The Big Screen Comes To Broadwindsor

Broadwindsor Village Hall

9:22am 9th January 2015

People living in Broadwindsor can now get the big screen experience without even leaving their village.

Broadwindsor Comrades Hall is showing its first film tonight at 7.30pm (9th January) after being awarded a £6,000 grant by the Big Lottery Awards to buy cinema equipment.

The Hall's first film is Effie Gray and organisers hope that the new equipment will mean that they'll be able to keep costs down and put on a wide range of movies.

Hall vice-chairman Andrew Hookings said: "We can have much more varied range of films. We don't have to ensure we show popular films to get bums on seats."

But he also told Wessex FM that the screenings could have a wider impact on the area.

He said: "We can encourage the whole community to get involved, which should help the pricing of the films come down to an affordable level for everyone."

You can buy tickets for tonight's screening on the door.
