Octagon Films is a non-exclusive cinema club and anyone may apply for membership. [link http://www.leicestershirevillages.com/marketharborough/earlier-film-programmes.html]Forty or more films are shown each year in Market Harborough[/link], at the Harborough Theatre. This venue has over 100 tiered seats in an air conditioned auditorium. We use digital equipment to show a wide range of films on a large screen and with surround sound. We screen a mix of films – the latest movies, much loved classics together with lesser known films.

We operate as a club because it allows us to communicate easily with our audience which is you! Instead of advertising in local newspapers etc, we send all our members film programmes which give a full description of each film that we will be showing. Furthermore, the environment created is warm, friendly and safe! We know who our members are!
National Theatre and The Bolshoi Ballet
Live HD screenings from London and Moscow
We are delighted to announce that Octagon Films is now able to bring world-class theatre to Market Harborough transmitted live via satellite from The National Theatre on the South Bank of the River Thames in London.
NT Live is a groundbreaking initiative to broadcast the best of British theatre in high definition on the big screen. Now, you need travel no further than Harborough Theatre to see an eclectic mix of new plays and classics, with seven or eight productions in a season. The National Theatre aims constantly to expand the horizons of audiences and artists alike and NT Live enables it to share its work with a much wider audiences both in the UK and abroad than would be otherwise possible. Broadcasts will also feature behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with artists.
Another exciting development has been live screening of world class ballet from The Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow and now Glyndebourne
