Note: Pump House Film Society is open to Pump House members only. 

The Film Society 2021-22 Season is back in person and will be screening monthly movies in the newly renovated Pump House theater!  Your Film Society membership gives you access to nine films over the course of nine months.  Film screening dates are listed below and begin at 5:00 pm.  A light to-go meal is served after each screening at 7:00 pm and is included in your Film Society membership.

Due to reduced theater capacity in respect to Pump House COVID-19 safety guidelines, we are currently accepting new Film Society Members on a monthly waiting list.  Please call the Pump House at 1-608-785-1434 to get on the waiting list. As Film Society members RSVP for monthly movie screenings, availability may open up and persons on the waiting list will be contacted.
