Village Screen

Village Screen is a rural and community touring cinema providing quality film screenings in community venues throughout Norfolk & Suffolk. 

Volunteer promoting groups get together to screen the latest blockbuster or a timeless classic in the comfort of their local village hall or community centre.
Since 2005, Village Screen has become a vibrant and growing network of voluntary groups organising screenings for and with rural communities across Norfolk & Suffolk. Film events create opportunities for neighbours to meet, socialise and renew bonds. Less travel and lower cost makes this the obvious choice for many rural residents.
