Next Film

17th February 2016
Hannah Arendt (2012) 113m minutes (sub)
Director: Margarethe von Trotta, Germany

Arendt, a German-born Jewish political theorist, covered the 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann for the New Yorker. Eichmann, in her view, illustrated what she called the “banality of evil”. This upset many Jewish public figures but stimulated others. The film shows her battle with the establishment to justify her views.

Silkscreen Film Society News

Welcome to Silkscreen

Details and trailers of films to be shown during our 2015/16 season which began on September 16th can be found via the "What's On" link at the top of this page.  Last years members have received a new programme and subscription renewal in the post in late July.  Online membership is available on the Join Us page.

Silkscreen Film Society is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers on behalf of its members. Set up in 2001 by a small group of enthusiasts, the Society now has well over 400 members and has established itself as the focal point for people in the area who want to see a wide range of the best films from around the world.
Chosen by a small team of members, films are selected because they have exceptional qualities of direction, acting or cinematography. Our programme runs from September to March and we have two showings, usually at 5.30 and 8.00 pm, on designated evenings.
Films are projected on state of the art digital equipment in a 250-seat auditorium in Macclesfield’s historic Heritage Centre, close to excellent parking areas and restaurants.

Be a Silkscreen friend on Facebook or follow us on twitter.

Existing members can renew their membership once they receive a new programme in July/August.
