A new community cinema has opened  in Shere with a sell out showing of Life of Pi.

Shere Village Cinema, based at the village hall, will be showing children’s and adult (adult as in not-children) movies once a month, with the aim of fostering community spirit, enabling people who find it difficult to get to either Dorking or Guildford to enjoy a night out at the cinema, giving young people a social hub in the village, and at the same time raising money for local charities.

Shere Village CinemaShere Village Cinema has been a year in the gestation but it is all set to become a pillar of local life. The equipment is high quality – the audience was hugely impressed with both sound and picture quality on Sunday, December 15 –  funded by local donations.

In addition to films, the team is also planning to show National Theatre productions and local historical films. As a not-for-profit enterprise, excess returns will be spread between local charities such as Lifetrain Trust.

Little touches like a red carpet, chrome rope pillars, bean bags for children and seat cushions and a popcorn machine transformed the village hall giving it a special cinema atmosphere.
