This project was funded on 09 Apr 2018!

Screen25 is weekly community-led cinema in the heart of South Norwood. We offer a welcoming space for local people to come together and enjoy the latest independent and mainstream films, enhanced by Q&As, panel discussions, shorts and much more. For the past nine months we been dependent on a projector generously loaned to us by Hurst Village Cinema, who came to our rescue after we lost our previous venue in May 2017. This has enabled us to continue our work without too much disruption and has helped us to settle into our new home at Harris Academy. We would now like to return this projector to its rightful owner and purchase our own so that we can secure our future and continue building a sustainable and inclusive cultural hub for South Norwood.

What we'll deliver:

  • Buy a digital projector to allow us to continue showing films

Why it's a great idea:

Having access to a projector is critical in enabling us to carry out our activities as a community cinema. We believe that film is one of the world’s most accessible art forms and has the power to transform lives. As a Community Interest Company our ongoing mission is to: • Integrate our diverse community through an inclusive film programme catering for a wide demographic, including families, young people and BME groups; • Provide work experience and volunteering opportunities for local people; • Collaborate with local charities and businesses to support local enterprise and strengthen our social impact. Since we started life as a monthly film club in 2015 we have hosted over 100 screenings and welcomed around 4,000 people. We have a loyal membership base, with nearly 100 new members signing up in the past 12 months.

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchase digital projector

We are pleased to offer a number of rewards for people backing this project: Donate £10 or more: Your name included in a list of backers to be projected onto the screen before the film + a free Screen25 badge Donate £20 or more: Your name projected on the screen + Screen25 badge + Screen25 tote bag Donate £30 or more: Your name projected on the screen + Screen25 badge & tote bag + 2 free cinema tickes (to be redeemed within 2 months)
