Community Cinema

The Community Cinema at Gavinton is now in its fifth year and has gained a reputation for the quality of its permanent and professionally installed full HD projection system, which ensures a great cinematic experience, housed within the very comfortable Gavinton Village Hall!

The idea of Community Cinema Gavinton is to bring cinema into an area which is predominantly rural. It is run by a group of Volunteers who believe in providing the full cinema experience to the people of Gavinton and surrounding villages without the expense and inconvenience of travelling elsewhere.

Our aim is to screen a broad range of films from U rated to 18 rated, incorporating children’s films, family films, animations, classic, world cinema and serious dramas. We try to provide something each season for everyone and are always prepared to listen to your ideas and suggestions. The films usually result in discussion of some kind afterwards, which we like to encourage. To this end, tables are set up with a selection of nibbles, and audiences are invited to bring their own bottle, making it more of a social occasion. (There is ice-cream and some soft drinks available).

Screenings are scheduled, in the main, on the first Saturday, second Sunday (Matinee ) and third Thursday of the month and subscribers receive advance notice of these in a Newsletter.
