Supporting Local Charities

The Shere Village Cinema committee is proud to announce that we raised over £2,500 in 2016 in surplus funds thanks to the continued loyalty and generosity of our audience throughout the year. We are delighted to be able to donate to five local charities, each of which expressed their enormous gratitude as the donations will make a huge difference to their cause.

£1,000 was donated to a special little boy, Leo Barnett. His parents, Melody and Pete, have been running a home-based Child Led Therapy Called the Son-Rise Program through the Autism Treatment Centre of America®. Since starting the programme, Leo has made amazing progress and is now making eye contact and requests cuddles. Our donation will contribute towards taking Leo to America in May 2017 for the Intensive Programme and we wish Leo and his wonderful family a happy and successful trip.

We also donated £500 to Cranleigh’s Riding for the Disabled as part of their fundraising initiative to build a new main barn that houses their stables and social area. A cheque for £500 was also presented to Ride for A Reason, run by Alison Oakden of Chilworth, which helps children with learning and minor disabilities. Our donation will help towards their running costs especially hay and feed. 

Furthermore, £250 was donated to the 9th Shere and Peaslake Scout Group, and £250 to the Shere, Peaslake and Holmbury St Mary Guides Unit. These donations will help provide essential equipment for the Scouts and Guides as well as help towards the upgrade of the Scout Hut in Peaslake.

A massive thank you to our entire cinema community – your support is hugely appreciated and we look forward to seeing you at a film night very soon.

Christmas at Shere Village Cinema

We've got a lot coming up at Shere Village Cinema and don't want you to miss out on any of it so read on and have your diary handy.

December 18th at 8.30pm - Four Christmases 

A feel-good romp of a movie with the delightful Reese Witherspoon and ever-droll Vince Vaughn struggling to make sense of Christmas with their respective odd-ball families. Funny, romantic, lightweight it's a seasonal silly set to entertain.

Please note this performance will start at the slightly later time of 8.30.

 

December 29th at 2pm - Zootropolis

A fabulous family film that we really hope will bring in all ages. It has been nominated for several major film awards in 2017 including the Golden Globe Award for the Best Animated Feature Film. 

Refreshments will include popcorn and squash or please feel free to bring your own. A squishy bean bag or comfy seat await depending on your inclination.

 

December 29th at 7.30pm - Top Hat

Then, on the same evening, we  have our Christmas Celebration from 7.30. Top Hat is the classic movie on offer and yes the rumours are true there will be dancing! We are very fortunate to have found a tap teacher to come along and demonstrate some steps and teach us all a few Fred and Ginger moves.

Fancy Dress is optional but if you have a hat and cane why not bring them? Tickets for this event will include an array of canapes and snacks and soft drinks so save some room to enjoy what promises to be a very special evening. Tickets for this event need to be booked in advance by the 16th of December or thereafter by arrangement with a committee member.

 

Thanks for reading and a very Happy Christmas from all of us on the team!
