A message from our cinema director, Rebecca Marshall:
As we have been unable to operate at our previous full capacity since reopening, and with safety measures unlikely to be able to relax anytime this year, we are facing mounting building rental costs, film licensing costs and other overheads that were previously viable when we were open at full capacity.
Unless all our current season of films sell out, the cinema will be unable to continue into 2021 and will likely close in December this year.
With this in mind I make this plea to all to help sustain this much-loved community asset:
