What is a Film Society?

A film society is an organisation formed by a group of enthusiastic film viewers who prefer to have a say in the selection of films screened. Formed to bring the community together on a regular basis to enjoy films as a form of entertainment, but also to appreciate film making as an art form. It is a community organisation screening films that are not shown in commercial cinemas.
It is a volunteer run, non-profit making organisation, consisting of members who pay a membership fee. It has a
committee who manage the affairs of the society and arrange screenings of the selected films.

What makes Rewind Film Society unique?

The committee members are all passionate about movies, and the president of Rewind Film Society comes from a background of 25 years in the video rental industry.  We want to give YOU the opportunity to re-live those movies that you used to go down to your local video store to hire. The films that Rewind Film Society feature will be those movies released in the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s that you remember on the shelves at you local video store.
Sure you can watch these on many streaming services at home, but we want people to be able to experience them on a stadium sized TV, in a relaxed environment, surrounded by like-minded film fans.

Where are the screenings held?

We have secured a new venue to host Rewind Film Society movie nights.
The Prince Consort, in The Valley - the night-life district of Brisbane city - have been kind enough to provide their Garden Bar which features a stadium sized TV screen, as the place for Rewind Film Society Movie Nights each Monday starting January 10th, 2022.
The Prince Consort is a hip and happenin' joint with unique bar areas to explore.
Its funky vibe suits the Valley, and is a perfect pairing for our retro movie experiences.
They are located at: 230 Wickham St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006.

The very earliest people who made film were magicians."
