The film club was formed in December 1999, and produced its first short season of 10 films in the period February-April 1999. Based at the Alhambra Cinema, the Club is run by a group of enthusiasts who try to bring the people of Keswick and the surrounding area the best of British and World cinema: high quality, thought-provoking films which are often not given a screening in the local cinemas. More information can be found here.
The Alhambra held it’s Centenary Celebrations in February 2014 in conjunction with the Annual Film Festival held by the Keswick Film Club, when the ten best films for the last century were screened free of charge. A film was commissioned to mark the occasion, recording the memories of many past customers and staff of the cinema.

The private owner of The Alhambra Cinema should be immensely proud of this unique cinema situated in the heart of Keswick offering really interesting films in a beautiful building. A fantastic experience for all ages and a real asset to Keswick. A must do. Superb.

On rainy day in Keswick went to see the 5.30pm showing of 'What we did on our holidays' which is to be recommended. Sat on the balcony and helped ourselves to courtesy coffees with fesh milk from the fridge which was a nice touch. Real feel of nostalgia visiting places like this.

Came across this cinema by chance whilst staying in Keswick. Went to see a movie called The Lunchbox which was a hindi movie, it was a brilliant movie and the cinema had an old fashioned charm to it. Its a real local cinema with a sense of community, we were even offered free Coffee to take in with us. Very friendly.

My husband, son and I visited the Alhambra in August and saw Guardians of the Galaxy. It was our first visit to the cinema and it was such a lovely experience for all of us.
The cinema itself was lovely, the film was good and the way that everyone was made welcome was really lovely. On top of that, it was so nice to have a holiday experience where you didn’t feel you were being ripped off.
