"Let's fill the world with cinemas"

Scalarama 2017

1 - 30 September 2017

the annual celebration of Cinema

for everyone, by everyone, everywhere, every September

Scalarama screenings, meetings and posters from across the years.

Every September, cinemas, film clubs and festivals plus groups and individuals with a passion for movies, unite to celebrate watching films together. Since 2011, this annual celebration sees September transform into a month of amazing films, screened in various locations and by all different types of people - some old hands, some completely new to creating cinema!


Scalarama is by everyone, for everyone, everywhere, with DIY in its veins! There's no cost to being involved, and we hope you find new activities and locations in your area.


Scalarama 2017 is confirmed to take place in the UK in Leeds - Manchester - Glasgow - Brighton - London - Bristol - Nottingham - Liverpool - Birmingham - Hull and in France Toulouse.
