*** At present we are applying a cautious approach for Covid-19 by having fewer seats priced £5 in cash at the door giving 56% of our normal capacity. ***
Tansley Film normally 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.
Booking seats is essential for everyone. Subsequent payment for each seat is either £4 in cash when you arrive at the cinema or you can pay £20 for our FreeChoice discount card to see any seven films from the current programme. Booking is still needed to guarantee you a seat.
Our cinema has up to 85 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 (whether you pay at the door or have a FreeChoice card). 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 eight of our films is guided by votes from the public on a shortlist that we provide. We choose the ninth, our mystery film, later in the season. This is often a film that has come to attention through BAFTA and OSCAR nominations.
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).
