The cinema closed from 30 June 2006 for the new sponsored retractable seating, with a grand re-opening on 20 July with a special screening of ‘The Smallest Show on Earth’. Michael Relph, the producer, had visited our cinema twice in 1993 and 94 including this film and a day course on Ealing Studios. The following year 2007, saw the installation of new heating and ventilation as well as the state of the art DTS Digital Sound from a BFI grant. – Roger Gibson.

Peter Sellers, Margaret Rutherford, Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers star in Basil Dearden's heart-warming comedy. This gently whimsical elegy to the Golden Age of cinema co-stars Bernard Miles, Leslie Phillips and Sid James and is presented here as a brand-new High Definition remaster from the original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.

Overjoyed to learn that they've inherited a cinema in the north of England, Matt and Jean Spenser are subsequently shattered to find it's less of a grand picture palace and more of a fleapit (with three equally decrepit employees). Can the couple make a go of it or will they be forced to sell up and watch the Bijou Kinema be redeveloped into a car park? An absolute gem!

Tickets Only £2.00
