Alternative Cinema at Merlin Cinemas



We are delighted to present a season of alternative titles chosen by our Film Programmer in association with Penwith Film Society.
This hand-picked selection of world-leading titles brings the very best indie instant-classics, world cinema, critical darlings, and award-winners to your local cinema for special screenings.
Supported by BFI Film Audiences Network and The National Lottery.

On occasions that a film sells out in advance of the date, we may consider adding an extra screening closer to the time.
