Welcome to the website of the Malvern French Film Centre based at the Coach House Theatre, Malvern.
In 2016 the Coach House Theatre in Malvern, was given the title of a Regional Centre for French Cinema by the London based Institut Français du Royaume Uni. The aim was to provide opportunities for the many fans of French cinema in Worcestershire and adjoining counties to attend regular showings of the best French films, both those being made today and the great classics from the past, in proper big screen conditions.
The initiative was given a warm welcome, and at the launch weekend in November 2016 the French Consul from Birmingham, the Mayor of Malvern, and representatives from Malvern Hills District Council came together to wish it well. A programme of over 20 films was shown during the year 2016-17, and a mailing list of nearly two hundred interested people has been built up.
The films shown during 2016-17 were: Au Revoir les Enfants, Mme. Bovary, Amelie, Le Bossu, Le Diner de Cons, Le Dernier Metro, Orphee, Of Gods and Men, La Famille Belier, Potiche, Monsieur Chocolat, Avril et le Monde Truque, Les Chevaliers Blancs, Made in France, La Grande Vadrouille, Peur de Rien, and to end the year a weekend of six Truffaut films, Les Quatre Cents Coups, Jules et Jim, La Nuit Americaine, Baisers Perdus, Vivement Dimanche, and Argent de Poche.
The programme for 2017-18 is shown on the page 'Programme 2017-18', together with instructions on how to book seats. There are single films on Sundays in September, October, November (two films the same day), January, February, April, May and June.
On March 17th-18th a whole weekend of films will be shown, featuring six all-time Classics of the French cinema. See all the details on the Programme 2017-18 page.
