Through your continued support you have made the Cockfield Cinema one of the regular successful fixtures in the village calendar. We appreciate fully that this will be a different experience from the cinema as we know it. We hope you will be sympathetic to the changes we are obliged to make and you’ll help us make it success no matter what the current situation throws at us.
We are mindful that our resumption plan may be put at risk by the on-going situation, and we’ll keep attendees fully informed of any developments that will impact the evening. Our goal is for us all to enjoy a safe and successful evening.
Doors open 7pm, 7.30 pm start.
