the Hive, 5 Belmont, Shrewsbury SY1 1TE. Tickets are £6 on the door.
Films start at 8pm with the bar open from 7:30pm.
Sunday films start at 4pm, with the bar open from 3.30pm.

Thirty advance tickets are available from the Hive, either online via their website or by dropping in (Tuesday to Friday). Some of our films are very popular so if you choose to turn up on the night, try to get there early to avoid disappointment.
