Cinema Listings

We have been presenting films at the Village Hall since September 2016 and in 2017 BLF funded a high-quality 7-speaker, audio-visual system and an installed 3.5m screen. There are no membership requirements and we invite people from Ravensthorpe and surrounding villages to enjoy our varied screenings. Capacity is in excess of 70, but we often fill the room and therefore advise booking tickets in advance.

There are two or more screenings a month from September to June – one mainstream film, one ‘cinephile’ screening and occasional classics. You will find details of how to book – along with a link – on each film page.

Mainstream

We choose the best of the best across diverse genres – typically these showings will be very well received recent films that people may have missed or smash hit older films that people would enjoy seeing again on ‘the big screen’.

Cinephile

These showings are typically foreign language films, documentaries or are of particular cinematographic merit. Often attended by a more committed cinema-goer and film lover, we would recommend you come along as we promise diverse ideas, styles and perspectives with insights into different cultures or ways of life.

Classics

Who doesn’t love a classic? We occasionally arrange classic film matinees. Whether you like black and whites, musicals or a good old fashioned western, join us one afternoon.
