About Us

Our Story

Wadhurst Community Cinema (WCC) launched in September 2013, to provide a facility for members of the community to have an affordable evening out together, enjoying good films on a big screen.

Since then hundreds of people have enjoyed monthly social evenings with mainstream films in the Commemoration Hall on Wadhurst High Street.

“The film quality is awesome”

We are a non-profit making organisation, run by volunteers, but if you think that means scratchy films and muffled sound, think again! We show high-quality Blu-ray films on state-of-the-art equipment purchased with the support of our Parish Council and paid for by our membership fees and local advertising. Our upgraded sound system is thanks to a Grant from the BFI Neighbourhood Cinema Equipment Fund.

All net proceeds are ploughed back into the upkeep of our venue, the Commemoration Hall, which is a Charitable Trust for the benefit of the people of Wadhurst. We are proud to say that, thanks to our members and advertisers, Seasons 1 – 6 produced £24,000+ for hall coffers.

Open to all the community

Our film nights are open to all comers. Costs work out at just £3.33 per film for members. Non-members can turn up on the night and pay £6 on the door.



Doors open at 7.00 pm, programme begins at 7.45 pm , no  interval.


Blu-ray films are shown on a big 5.5m screen with high-quality projection and sound as crisp as we can get it!


Including… popcorn, sweets and chocolate, plus tea, coffee, wine and soft drinks, available before and after the film.  Mulled wine and cider during the colder months is very popular!


Those familiar with our venue, the Commemoration Hall, know that the chairs can be a little rigid; if you think you will need additional padding, please bring a cushion with you to ensure you will be comfortable for up to two hours.

Happy Viewers
