Film at the James

The Friends of the James Theatre Inc will present a varied program of films including recent release movies, school holiday programs, ‘arthouse’ films on the 3rd Sunday of the month, our classic film series Down Memory Lane, and small film festivals like Agog – a feast of foreign films, and Flickerfest.

Tickets prices for recent release movies, and single ticket Dungog Film Society and Down Memory Lane movies, are $12 for adults, $8 for children and $35 for a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children/or 1 adult and 3 children). You can also buy a 10 ticket multipass for just $100, which gives you entry to all our regular films in 2017.
