Graffham Empire Movies
Autumn 2019 season
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.
It has built a tradition of screening great quality films with an opportunity for friends and neighbours to meet and greet, and all at prices which represent incredible value compared with the big town cinemas.
Doors open at 7 pm for screenings at 7.30 pm unless otherwise indicated. 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.
The 2019-20 season has a musical theme – a mixed bag of highly acclaimed titles, with a varying twist of music about them in one way or another.
To help keep GEM financially viable, we are very grateful to the support from a number of local businesses – and encourage filmgoers to support them in return: (NB list to be confirmed) Maybe put the bullets in different colours?

A foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their astonishing lead singer Freddie Mercury. The only thing more extraordinary than their music is their story.
Rami Malek won an Oscar and BAFTA as best actor for his lead role. The film won three other Oscars and a second BAFTA along with a trophy cabinet full of other awards.
Feel free to come in Queen fancy dress!
Saturday 26 October 2019 Doors open at 6 pm for 6.30 pm screening
12A 112 minutes
Based on the unlikely true story of ten fisherman from a tiny Cornish village who are signed by one of the world’s biggest recording companies and achieve a Top 10 hit with their debut album of traditional sea shanties.
A charming, gentle comedy, with some wonderful singing harmonies and breathtaking shots of one of England’s most photogenic counties (outside West Sussex). A British gem described by one critic as “2019’s feel good film, guaranteed to left lift the spirits for years to come – it’s just such a lovely movie”.
