Queuing up the road, a full house, amazing costumes, not to mention the wonderful singing – the launch of Cam & Dursley’s Community Cinema this December was a great success.
The cinema was launched with the showing of Disney’s Frozen on Saturday morning 13 December and organisers were absolutely delighted by the show of support from the local community with every seat being sold. Many of the children came dressed up in costumes and got to enjoy some live entertainment too before the screening with singing and dancing lead by ‘Christmas Angels’ Helen Gee and Anita Bassington.
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 . Spokesman Adrian Judge said:
“We want to say a big ‘thank you’ to the community for coming out in force to support this new venture, together with our tremendous team of volunteers who have made this all happen.
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. We really want to see this project develop and thrive in the new year, creating a fabulous resource at the Chantry Centre for the whole community to benefit from.”
Organisers stress now that the future of the Community Cinema very much rests in the Community’s hands. They would love to receive feedback from people who attended the opening screenings or who would be interested in attending in the future. They would also welcome new volunteers to join their team and help build on the potential of the opening day and take the Community Cinema forward.
