Stirchley Open Cinema is run by local volunteers who believe film is a great way to bring people together and build community. Do you? Want to get involved?
We are not-for-profit. All ticket sales are used to cover event costs. A Birmingham City Council Local Innovation Fund grant has helped us to get started. We are currently seeking new volunteers to join our friendly team and help run the film events. Daytime and evening opportunities. Find out more here.
We’ve got a very varied programme over the next few months and we’re piloting three new cinema experiences too; a children’s short film programme and craft session on 30 May during the school holidays, a baby-friendly daytime cinema event on 17 June, and a dementia-friendly film screening in collaboration with Leaf Creative Arts coming up on 22 July.
There are still tickets for our next #FridayFeature - The Favourite (15) on 24 May, and we are now taking bookings for The Greatest Showman (PG) on 28 June.
The #MondayMatinee we piloted in April was so popular there will now be a monthly matinee screening, organised by the Selly Oak Constituency Neighbourhood Network Scheme.
We hope to see you at a film screening over the next couple of months!
We’re developing a ‘How to set up your own film events in Stirchley’ guide with a specific focus community cinema at Stirchley Baths, but useful anywhere! We’ll share these resources later in the year after our pilot events and doing the learning for you!
