Films at Heart 2018-04-10T17:35:16+00:00

Films at Heart is a not-for-profit group run by volunteers. Members and non-members are equally welcome. We are part of Headingley Development Trust.

We screen contemporary independent films from around the world that you may have missed the first time round or that had only limited exposure.

Membership is still just £10 per year and can be taken out on any screening night – just ask a committee member.
Membership provides an opportunity to be involved in the running of the club and to help choose the films we show, as well as saving money on ticket prices every time you come to see a film. We also have a newly updated DVD library that members are entitled to borrow from at no further cost.

Films at Heart screens on the second Tuesday of every month September to July.  Check our programme on HEART’s ‘What’s On’ listing pages.

Films start at 8pm and tickets are available on the door from 7.30pm on screening nights and are priced as follows:
