The Walton and Weybridge Film Society
The Walton & Weybridge Film Society is one of the oldest film societies in the UK.
During the winter of 1963/64 a group of local residents were stimulated into forming a film society
in the area. There was a common interest in world cinema and also a wish to offer the people of
Walton and Weybridge an opportunity to further their knowledge and enjoyment of films not
readily available at that time outside the West End of London.
