Charlton Kings Film Society
We have really missed being able to bring you the films you love. So that we can get back together as soon as possible, we are starting this season showing a film every three weeks, featuring the ones we missed at the end of the 2019/20 programme. Before Christmas we will be planning the rest of the season, so please do let us know if you have any ideas for future films.
First Film: First Man on Friday 17th September
In the meantime we send you our best wishes and hope you are all staying safe.
