Back in mid-March, due to Covid-19 government restrictions on indoor activities, we had to halt our screenings programme at the Village Picture House in Cuddington.
A lot of work has been done to make the cinema experience as safe as it can be by complying with Government guidelines for village halls and community centres, and we had planned to re-open the cinema on October 8th, with a socially distanced audience of twenty six, plus other safety measures in place.
However ... with the recent introduction of the "Rule of Six" for households, and further restrictions being announced to try to halt the spread of the virus, we have put our decision on hold, as we felt it was now inappropriate to re-open the cinema. The safety of our audience and volunteers is first and foremost in our minds.
We are fortunate to live in a relatively safe part of the UK, and we hope it won't be too long before the restrictions are eased, so we can once again open the doors to the Village Picture House.
Keep an eye on Haddenham.net for further announcements. Stay safe.
