A new monthly film night is set to be launched at Fincham Memorial Hall, and the first screening is FREE of charge, thanks to a generous arts grant provided by the National Lottery to establish Fincham Film For All.
The grant enabled the purchase and installation of specialist cinema equipment which includes a 4-metre wide screen, a digital projector, surround sound speakers and a hearing induction loop, as well as 64 comfortable padded chairs.
The Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Small Grants Scheme through Norfolk Community Foundation also contributed towards a third of the equipment costs and the Norfolk-based The Big Screen Co supplied and installed the new kit.
The first screening will be taking place on Saturday 30th July when Operation Mincemeat, starring Colin Firth, will be shown for free. It will be a great opportunity for villagers to see the equipment in action for the first time, and for the village hall committee to gather feedback on their experience as well as their preferences for future films.
A licensed bar will be available, and fresh popcorn will be on sale for £1 a bag courtesy of a very generous donation of a popcorn machine from a local donor who prefers to remain anonymous (for which we are very grateful – thank you again).
Fincham Film For All aims to bring together local residents of all ages, to enjoy a local low-cost evening of entertainment which we hope will have widespread appeal throughout the village.
Please join us if you can.
No pre-booking is required, simply arrive from 7 pm on Saturday 30th July to grab a FREE seat at our new cinema. First come first served.
