We are delighted to advise that at considerable, but very worthwhile expense, we have just completed the installation of new professional Audio Visual equipment at the Cinema to improve your experience.
All the speakers have been changed, including amazing front dialogue speakers, and we can assure you that the sound quality from the new larger speakers and sub-woofer will blow your socks off! The AV receiver, amplifiers and control panel have been changed and are bespoke programmed to our requirements to make your experience at the cinema flawless!
Over the last year we have had a number of problems and gremlins, including those affecting sound quality. If you stopped attending because of the sound problems then PLEASE, come back. If you are not delighted with the quality of the sound, we will refund you!
We are entirely volunteer run, with all profits going to improvements at the Village Hall and Village Hall Cinema. Our first Village Hall was built as a memorial to those from the village who died in World War 1 and we are celebrating its centenary this year. Our current Hall is also 25 years old this year.
The income the cinema produces has been necessary for upgrading essential equipment and installing new items such as the solar panels. There is still much more to do. At some point in the future we will need to change the 4.5 meter screen and HD digital projector, but the Village Hall budget does not extend to the additional £6,000+ that this would incur at the moment. (Donations would be very gratefully accepted!)
So do remember that when you come to see a film, you are helping in the upkeep of a fabulous facility for the community for years to come.
Our next films are:
