Cinema for All - what a great strapline to capture the aspiration of the Community Cinema movement. Where commercial cinemas may not be viable, why not have a community cinema? Community may not sound as exciting as commercial, time will tell, but it is our hope that we can be more flexible and adventurous as income generation is not necessarily the most important reason to keep the cinema going.
It will be down to the participants of the community cinema to decide how exciting and adventurous it will be and it is our hope that this is what the people who come to the cinema will prove to be! Films are about imagination and creativity to translate life into insightful and fulfilling experiences. Lets bring some of that to the way the community cinema operates and the programmes it develops over the next few years.
We look forward to an exciting and varied first year and that together we can look back and say "that was great, lets do it again".
