Graffham Empire Movies

Graffham Empire Movies (GEM) has been bringing some of the
latest and greatest blockbusters to the silver screen in our very
own village for many years now, in conjunction with West Sussex
based professional touring cinema Cinema2U.
GEM has a new committee in place for the 2018-19 season – fresh
faces with fresh ideas, but determined to build on the tradition
of quality films, quality screenings with an opportunity for
friends and neighbours to meet and greet, and all at prices which
represent incredible value compared with the big city cinemas.
There will be seven films screened in the Empire Hall in the 2018-
19 season – one a month from September to April, apart from
December, on Saturdays.
Doors open at 7 pm (6 pm for family features) for screenings at
7.30 pm (6.30 pm for family features). Tickets are sold at the door
– £7.50 for adults and £5 for under 18s.
Refreshments are available from the bar before the screening and
during the interval – cold and hot drinks and tasty nibbles. There
will be changes to the usual range on offer in the coming season
