Foxlowe Films

  • Description

    Foxlowe Films is based in Foxlowe Arts Centre and is a volunteer run community cinema bringing quality specialist and British films to audiences across Leek and the Staffordshire Moorlands.

    We bring art films of various genres to our local area where access to cinema is a real issue. A pilot in 2012 clearly demonstrated a strong desire for a community cinema given that the nearest cinema of any type is circa 15 miles away in all directions.

    We run three seasons a year with regular screenings on Tuesday evenings at 7.45pm.
