About this website
The idea of this website is to connect community cinema projects together and people and more importantly is to advertise their existence to the public and the film community. Also allowing the public to be able to see different community projects and cinemas and giving the public a chance to visit not only their local community cinema but also cinemas further afield.
I have been involved in some fantastic uk community cinema projects. They are places where not only will you have a fantastic time but you can also help your local community and local businesses. Some of the community cinemas I have been involved with sell locally sourced food and drink at cheaper prices than the commercial cinemas. Many community cinemas also have a licence to sell alcohol. They also have themed night where everyone dresses up as characters from the film being shown. Another good idea is you will usually get an interval where you can recharge your glasses.
