Worthing Cinema: Past, Present & Future – A Celebration

Worthing Film Club are working with Screen WoLFF to celebrate all things cinema. Featuring an interactive exhibition & film screenings that celebrate the rich history & current local filmmakers in & around Worthing.


By day, a free week-long event charting the history of film and cinema in our town: from early pioneers to innovative upcoming animators.

By night; TWO ticketed special screenings of feature-length films with a Worthing connection.

PAST: an exhibition of Worthing ‘ghost’ cinemas with carefully-curated archival footage & stills, pioneering silent films and locals’ childhood memories of Worthing’s forgotten cinemas.

PRESENT: a look at our wonderful independent cinema history and their colourful and precarious journeys throughout the last century.

FUTURE: a continuous showreel of short films from local filmmakers – history in the making!

There will also be an opportunity for YOU to share your stories and be a part of this fascinating Worthing archive.
