We are very pleased to announce that the Cockfield Cinema will resume on Friday September 25th with a screening of Military Wives (see below for further information about the film). Doors open at 7 pm, for a 7.30 pm start.

Through your continued support you have made the Cockfield Cinema one of the regular successful fixtures in the village calendar.  So we are asking for your support once more as we take our first steps towards a new normal, learning and adapting as we go.  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.

These are the main changes that will be implemented for the resumption:

Military Wives

The story celebrates a band of misfit women who form a choir on a military base. As unexpected bonds of friendship flourish, music and laughter transform their lives, helping each other to overcome their fears for loved ones in combat.
