Many of you will know that Buxton Opera House have successfully launched their own cinema. They will be showing a range of films and we are pleased that there will be a broad choice to cater for all tastes in town. Their programme will also occasionally include films that we would probably have screened.
While we have been guaranteed continuation of our Monday evening slot in the Arts Centre, how the arrival of a new cinema in town will impact on us and our audience numbers remains to be seen. We are non profit-making but we still need an audience of around 45 people on average to break even – this is to cover venue rental, film licenses and other administrative costs.
For the immediate future, we remain committed to sourcing and screening a range of the best independent, national and international films. Our Jan – Feb programme is now published and we thank everyone for their support. If you would like to contribute ideas or suggestions for films or anything else do get in touch – we’re always keen to hear from you.
