Welcome to Buxton Film

Your one and only cinema in Buxton

Each week we screen one or more great films from somewhere in the world.

We try to show the best recent films wherever they are made. The full programme for January – March can be downloaded here or look out for the printed version. Click on the diary page for a simple listing.

If you’d like to receive information about all of our screenings and other benefits please go to the ‘Join Buxton Film’ page.

Buxton Film Festival 2017

5th Annual Film Festival April 10 – 17

Programme announced

As ever, we’ve selected the best films we could find for this year’s festival. With 3 films a day there will be lots of choice for everyone.

With the generous help from Film Hub North West Central, we also have a special series of events to commemorate the director Robert Stevenson who was born in Buxton.

Lots more to come but for an early look at the programme – see here.


The Pauper’s Pit is no more!

You will have heard that our lovely little Pauper’s Pit cinema in the Old Hall Hotel is to be part of The Crescent development so we’ve now dismantled it.
We’d like to thank Louise and Sally Potter for their support in making the space available to us over the years. We will miss its unrivalled atmosphere.


Young Programmers Project

Buxton Film is keen to involve younger people in the process of programming and promoting good film. We are grateful to Film Hub North West for supporting us in a year-long project to pursue this aim.

If you are 16—25 and would like to be involved in selecting, marketing and organising the screening of films in town please get in touch or come along and speak to one of us.

The final film in this year’s project is

American Honey (15) on Thursday 9th March

Although the project ends soon we will still be welcoming anyone to get involved – so do get in touch.
