Debenham Library - No Longer Showing Films

In 2017 we started Event Cinema in Debenham as part of Suffolk Libraries Presents which was a collaboration with Creative Arts East. Although that project ended, we continued to use the high quality portable equipment to show films, normally in the School Hall to an audience of up to 70. We didn't normally show recent cinema releases but tried to include films of local interest, arts, shows, exhibitions and cultural, as well as some shorts of historical or local interest, about six films a year. You can see a short film about our showing of Life on the Deben at We didn't have a bar but served ice creams, wine, soft drinks and tea/coffee.

We showed 16 films up to 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic hit and prevented further showings. Since then it has not been possible to resume showings, and they are unlikely to continue unless permanent equipment can be obtained.
