Join the Film Society | Films Screened | Classes Taught | Related Items At The Library | Past Special Events & Press Coverage

If you have a passion for discussing and learning about films, we invite you to join the Atlantic City Free Public Library Film Society. Membership is free and open to current Library cardholders in good standing, who are 18 years of age and older.
Monthly screenings on Saturday afternoons will be held either at the Noyes Arts Garage located at The Walk in Atlantic City or in the NEXT Step Lab of the Main Library branch. Monthly classes will be held on the previous Thursday evenings in the NEXT Step Lab and will feature a topic related to that Saturday's screening. Occasionally, screenings are held at a local cinema for our anniversary or other events.

Since films of all genres and ratings will be shown, the Film Society is open to adults only and member discretion is advised. Each film's rating and running time will be posted prior to the screening on the Library website and flyers, the Film Society's Twitter page, and other advertising. Snacks will be provided at screenings, and learning materials will be provided at classes.
Further information about the Film Society is provided on the Library's official website on the Film Society page and on Twitter and Letterboxd (@ACLibFilmSoc).
