A Bunch of Amateurs12A
Formed in 1932, Bradford Movie Makers is one of the oldest amateur filmmaking clubs in the world, meeting once a week to watch films and work on their own low budget projects. Once a thriving community, these days the membership is dwindling and the group struggle to keep group alive. Kim Hopkins’ hilarious and heart-warming documentary follows the club’s ups and downs, while exploring the enduring power of film and friendship. Winner of the Audience Award at this year’s Sheffield Doc/Fest.
‘A nice reminder that, like all kinds of love, cinephilia isn’t so easy to extinguish.’
Tim Grierson, Screen International

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
