Tansley Film shows films once per month, on the first Tuesday evening, from September to May, in our cinema in Tansley Village Hall in Church Street, Tansley near Matlock in Derbyshire. It is run by a team of volunteers, on a not-for-profit basis, for the community to enjoy.
At present we are applying a cautious approach for Covid-19 by having only 52 seats priced £5 in cash at the door giving 60% of our normal capacity of 85.
You can see our Cinema Operation for Covid-19 Safety policy here.
Booking seats is essential for everyone. Subsequent payment for each seat is £5 in cash when you arrive at the cinema..
Our cinema has comfortable, upholstered seats and is cosy, warm and friendly. We have high-definition projection on a 3.5 metre wide screen and rich surround sound. As we often sell-out, booking is essential to guarantee a seat. We allocate seats where you prefer, if available, for your comfort and convenience.
Our film programme comprises nine films. All the films are recent, usually on general release for under a year before we show them. The choice of films in our programme is normally guided by votes from the public on a shortlist that we provide. At present, owing to limited availability of films, we are chosing them ourselves.
Our films are classified by The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC). We publicise film classifications in our programme, on this web site and in other publicity material. While we welcome children, we restrict admission according to their age as stipulated by a film's classification of U, PG, 12A, 15 or 18. We will not admit a child under 8. If we are in doubt about any child's age we will refuse entry. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult (18 or over).
