Who are we?

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.

Covid-19 Update

We started the season as planned on 16th Sept with two showings at 5:30 and 8:00pm as usual. Due to the Covid-19 constraints currently in place we are restricting the size of each audience and all audience members will be required to wear a face mask. A free online booking system for members is in place. Click (READ MORE) for the next film for more details.

When and where?

Films are projected on state of the art digital equipment in a 250-seat auditorium in Macclesfield’s historic Old Sunday School, close to excellent parking areas and restaurants.


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.
