We are reopening towards the end of October.......

We can now announce that the David Lean Cinema will reopen on Tuesday 26 October. There will be film performances in the afternoon and evening of Tuesday and Thursday as well as alternate Saturday afternoons. The screenings on Tuesdays and those on Thursday afternoons will be subject to social distancing, with limited seats available, whereas those on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons will have all seats available. We will be familiarising our wonderful stewarding volunteers in the amended ways of working that this will entail over the coming weeks.

Unfortunately, we will have to delay the reintroduction of some aspects of the David Lean that you will have got used to. There will be no walk up box office before shows – tickets will need to be booked online and in advance of screenings. The Arts Bar will not be open (we hope to commence this in the New Year). Babes in Arms and Dementia Friendly screenings will not be part of our initial programming.

During this period up to Christmas, we plan to show three titles over a fortnight, all of which will be available in socially distant and ‘full’ screenings. The films will be a mixture of titles that have opened earlier in the year and the best of the latest releases – hopefully something for everyone. More details next week.

We plan to give more detailed information about how we will be organising screenings on this website and via our newsletters – subscribe here. In the meantime, if you have any concerns or queries, do let us know via our contact form (opens in new tab).
