The cinema is run by a voluntary committee. (New members always welcome!) and a group of occasional volunteers who help at the screenings.
Our aim is to provide the opportunity for members of an isolated rural community to enjoy good films without having to make a round trip of 60 miles or more to the commercial cinema. The residents of Rothbury don’t even have to get in their cars!
In addition to the regular fortnightly films we plan to put on occasional special showings, such as for the local schools.
The equipment is also available to hire in the Jubilee Hall for an additional charge over and above the regular hall hire charge; we can be contacted here if you would like discuss the potential use of the cinema equipment. It is possible to connect the projector to a computer for presentations.
(Copyright restrictions apply to the showing of films)
We are not a profit making organisation. Any surplus funds will be contributed to the running costs of the Jubilee Hall.
We are grateful to the following organisations who contributed to the funding of the project:
Local Network Fund
Roland Cookson Fund
The Maudslay Family Fund
Newcastle Building Society Community Fund
Rothbury Parish Council
Thanks to their combined support with regular visitors the cinema can run on a regular basis.
