We hold film screenings once a month, from September to July, in the Squire Theatre at The Ark in Basingstoke.
Started in 2003, the Pelican Film Society shows films which either never made it to Basingstoke, or which came and went too quickly for most of us to see. It’s a great opportunity to see recent, art-house and classic films on the huge screen at The Ark Conference Centre.
Even better, it is all in support of a great cause, as all profits from the screenings go to Pelican Cancer Foundation to fight below the belt cancers. The charity is dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for bowel, bladder, prostate and secondary liver cancer patients. Since its inauguration, the Film Society has raised over £18,000 for the charity to help improve treatment for below the belt cancers through research and education for cancer specialists.
