PebbleCreek Cinema Society

It’s hard to believe that our cinema season is nearly over already! Andy has brought us another batch of incredible films. I think our season-closing film may be the best yet this year; we shall see what you all think. You will have the chance to cast your vote by ballot for your favorite on April 7, immediately following the screening of "Champions." See the bottom of this page for a full listing of the films we've seen this season.

It is my pleasure to share that we will have a Summer Cinema Series again this year! We had such fun with Leonard Maltin last summer that Andy and I have been hard at work planning what we think will be a really fun way to spend your Thursday afternoons this summer! Beginning in June, and running through September, we are going to bring you the Best of UK Summer Cinema Series, featuring four carefully selected film-favorites all made in, and featuring, the United Kingdom. This program is exclusive to PebbleCreek and we think you are going to love it!

A minimum participation is required to be able to bring the series, so we prefer you commit to participate using your member charge, which will be charged once we reach the minimum. Credit/Debit card is also accepted.

2022-2023 Cinema Society Season
I am also very pleased to announce that Cinema Society will return again for another season next year, November through April. I will announce later on in the year when you can begin to renew your membership for the fall series. As always, existing members will have the first opportunity to secure a spot for the season; a great advantage, as we did sell out this year.

A typical Cinema Society program includes a cinema chat, formal introduction, screening of a feature film premiere, classic, documentary and/or short subject, followed by a discussion. The morning events can include a guest speaker; a critic or occasionally an actor, director or studio representative involved with the film’s production. Speakers share their expertise with you, providing a forum to discuss various aspects of the movie.

Your membership includes private monthly screenings, transferable membership admission card with PebbleCreek lanyard (pass it on to others if unable to attend an event), socializing with fellow film lovers, informative discussions, monthly newsletter that previews upcoming film and any activities and hosted national and international film festival trips (for an additional fee). All films screen at 10 a.m. sharp in the Renaissance Theater, unless noted otherwise.

Only season ticket holders may attend Cinema Society viewings. Guest passes for out-of-town, non-PebbleCreek residents may be purchased prior to any showings.  Please note there will be a $5 replacement fee for any lost membership cards. Seating is open on a first-come, first-served basis. No food or drinks, other than bottled water is permitted in the Renaissance Theater. And please note that your membership card is required for entry to all movies.

See you at the movies!
