Village Cinema

Before long the Village Cinema will be moving to its new home, in the Dersingham Village Centre. Films will be screened on the last Tuesday of each month and we’ll tell you when the move takes place. Meanwhile, there is a pressing need for a few more volunteers to help with the projection of the films. No lumping of great big reels these days, just pop in a DVD, but somebody still has to do it. See the poster here for all the details – at least you’ll get to see the films for free!
