PebbleCreek Cinema Society

We are delighted to announce that the exciting world of film returns to PebbleCreek Nov. 18 in the Renaissance Theater. Once again Cinema Society Director, Andy Friedenberg will be bringing carefully selected films to delight our hearts and provoke our minds. After a long break due to the pandemic, where our sixth season consisted of optional virtual films to buy, this news is indeed exciting!

Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 9 a.m., all previous season renewing pass holders may begin the renewal process.
Previous season subscribers must bring their hard card pass and lanyard with them when they pay for the season. Please note that we now only accept credit card or member charge for payment. No need to rush, renewing seats are guaranteed through Sept. 24.

Sales for new memberships will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 28 at 9 a.m., subject to availability.

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.

Mark your calendar with the following reserved dates to be sure you don’t miss any of these excellent programs: Nov. 18, Dec. 16, Jan. 27, Feb. 10, March 10 and April 7.  A list of the films being offered can be found by scrolling down on this page.

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.
