2020/21 Season



  Highworth Community Cinema will be re-opening on Friday 24th September.
For residents who don't know about us we are an independent voluntary organisation run by Highworth residents since 2006, which aims to bring world-class films to Highworth. Two of our long-standing committee members have sadly had to resign in the past year and we are seeking new committee members to help with choosing the films and helping out on film nights. The level of commitment includes helping out on film nights for the seven films we show each season, and meeting up once or twice – the majority of communication is via email. If you are interested please contact us by phone or email.

The first film of the season will be 'Fisherman's Friends' which was due to be shown in April 2020.
  We remain hopeful that we can open up again in September 2021 for the next season.

  We trust you will understand the reasons for this decision and thank you for your continued support.





Fishermans Friends

Friday 24th September

Fishermans Friends

Fisherman’s Friends is an amiable and upbeat British comedy with a flavour of Ealing Studios and The Full Monty about it. A cynical London music executive reluctantly heads to Cornwall on a colleague’s stag weekend where he’s pranked into trying to sign a group of shanty-singing fishermen. Ten fisherman are signed by Universal Records and achieve a top ten hit with their debut album.

In Safe Hands

Friday 22nd October

In Safe Hands

Jeanne Herry crafts a story stemming from a delicate two-and-a-half-month state of limbo for a newborn child, Théo, who becomes a ward of the state after his mother gives him up for adoption at birth. In Safe Hands choreographs parallel strands of action: the search for potential parents undertaken by the social workers managing Théo's case, the care and vigilance required for Théo's foster father to properly nurture him in the interim, and the nine-year journey of adoption applications and fractured marriage embarked upon by a possible mother.

Our Previous Films

The overall rating for each film is calculated by applying the following weightings to the audience's responses: Excellent - 1; Very Good - 0.75; Good - 0.5; Poor - 0.25; and Awful - 0. The sum of the weighted scores is then expressed as a percentage of the total number of responses.
