The Saturday Cinema shows family films once a month on Saturday afternoons. The films are normally screened on the last Saturday of the month, but this may vary depending on the availability of the theatre.
Doors open at 2.30 and the film starts at 3.00
There is no membership for the Saturday Cinema, but we do require any children under the age of 8 to be accompanied by an adult. Children over the age of 8 can be left alone at screenings, but parents should be aware that we are not providing any official childcare.
We do take precautions to ensure that these screenings are held in as safe an environment as possible, including having a member of the team present to monitor the auditorium at all times and help any children that need it and we ensure that no-one over the age of 18 is allowed in unless accompanying a child.
If you do leave your child at the theatre, please ensure you are there in good time to pick them up at the end of the film. We can tell you the time that the film finishes.
All tickets for the Saturday Cinema cost £4.00.
Coffee and cakes are on sale to Mums and Dads, and a range of sweets and soft drinks are on sale for the children.
The Saturday Cinema operates during out Autumn and Winter seasons only, as we have found that audience numbers decline in Spring.
In 2015 we started screening Live Broadcasts as a joint venture with Hurst Players.
Having surveyed the residents of the village, we initially launched with NT Live, showing live performances, as they happen on stage at the National Theatre or in the West End.
These broadcasts have proved highly popular and we are always reviewing what is available. With members tickets at only £10 that represents a 50% saving on most cinemas.
All screenings take place at the Players Theatre on Hurstpierpoint High Street, by arrangement with the Hurstpierpoint Players.
The Players Theatre is an 80+ seater venue, with full raked seating and has the benefit of its own licenced bar.
For more information on the theatre or to enquire about the potential hire of the venue, contact the Players directly.
