Cinema At Eye is your local community cinema, now fully upgraded
Cinema At Eye is a not-for-profit volunteer-led organisation, which brings people together through cinema events. We have the latest HD and surround sound facilities with plans during 2017 to introduce acclaimed productions captured live in London’s West End and elsewhere through live and recorded broadcasts.
Cinema at Eye started in 2005 under the direction of the indefatigable Penny McSheehy, whose commitment to the Eye Community Centre and its activities in support of local people is well known and documented. It’s because of her enthusiasm and her splendid team of volunteers that Cinema at Eye has always been popular.
Eye Community Centre offers a modern hall, bar and lounge as well as sports and leisure facilities including a skate board park generously funded by Eye Town Council. All are located at the Town Moors Playing Field, off Magdalen Street (IP23 7AJ). Cinema at Eye is linked directly to our registered Charity No.1012697.

Cinema at Eye shows two films per month on a Friday at fortnightly intervals. Please check the Home page to see the latest details and the trailers for each film.
We plan to increase the number and variety of films as well as to offer our projection facilities for businesses and community organisations as well as for private use.
With most grateful thanks to the BFI Neighbourhood Cinema for the grant of a superb high specification 5200 Lumens NEC projector.
See details of our Cinema at Eye Appeal for the funding of additional cinema equipment, as well as the hearing aid induction loop.
We take a very informal and friendly approach to our film shows with many of our audience treating the evening out “to go to the movies” as a great social occasion. We run a fully licensed bar for drinks and refreshments throughout the evening.
With an emailing list of over 100 we keep our audience informed of our activities. When we receive our quarterly film list from Moviola we invite those on the list to vote for their preferred films. You can join our mail list by contacting: email@example.com
