Are you passionate about film, or about doing something for the community?
Have you ever thought about running a cinema and wondered how to do it?
Do you have ideas about what else the Village Cinema could do?
We are a small friendly team who put our heart and soul into running the Village Cinema for the community of Hurstpierpoint and the surrounding areas. It is an incredibly rewarding thing to do, as well as a lot of fun. We have been recognised every year since we launched as one of the best Community Cinemas in the country.
We have increased what we do, from putting on one film a month when we launched, to three films a month and have introduced the Live broadcast of performances from the national Theatre. We have also screened Live broadcasts of stand alone concerts and done pop up film screenings at other venues.
We would love to expand what we do, but do not have enough spare time to give more.
For example, we would love to do introduce a film stream targeted at a teenage audience. But to make sure it worked, we would need some teenagers to get involved in running it, help to programme it and make sure the right films are chosen. It would be an excellent learning process for a group of young people; they would get the chance to learn about all aspects of running and marketing an enterprise like this.
Any other ideas welcome, it doesn't matter who you are, or how old, we would be interested in hearing from you.
If you would like to be involved, drop us a note!
