East Meon Cinema for Village Hall

Recently released movies are screened in the Village Hall at 7.30pm on the last Friday of every month from September to April. The films are sourced by Moviola, which provides over 200 villages and towns in the UK with a selection of recent releases. Most popular are British movies, especially those which star senior actors such as Dames Judi Dench or Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson or Colin Firth. The King’s Speech, The Imitation Game and Best Exotic Marigold Hotel are among the films which have been screened to capacity audiences.

Thanks to a grant from the BFI, the Village Hall now has its own high quality projector and full-size screen, which allows us to screen more adventurous films, such as Kajaki, a much acclaimed but harrowing account of British soldiers defending a reservoir in Afghanistan, whose producer lives in East Meon. We also organized a ‘festival’ of Great War movies, and hope to arrange further specialist screenings.

The following is the list of upcoming film nights:

4th January 2019             Spitfire(PG)

25th January 2019          The Children Act(12)

22nd February 2019        King of Thieves(15)

29th March 2019              The Wife(15)

26th April 2019                A Star is Born(15)

Wine and ice creams are served on films evenings, and pre-cinema meals are available at both village pubs.
