CROWCOMBE CINEMA – Your Community Cinema

Crowcombe Cinema has started up again with a reduced programme of one film a month from May through to August 2021. We are currently operating with Covid measures in place. These are designed to ensure everyone’s safety without spoiling your enjoyment of the film.  The measures include a limited capacity (40), masks on when moving about (but not when seated), no Interval (to limit movement). 

We still have a bar and ice creams for sale before the show. We hope to be able to relax some of the measures after the July show, but we will follow Government Guidance. 

Shows start at 7:30 pm, with doors open at 7:00pm.

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:

Friday 11th June - Love Sarah

As gentle and soft as romances come, coupled with Britain’s love-in for home baking, this is surely a recipe for success? Celia Imrie takes up the central role of a grandmother who knows a thing or two about a tart(!) as she guides her granddaughter through her trials and tribulations of opening a bakery.

12A: 1 hr 37 mins; COMEDY, DRAMA, ROMANCE


Sunday 18th July - Little Women

Directed by Oscar nominee, Greta Gerwig, this timeless adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel doesn’t tamper with its source material too much. Traversing time periods in non-chronological order, the film mostly follows Jo March and her headstrong determination to be valued and seen by her contemporaries, as well as being understood by her family.

U; 2 hr 15 mins; DRAMA, ROMANCE


Friday 13th July - Summerland

During World War II, reclusive writer Alice has her sequestered life upended when Frank, an evacuee from the London Blitz, is left in her care. Despite initially resolving to be rid of him, Alice finds herself and her emotions reawakened by him. Summerland provides a warmth of tone amidst the wartime background, with some knock-out performances by its ensemble cast, unearthing yet another surprising tale from WWII.

12A; 2 hr 16 mins; DRAMA, ROMANCE, WAR


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 (, 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

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