Update - October 2022

We are planning to reopen the Film Theatre as soon as this is agreed with the University.

As you know, the Film Theatre was closed in 2020 due to coronavirus and it has been closed ever since due to circumstances outside our control.

While we had to make our part-time staff redundant in 2020, our core team of voluntary staff – director, programmer, treasurer, company secretary, technical engineer - have remained in place and the governors and trustees have met regularly throughout. 

We will continue to depend on the commitment of our projectionists, Front of House volunteers and our valued audiences, without whom we would not function, and will be relying on them to support the Film Theatre as they have so loyally in the past.  

The Film Theatre organisation continues to be viable and as soon as we have the go ahead from the University we will be installing new projection equipment.

We hope that we can continue to rely on your support and will inform you once the arrangements for reopening have been finalised.
