- $15 for a student, school age child or a concession

The SPAT Film Society is a non-profit group which screens four films each calendar year. As a SPAT Film Society member you will be given plenty of notice of our screening dates by email. In addition we always publish the screening dates on our website as well as erecting street signs in the local area.
Our movies are screened in the CWA Hall, 15 The Drive, Stanwell Park and start at 7.30pm.
Thanks to the generosity of The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) we are able to screen our films using a high quality video projector. We appreciate the support of ANSTO.
The SPAT Film Society was started in 1999, by a small group of enthusiast led by David Gosden. David purchased a screen, tracked down a couple of 16mm projectors and joined the National Library of Australia (Film and Video Lending Collection). Over the next few years, the film society screened a number of films, from silent to unusual. With lots of help we became a small but successful society and another good example of the broad nature of SPAT.
Around 2005 we have had the opportunity to use a video projector, increasing greatly the number of available films that we can screen. We now source films from the ABC, Roadshow, Madmen and Tri-Star Columbia, to name a few, in-addition to the National Film Library.
Our main aim is to screen good entertaining films.
