Spring Season 2020
Enjoy a Friday film, a drink and and ice cream
at TMH cinema nights, Thorverton Memorial Hall
Cinema in your village hall
During 2018/2019 a small team worked to secure funding to improve the audio-visual facilities in the Memorial Hall. We were successful in
our bid and we now have the equipment installed in the hall which
enables us to develop our cinema project in Thorverton.
Under the umbrella of the Memorial Hall Committee we are able to show films of various genres, both older and recent releases.
We aim to present an entertaining and enjoyable range of films each season suitable for individual and family audiences.
We anticipate that films will be regularly shown during a ten month season, leaving the opportunity to run possible special film events
in the other two months as the project develops.
All films will be screened in the Memorial Hall where
ice creams, soft drinks, tea and coffee are available to purchase
and the a bar is open before and after the film showing.
Join us throughout the year for some excellent films and
help make the TMH cinema events a real success.
You will be welcome.
