A venture started in 2019 under the life-long learning auspice.
We have invested in suitable equipment to be able to project films to an audience of up to 80 people in the comfortable traditional environment of a rural cinema. During Covid restrictions the maximum has been 40.
Membership entitles the owner to a programme of six monthly screenings over the winter starting in October, the emphasis being on classic films with an aesthetic and cultural resonance.
Each screening will be preceded by a 5 minute talk explaining some of the context and background of the film's production and encouraging the audience to develop a critical awareness of this vibrant art form.
Short films may be added to the programme during the season. There will be opportunity for a short debate after the screening for those wanting to take part.
Membership includes a tea/coffee at the beginning of the evening.
Entrance is strictly by membership card £25 paid for at the start of the season (due to film licensing we cannot sell tickets at the door) but members can bring in one guest each per screening at a cost of £5 (as long as there are seats free).
Card payments can now be made on entry.
For a membership form please email Adrian Holden.
