Visit to Little Savoy Community Cinema

On this visit we learnt of the dedication of Andrew Reed and his small team of like-minded people who practically single-handedly created a community cinema in an old World War 1 Nissen hut in Colne. Working to a small budget they turned unwanted household objects into something they could use to further the atmosphere and character of the old cinemas we fondly remember. They named their film club after the Savoy Cinema, which was situated in Colne`s main street. This sparked even more reminiscing of Saturday morning children’s film clubs of the fifties. After refreshments, we were shown an Alfred Hitchcock black and white movie, which rounded off a most enjoyable evening. A donation of £100 was made. Their website gives details of forthcoming events:
