New website

We have just had our website redesigned and hope this will make it easier for people to find out information about forthcoming screenings and to buy tickets.

Watch ASPIRE 2 here!

ASPIRE 2 is a short film which was conceived, written and scripted by pupils at Sawston Village College, working in partnership with professional film-maker, Simon Panrucker.  The result is an exceptional film of which everyone is rightly proud. The school is grateful to South Cambridgeshire Decorative and Fine Arts Society for supporting this project.   

Ticket Prices

We’ve tried to keep our ticket prices as low as possible but in order to try to cover film licencing costs we have had to introduce a small increase this season. All Sawston Cinema screenings will now cost £4.00 (Concessions £3.00). Please note that different prices apply to NT Live screenings.


The summer workshops have been a great success. We’ve had three days of excellent film-making. Check out the WORKSHOP FILMS page to see what was made. We’ve got two films up from the Movie Match workshop already.

Summer Film-making – the results are online!

We had a great day in July on the ‘Make Me a Movie Monster’ workshop and two great films were made as a result. To see these films, go to WORKSHOP FILMS and look for ‘The Monster Hunter’ and ‘The Story of Earth’. Then sit back and enjoy!
