CROWCOMBE CINEMA – Your Community Cinema

Seeing a film at Crowcombe Cinema is so much more than just going to the cinema; our shows are social occasions, with people meeting in the bar beforehand and chatting over ice creams in the interval. 

We show two films a month, one mainstream and one Arthouse or Independent film. We’ll start with a trailer of the next film and a short film chosen by Moviola. We then have a short interval, allowing time to get an ice cream before the main film.

Crowcombe Cinema is the community cinema for the village of Crowcombe, We have been showing films in The Crowcombe Hall since 2006. We have a high-quality digital projector, very good surround sound system and a good size screen. 

As with many other community cinemas, we operate as an Associate of Moviola (www.moviola.org), a community cinema provider, based in Dorset but with Associates all over the UK. Moviola is one of the largest rural film schemes in Europe and can get access to films before they are available to the general public.

Crowcombe Cinema is run by Philip Comer under the supervision of the Crowcombe Hall Management Committee. We have a panel of projectionists who take it in turns to manage the screening at each of our shows. 

We generally show two films a month, one on a Sunday (normally the 2nd Sunday in the month) and one on a Friday (normally the 4th Friday). The Sunday show is normally mainstream films and Friday nights showing more Arthouse and Independent films that are unlikely to make the main cinemas. At each screening we show a trailer of the next film and a short film chosen by Moviola. We then have a short interval, allowing time to get an ice cream before the main film.

Moviola provides a “menu” of about 30 films for each of three seasons every year from which we select the films we show. The films we show are chosen by a selection panel, made up of our volunteer projectionists, representatives of the Hall Management Committee and members of our audience.

Our main communication with our audience is through email. If you would like to be on our email list and get regular updates about our programme, please email Philip Comer at crowcombecinema@gmail.com

Shows start at 7:30 pm, with doors open at 7:00pm. Come early and enjoy a glass of wine or beer, and don’t forget the delicious Styles ice creams in the interval.

Tickets are £6 bought on the door. It is not necessary to book in advance, although we have been quite full on some popular shows, and it does help us know how many to expect. To reserve tickets email us: crowcombecinema@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our film nights.
