New laser projector

We have exciting news to announce - the Cinema will be returning in January with a new commercial laser projector! The stunning quality of the picture and vastly improved colour saturation is amazing compared to our old projector. We had been saving for a new projector for a number of years and were able to bring this forward partly thanks to a grant from National Lottery Awards For All together with reserves and donations over recent years including those from the Chiddingfold Village Fete and Chiddingfold Bonfire.

The AV system was replaced in 2019 and we hope to be able to replace the projection screen in the next few years.

Update - April 2023

The World Cinema season has ended in March, but we will continue to screen the best foreign language, arthouse and independent films amongst our normal schedule of screening on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month.

Most of the film distributors increased their license fees in line with inflation or above, which we have absorbed to date, but from April we are having to increase the ticket prices slightly to cover these increased costs.  The cinema still remains good value at £7 for adults and £4 for children under 15.  We also have a season ticket for £35 which provides free entry to 6 films (and has no expiry date).

Black Box Theatre Company return to the Village Hall on Friday 8th July 2022 with their tour of John Godbers hillarious play 'Bouncers'.

Set in 1984, John Godber’s classic comic drama, Bouncers, tells the story of a typical northern nightclub and the colourful characters that inhabit its dancefloor.  It’s Friday night and the weekend’s here… so, put on your dancing shoes… it’s going to be a night to remember!  Maureen and the girls are having their hair done. Barry and the lads are ‘down the pub’ getting a few drinks in. And Ralph, Les, Judd and Lucky Eric are manning the doors at the town’s hottest nightspot… Mr Cinders.
