TANSLEY FILM Community Cinema


We show our films in the smart, cosy, warm main hall of Tansley Village Hall. We use the Hall's excellent, drop-down 3.5 metre wide white screen. It is mounted high giving a clear view from the back row as well as from all the others. We project in ultra-high-definition (4K) using a bright, high-contrast laser-powered digital projector driven from ultra-high-definition (4K/UHD) or high-definition Blu-ray disc, giving a clear, sharp picture. We have rich, powerful surround sound using large left and right front speakers, a sub-woofer to give full depth to the soundtrack and a top quality Klipsch Reference Premiere central speaker to make dialogue clear. Sometimes, owing to unclear speech by actors or non-English language, the dialogue can be difficult to follow. Although we do not normally show sub-titles on English speaking films, we may turn them on if speech is exceptionally unclear or needs translating.

We accommodate 80 customers. Seating is in rows using the Hall's ultra-comfortable, deeply-padded, upholstered seats with ergonomically sculptured back rests. You can see our seat layout here. All seats are bookable and booking is essential.

  Customers in wheelchairs have easy access to the cinema and have a toilet designed for their needs opposite the gangway between rows 4 and 6 on the right. If you use a wheelchair and wish to watch the film from it, please let us know when you book so that we can allocate space at the right-hand end of a row at the rear, to ensure your comfort and convenience.

We start the show at 7.30 pm with a short, on-screen preview presentation about the following month's film usually including a trailer. We then show the film you have paid to see, running it right through to the end without an interval (except for films over 2.5 hours long) so you can enjoy continuity. During the film, toilets are easy to get to as they are accessed directly from the main hall.

After a film, each member of the audience can drop a disposable emoticon () in a box at the door to tell us how much they liked the film they've just seen.
