Village Cinema gets into Wimbledon mood this Tuesday 28th June

Tuesday 28th June at 7.00pm, please note the earlier time.

The next film screening in the Village Centre will be just the ticket for Wimbledon fortnight! King Richard (12) tells the amazing story of how tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams got their start, thanks to the vision and brazen plan of their father Richard Williams. A film not only for tennis fans but for anyone who loves a film about overcoming all the odds!

As a special Wimbledon fortnight event, there will be strawberries and cream and Pimms available to purchase. You can pre-order these when buying your ticket and enjoy them in the film’s interval.

To allow for a longer than usual strawberry eating interval, the film will commence at the earlier than normal time of 7.00pm. Tickets are available on the door, priced at £6 with under 16s £3. Entry includes a cup of tea, coffee or squash. In addition to Pimms, a licensed bar is available.
