Welcome to Driftwood Cinema

Serving Rural Communities our aim is to bring the Cinema to your village and provide community events centred around an evening of new or old film. Recreating the cinema experience we don’t just show one film, we add in local and historical short films relevant to your community, and to add to the fun we ask your community to contribute your own short clips, taken on your video camera or mobile phone, so your chance to see yourself on the big screen.
We are a Social Enterprise, so we reinvest our income to provide more and better services to the community that we serve. We keep our ticket prices for community events as low as possible so that everyone can get involved and get the chance to see big screen entertainment right on their doorstep. To keep the projectors on we hire out our indoor and outdoor equipment for private events, making a special occasion just that bit more special. Our mobile cinema equipment can be set up indoors or out (weather permitting), so why not spend a evening in the great outdoors, underneath the stars, watching an old classic or a new blockbuster.

 

Virtual Community Cinema

Hello everyone. Along with most events across the UK, community cinemas across the region are having to take the difficult decision to suspend screenings to ensure the safety of both audiences and volunteers.

We know that our audiences love to come together as a community to watch and discuss the films that our network of volunteers put on.

To encourage people to carry on talking about film and to connect with each other during a time of social isolation, Jo has suggested that we could all watch a film from the comfort of our homes and then get online or just phone a neighbour or friend and have a chat about it.

So each week we are going to nominate a film from either the BBC iPlayer or Channel 4 On Demand for you to watch. It would be great if you could watch it on Friday 20th Mar this week (but as it is on catch up you can watch it when convenient) and then we will open up the discussion from Saturday morning.

For details of our suggested films click on the Menu option Virtual Community Cinema

Please pass this along so that as many people as possible can participate in the great Virtual Community Cinema.
