So what has happened to Splendid Cinema? Well, during the recent changes at the Worcester Arts Workshop, Splendid Cinema was put into limbo. In particular, we needed to find new equipment in order to show films.
The BFI & Saville AV are sponsoring a Community Cinema competition. Prize includes “a 4000 Lumen Projector, Projection Screen, Full HD Smart Blu-ray player, Amplifier, Speakers with stands and a Magic Movie Mobile to keep everything safe in!” Winning this competition would mean Worcester has a permanent independent cinema at the Worcester Arts Workshop! Details of the competition can be found here:
As part of our application to the competition, we are running a petition to Saville AV demonstrating the community support for Splendid Cinema. If you want to see Splendid Cinema return to the Worcester Arts Workshop, if you want to see independent cinema playing in Worcester, please sign our petition:
We’ll post more details and information as we get it!
And thank you for the support!
