TIC Film Club is the place which welcomes communities in Thurrock who have an interest in films. It is a friendly, informal club.

Here, people can come along and enjoy the experience of watching and talking about films. People can suggest films they would like to see and also come along to show the films they might have made. We would love you to share these films with us.

We are happy to accommodate as diverse a range of themes and films as far as we can, particularly if they reflect the wishes and interest of members.

TIC Film Club is free to join but we have to charge a little to cover screening costs, like license fees for films and venue overheads if necessary.

Some of our events we host have monthly slots whilst others are set at random.



Once a year, we have TIC Film Festival in September. We welcome suggestions of films that you would like to see screened at the Festival. We particularly like to programme less well-known films or those banned in their countries of origin, many of which are international or made by British diverse filmmakers. Audiences will have the opportunity to partake in planned panel Discussions around themes explored in these films.


A Beautiful Mind Cinema Club provides dementia-friendly film screenings so that people who live with dementia can spend quality time with their loved ones in a supportive environment without the anxiety that mainstream film screenings might create.

This is held on the last Wednesday of each month. Doors open at 12.45pm and screenings are at 1.30pm. 

Our LGBT films are on random dates. A Fantastic Woman, the winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, will be screened on Wed 21st November to mark Transgender Day of Remembrance. Doors open at 7 pm.

The film is about Marina, a waitress and singer. She and Orlando, an older man, are in love and are planning for the future. When Orlando suddenly falls ill and dies, Marina is forced to confront his family and society – to show them who she is – complex, strong, forthright, fantastic.


 Our main venue is a Film Hub South East member venue where the majority of our films are screened.
