About us

Cinema At Eye is your local community cinema.
Cinema At Eye is a not-for-profit, volunteer-led organisation that brings people together through cinema events. We have high definition picture and surround sound facilities for a real cinema experience.

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. It’s because of her enthusiasm and a splendid team of volunteers that Cinema at Eye has always been popular.

Cinema at Eye shows one film on the fourth Friday of each month except August and December. Please check the Home page to see the latest details and the trailers for each film.

With most grateful thanks to the BFI Neighbourhood Cinema for the grant of a superb high specification 5200 Lumens NEC projector.

We take a very informal and friendly approach to our film shows with many of our audience treating the evening out as a great social occasion. We have a fully licensed bar for drinks and refreshments throughout the evening.

Our four monthly programme of films are advertised on our website, Facebook, Eye Magazine and the Eye-to Eye email service.

We are a non-profit cinema. We keep our ticket prices as low as possible and any surplus money is used to improve our Cinema at Eye facilities and to support the Community Centre.
