Mission Statement

We are a group of film lovers dedicated to offering our community a broad range of movies not otherwise available on our local big screens.

We select films from a menu of contemporary "hot picks" offered by "The Circuit", a division of the Toronto International Film Festival.

We are a not-for-profit group and periodically we will make contributions to Northumberland County charities when a cash surplus permits.

Films are shown at the Northumberland Mall Theatres in Cobourg, Ontario at 4.00 pm on selected Sundays.  We also produce a Film Festival on the last weekend in January.
