Screenings 2010 - 2011 Season

Since leaving our base in Okehampton and becoming a trully peripatetic cinema we no longer have control of the programme or schedule except as advisors. Many of the village halls do not schedule very far in advance and often wait to find out which films their audience wants before making a final decision. All of which means we can no longer publish a season of film screenings. Individual village halls will publish screening times as they set them. A list of our regular venues can be found in the old season schedule below.

As before, most screenings begin at 7.00 - but do check with the venue to which there will be a link on the listing.

SCREENINGS 2009 - 2010 Season.

Most evening screenings begin at 7.00 pm but please confirm with the venue.
