JBFC Film Club Subscriptions

Each evening of the JBFC Film Club begins at 7:30 pm with an introduction by the host, who announces the film selection at that time. The surprise element is one of the fun highlights of this preview club, giving viewers the opportunity to discover films they might ordinarily miss. The host also leads a lively post-film discussion, expanding the overall experience of the film and providing a chance for the audience to share, and learn a bit more about film. Recent selections have included Brooklyn, 45 Years, and The Lady in the Van.

  • The film club meets monthly beginning at 7:30 pm on a previously scheduled Monday or Tuesday (subscribers subscribe to a specific series of dates).
