Welcome to The Fleapit Cinema Club!
The Silver Jubilee!
The Fleapit is currently in summer recess and will open its doors again on Friday, 23rd September 2022 to celebrate our Silver Jubilee Season – albeit a year late as we lost a season to COVID.
We have spoken with our friends at The Courtyard and members will be delighted to learn that the pop-up Film Cafe in the Front Meeting Room at the Hall will also relaunch for this season.
Of course, the bar and ice creams will operate as usual.
Welcome to The Fleapit Cinema Club – the home for everyone who enjoys watching great films in good company. Based in Westerham at Westerham Hall, we have modern projection equipment, a 24′ screen (larger than many multiplexes), a licensed bar and fabulous ice creams!
The Fleapit is run entirely by volunteers.
The Fleapit welcomes everyone. Membership covers admission to every screening that season – nothing more to pay unless you fancy a drink or an ice cream. Members may also bring guests for an admission charge of £5.00 per guest per screening.
- Annual Individual Membership – £40
- Individual Concession (student/senior citizen) – £35
- Annual Family* Members – £75
- Family* Concession (student/senior citizen) £65
* A Family Membership covers two or more adults and/or children living at the same address.
You can join at any screening, cash or cheque only – sorry, we don’t have the facilities to accept plastic!
If you’ve never been to the Fleapit before, and fancy giving us a try without committing to a membership, then simply come along and pay a Guest fee. If you enjoy it as much as we are sure you will then join up at the end of the screening and the guest fee will be set against the membership for the season.
Westerham Hall has full disabled access and facilities and our members who use a wheelchair have an unrestricted view of the screen. There is also an induction loop for the hard of hearing and a car park immediately outside the Hall (free after 6:30PM and on Sundays) with disabled bays for badge holders.

1968 / USA / 95 min. / Colour Director: Frank Perry with Sydney Pollack Burt Lancaster, Janet Landgard, Janice Rule, Joan Rivers For a Hollywood A-Lister, Burt Lancaster made a surprising number of highly distinctive, brilliant and often daring, films that are a long way away from his traditional, and equally mesmerising, studio fare. These left-field triumphs include The Leopard, Atlantic City, Soylent Green and, of course, tonight’s film. Lancaster plays Ned Merrill who we meet at a pool party hosted by his old friends, the Westerhazys. As they reminisce, it dawns on Ned that he could reach his home going from swimming pool to swimming pool. He dives in and begins his strange journey... as he moves from adjacent garden to adjacent garden, chatting with the owners at each location, bit- by-disconcerting-bit we learn more about his recent past. Roger Ebert called the film: “a strange, stylized work, a brilliant and disturbing one.” And then there is the fabulous saturated colour and Marvin Hamlisch’s spot-on score – remarkably, his first for a film. Definitely one of this Season’s most striking, original and watchable films.
