Picture Palace

A season of films to be shown in the Village Hall on the last Sunday of each month from October until April

We are a “not-for-profit” group. The cost of each film screening is about £160.00, so we require a minimum attendance of at least 50. The bar, kitchen and franchising the food helps to subsidise our events as well as our Village Hall cafe held in the summer. Any excess funds we create will make its way to charitable organisations within the local community.

Refreshments are available including a cash bar and ice creams.  We often provide a supper in the hall (usually with a vegetarian option), prior to the showing, professionally cooked and supplied by ‘The Kings Arms’.

Please note our cancellation conditions, we require at least 48 hours notice if you are unable to attend and need to cancel your booking for supper, otherwise we will need to charge you for any food you have ordered except in unforeseen circumstances.

We are delighted to inform you that, after successful negotiations with them, we have obtained their licence and are able to show a British Pathé Newsreel at each session. Those of a certain age may well remember watching these newsreels at their local cinema in their youth.
