FILMS FOR SPRING 2020
Dear friends and customers supporting the Village Cinema.
At the time of increasing concerns about the developing Coronavirus, the committee for WLVC has met to discuss the implications of this and the monthly screenings at the Village Hall. Firstly we would like to emphasise how much we enjoy providing a cinema facility to the local community and also to our commitment to continue to do so. We have built up a loyal audience and this is important to us.
We would like to reassure you that we are following the advice issued by Public Health England with specific regard to public events and as the situation develops we will endeavour to implement their recommendations.
We are anxious to ensure that anyone who has a weakened immune system making them more vulnerable to infection, does not put themselves at possible additional risk by attending a screening.
In addition we would like to remind you that it is imperative that anyone with a cough or fever or any type of respiratory infection should also not attend the cinema.
We will, in the meantime, make small changes to the seating arrangements in the hall for screenings , provide wrapped sweets and dispose of rubbish promptly.
We aim to update you on any changes to this situation and film screenings on this website as soon as possible.
Please check the website before you come to a screening as Public Health England are updating their guidance regularly.
Films start at 7.30pm. Tickets on the door £5 including luxury ice cream.
