Stockbridge Community Cinema

In 2015 Stockbridge Community Cinema was created under new management after our Stockbridge Town Hall venue was equipped with a projector (provided by the BFI Neighbourhood Equipment Fund) and a full range of audio visual equipment including a hearing induction loop. we show films twice a month all year round as follows:-

  • a monthly Wednesday Film Night  usually around the second to last Wednesday of the month with both a matinee and evening show
  • additional Film Night Extra events showing films with perhaps less wide-ranging appeal including foreign films, documentaries and occasional  'recorded live' events'.

The audience, made up of local people from Stockbridge and surrounding villages, averages around 70 with a current hall capacity of 75. Wine, soft drinks and ice cream are available for a very reasonable cost which makes the evening an enjoyable social event.

We have a growing email distribution list (over 600 addresses) and send an email notification of each month's upcoming films. We pay for the hire of the Town Hall and use of the equipment but any surplus made is donated to local community causes and, over the last 7 years, have donated over £25,000 to local organisations.

We participate in the Into Film Festival annually with free film shows for two local schools (Primary and Secondary). The main objective of this national film festival is to encourage young people to go to the cinema and build audiences for the future.

We are fully accessible with the following facilities:

  • lift to the upstairs hall
  • toilet for the disabled,
  • able to accommodate wheelchairs or those with special seating needs
  • baby changing facilities
  • hearing induction loop system

We have arranged meal deals with local restaurants in Stockbridge who offer discounts on showing a valid ticket for one of our films - visit our website for full details of these offers and any conditions that apply (www.stockbridgecinema.org.uk).
