Magdalen Film Society

Magdalen Film Society is about watching films - simple as that!

We are lucky enough to have our own cinema space in Magdalen college, with an enormous screen, 200 seats, and even fancy automated curtains (see right). This is your chance to see brilliant films the way they were meant to be seen.

We show everything from 'the classics' to the most interesting new movies, as well as foreign films, independent cinema, and the occasional guilty pleasure.

Our screenings are also excellent value - anyone can come for just £3 a night. This gets you into both films where applicable, and free wine or juice.

It's even cheaper if you become a member: you can get free entry to all our films for £10 for a term, £20 for a year or £45 for life.

Screenings take place in the Magdalen auditorium, entrance on Longwall Street (map).
