Films at Heart is a not-for-profit group run by volunteers and is part of Headingley Development Trust.
Our monthly screenings at HEART take place on the second Tuesday of each month except during August. We use modern equipment and screenings are sociable events, giving audience members the opportunity to drink and chat before and after the film.
The films are a mixture of English language and subtitled, fiction and documentary.
Although you don’t have to be a member to enjoy our programme, membership is vital in supporting the film club to continue to thrive. Annual membership now costs just £10. Members pay £4 per ticket compared with £6 for non-members, and £5 concessions (students, 60+, unwaged). If you come to all eleven films we screen in a year, that’s quite a saving overall. We won’t swamp you with emails – usually just 2 per month and you’ll get a chance to borrow from our updated DVD library. Members play a major role in making choices about the films we show – from a shortlist of contemporary independent films from around the world, selected by the committee.
