BCC’s film selection policy

Licences to show films are controlled by Distributors, so film societies and community cinemas aren’t able to get films when they are first on general release.

When a newly released film appears to be popular, we will include it on our programme - but a major advantage to BCC is that we have is access to huge film libraries.

As BCC exists to serve the local community, we encourage film suggestions - but if a sufficient number of suggestions is not forthcoming it will be left to the Committee to compile the film programme. This will be based on film reviews and feedback from other societies about well-received films, etc.

Please let us have your film suggestions - whatever they are.  The best place is the Film Suggestions Forum -or call the message line (0845 8740168)

Sponsor a film night.

Could you help your community cinema’s fund-raising by sponsoring a film night? It costs just £60 to have your name on Posters, Flyers, and this web site, plus some complimentary tickets.  A great way for businesses to extend a bit of hospitality and it’s cheaper than an advert in the local!  Please e-mail if interested.

A great British comedy. If you enjoyed Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, you’ll enjoy this.

Rumours are circulating in Beecham House - a home for retired musicians: a new resident may be arriving.

For Reggie (Tom Courtenay), Wilfred (Billy Connolly) and Cecily (Pauline Collins) gossip of this sort is normal - but they're in for a shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their former singing partner, Jean Horton (Maggie Smith).

Her subsequent career as a star soloist, and the ego that accompanied it, split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie, who takes the news of her arrival particularly hard.

Can time heal old wounds? Will the famous quartet be able to resolve their differences in time for Beecham House's gala concert?

Important Notice

A Special General Meeting took place on 6th September 2013 and voted in favour of a proposal to wind up BCC.

The last film shown was Quartet - not just an enjoyable film but a tribute to the four remaining committee members who kept BCC going in recent months.
