Film club

Blacktown City Libraries runs a film club on the third Saturday of each month, where we show a film on our large screen at the Max Webber Function Centre, Blacktown.

You are then invited to stay for a discussion on the various issues of the film: the director, the actors, controversial issues about the film and you get to enjoy a conversation and learn a few things too.

Due to social distancing requirements we are limiting the attendance to 20. You can book online. These bookings will be advertised on our Facebook page and the event pages here.
