Hawkchurch is a small place but it has the distinction of having been the first Moviola venue in Devon. Our village hall next to the church is very much a community centre, well used for a variety of clubs and events. The film club started in November 2002 with "Gosford Park" and it was immediately popular. People particularly enjoy the chance to catch up on local gossip during the break for refreshments. We moved to being associate members of Moviola in 2014 when it became clear that, with the small audience we have, it was difficult to pay for a projectionist. Two local people came forward to do this job and now we have no money worries. Our film friends are overwhelmingly local and many of them are retired, but a blockbuster film sometimes draws in surprising numbers from the surrounding area.
