Local Community Cinema

We have heard from a team who are currently running a community based, non-profit cinema club based in the Allendale Centre in Wimborne.

They are focusing initially on film noir classics from the 1940s and 50s and are really keen on bringing some classic Hollywood magic back to a big screen for the local community!
