The Reel McCoy film Group

The Reel McCoy has been screening films in Canberra since 1990.

The Reel McCoy Film Group screens twice a month on the second Sunday and the last Sunday of the month. Screenings start at 1pm.

Screenings are held at the Canberra Museum and Gallery (CMAG) on the Cnr London Circuit and City Square, Canberra City.

The Reel McCoy shows a mixture of Hollywood Classics, Arthouse and Foreign Films.

Every film is introduced by a member of the Reel McCoy in order to help the audience understand and appreciate the film a little more and every screening is followed by discussion afterwards, giving you a chance to talk about the film over tea, coffee and biscuits. We hope to see you there.

Memberships are available for three months, six month or 1 year.
