The Davidson Film Club is a non-profit tax-exempt independent association formed for those who enjoy film as art to view and discuss unique and thoughtful cinematic works in the town of Davidson.
The club’s films are critically acclaimed award-winners from around the world. Many are from under-represented areas in Africa, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, Central and South America, and Asia. We pay public performance rights for all our screenings.
Our films are screened at the Armour Street Theatre in Davidson, home of the Davidson Community Players.
Armour Street Theatre
307 Armour Street
Davidson, NC 28036
The theater features 80 comfortable movie theater-style seats. The seating is tiered, so everyone has a clear view of the screen. Our projection system is cinema-quality HD video, with a 16-foot-wide screen and a professional stereo sound system. On-site parking is free.
On screening nights, doors open at 6:30 p.m. A brief introduction to each film begins at 7:00 p.m. Film run-times are generally 90 to 120 minutes. All non-English language films are subtitled. A discussion period of about 30 minutes follows each film.
All subscribers to our series become members of the Davidson Film Club. Memberships are available at the beginning of each new series and cost $42 ($7/film) for the current series of six films.

Participation in the Film Club
We welcome volunteers to sit on the DFC Board. Board members help with the film selections, present films, and lead discussions.
Discussion Leaders Welcome
If you have a particular interest or expertise in one of our films’ topics and would like to introduce and lead a post-screening discussion, please let us know. We would love to have you do so!
Refreshments (red and white wine, water, snacks) are made available by the Film Club in the Theatre.
