Launch of the Cam & Dursley Community Cinema

Excitement is growing across the town for the launch event of Cam & Dursley’s  new Community Cinema.  Doors are set to open on Saturday 13 December for a double bill showing of “Disney’s Frozen” in the morning followed by an evening at “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”.

The cinema is based in Lister Hall at the Chantry Centre in Long Street, Dursley, where a top of the range HD projector has recently been installed.  It is run by a committed group of volunteers, keen to bring this wonderful resource to the area and ensure that it becomes a regular feature on the town’s social calendar.

Spokesman Adrian Judge said:

“The Chantry Centre has the potential to be an excellent community cinema providing films for all ages especially for those who find it difficult to travel.   Dursley used to have a cinema and it would be great to be able to have this again in the town.

We really hope that people will come along and support the launch.  The more interest we can generate, the more likelihood we will have of making this a regular event.”

Doors open for “Disney’s Frozen” at 10.30am, with £1 entry and children are encouraged to get dressed up and sing along too.  Please note, children under the age of 12 years must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 plus.

Doors open again at 7.00pm for  the evening showing of “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”, a wonderful feel good film to cheer a winter’s evening.  Tickets are £3 on the door and a bar and refreshments will be available.
