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!

Village Cinema helps our fundraising

Any profits from the Dersingham Village Cinema go towards our fund to help build and equip the new Village Centre. Films are shown in the Dersingham Social Club on the last Tuesday in the month.poster for village cinema film Churchill

Our next presentation is one of two films about the great Winston Churchill that are doing the rounds at the moment. Churchill stars Brian Cox as the great man, ably assisted by Miranda Richardson as his wife. Once again the focus is on the dark days of World War II and upon Churchill’s weighty words that galvanise the nation into action.

The Social Club is in Lynn Road almost opposite the Coop supermarket. Doors open at 6.45 and screenings begin at 7.30. The £5 admission includes free tea or coffee and there is also a licensed bar. The date is Tuesday 30th January – don’t miss a good film and the chance to support our fundraising!

Upcoming Fundraisers

We’re still raising money, so that we can equip the new Village Centre with all the goodies that a new hall needs. Just to update everyone, our lottery grant and other finances are in place, although there are a few i’s to be dotted and t’s to be crossed before we can actually start building. At the moment we hope to begin construction in October, but we’ll give a more accurate start date as soon as we can.

Meanwhile, please keep supporting our Village Centre Lottery and other fundraising events. The village cinema has moved to the Dersingham Social Club until the new hall is ready, and you can see details of the next couple of films from the posters here. A little later in the year we are holding a Ceilidh and Barn Dance on 4th November. All the profits from the cinema and the dance will go to Village Centre funds, so put the dates in your diary now. Thanks!

Our Next Events

Our quiz night on the 3rd January was a great success, with over £500 being raised towards the cost of our new Village Centre. We’ve already raised around £5000 in the last few months, but we need more, as we aim to start building in the coming Summer. Please help us and support our fundraising events, there’ll be more of them coming up soon. Meanwhile, if you would like to help in other ways, by joining the Village Centre Lottery, or buying bricks or roof tiles for the new building, you can find all the necessary information on our Fundraising page on the main website. Thanks!

Looking a little further ahead, you’ll find the posters for both our January and February Village Cinema Screenings below. Don’t miss them.
