“We’re all going on a Summer Holiday…”

Alas, this is our last screening for Season 6, we’re shutting down for the Summer, but stay tuned for a FREE invite to a special event over the Summer months. We need your help to test out some new ideas we have for the Cinema’s audio systems, and as a bribe we’ll be running a free screening of a “secret” film to all those who participate.

Details of this event, (and the other bits of tomfoolery we generally get up to over the Summer months) will be communicated in the usual fashion, by email, Facebook and on the website.

Hope to see you at some of these, but if not, have a glorious Summer…and we’ll see you again in September for season 7.
