Season 57 Membership update

Please note that membership for the forthcoming season has now closed.

The designated membership cap of 250 has been reached. Based upon our capacity and experience of attendances over the last 18 months at The Exchange, there will, however, always be a substantial number of tickets available to purchase for individual screenings


Season 57 runs from 10 September 2019 to 16 June 2020.

The membership fee has been held at £40, so that the cost of the 19-film programme is the equivalent of £2.11 per film. For full time students, membership will continue to be offered at the concessionary rate of £25 for the season.

Membership for Season 57 closed


Owing to renewals from nearly 85% of our existing members and a very high proportion of joiners from our Membership Waiting List, the designated membership cap of 250 has been reached. Accordingly, we are not in a position to offer any further memberships for Season 57, which commences on 10 September.


There will, however, always be a substantial number of tickets available to purchase for individual screenings, both in advance from The Exchange’s Box Office or on-the-door (cash only).


  • Free admission to all nineteen screenings.

  • Free admission to the Christmas party.

  • Programme notes for each film.

  • Input into future film selection.

  • Details of other local arts-related events through our affiliation with Arts Richmond.



On screening nights, the bar opens at 7:00pm, drinks can be brought into the auditorium and coffee, tea and snacks are also available. Films start at 8:00pm sharp, with no trailers or ads.

Please note that, like other entertainment and arts venues, The Exchange is unable to offer refunds for advance ticket purchases save in the unlikely event that a screening is postponed or cancelled. 

Non Member            £5.00

Full-Time Students   £3.00

Up to 60 tickets can be purchased in advance from The Exchange’s Box Office - in person, by telephone on 020 8240 2399 or online at:


To ensure that you secure a ticket, early pre-booking via The Exchange is recommended. A further 50 or so tickets will be available to purchase on the door on the night of screenings  on a ‘first-come-first-served’ basis.


Regrettably the Society is unable to accept credit card or contactless payments for tickets on the night. Cash only.


Non-members are always very welcome, so please come and join us at The Exchange.
