Ruskin Community Cinema

Cinema - Walking the CaminoWe are community cinema in action at Carshalton Methodist Church. We show films you missed the first time round: cinema classics, musicals, dramas, and comedies.

Our large screen, powerful projector, surround sound and blackout blinds create an attractive cinema environment. We show most films with subtitles to assist people with hearing difficulties.

Our monthly programmes provide a community experience with coffee, tea, ice creams, popcorn and sweets on sale.

Admission is free, but donations are appreciated to help cover our licence fees, equipment, films and other expenses.

In normal times our film shows are in the Ruskin Hall at 3.00 pm and 7.30 pm unless otherwise stated, but for the time being, films are being shown in the church with one show only at 7.30 pm, and with a limited audience size.

We also occasionally visit homes for older people and clubs for people with dementia.

We are delighted to announce that we have restarted film shows following the break for the pandemic.

Audience size is being limited for the time being, and admission is by ticket only. The church building allows more space for social distancing, but there is one show only due to lack of blackout capability in the church.

Our next show is on Saturday 27 November at 7.30 pm (not 6 November as previously announced). For further details, and to make sure you hear about future shows as soon as they are announced, please sign up to our cinema mailing list, or contact the box office on 07306 068670.

Under the terms of our video licence we are not permitted to advertise our films publicly. For details about the films we show please sign up to our cinema mailing list. In normal times we send a newsletter about once a month, and a reminder shortly before each show. We use Mailchimp to operate our mailing list (the sign-up page opens a new browser tab).

You can also get details of our film shows by phoning the box office on 07306 068670.
