Bringing Cinema Back to Buntingford

​​
From 1933 to 1958, Buntingford had a thriving cinema at the Benson Hall called “The Cosy.” In February 2017, the Buntingford Film Club brought cinema back to Buntingford in a flurry of pink bunting and banners with a programme of children’s films, foreign films, recent releases and timeless classics.

Our idea was to give Buntingford citizens a cinema experience that was vastly different from going to a multiplex: so – we served Champagne and a cheese/fruit plate with Gigi and got everyone to dress “French – oo-la-la!”  We served chocolate cake with Matilda, frobscottle and sonzzcomber’s with the Big Friendly Giant etc. We called each screening a “Cinema Event.”  
        
There’s no membership fee – just buy your tickets (£5.00 for the Family matinees, £7.50 for the evening) – either online here, following the “Book Now” links, or, if you don’t want to pay the booking charge, buy them in person  from Chris Dellar, the estate agent in Buntingford High Street.

All showings are at the Benson Hall, opposite the Co-op, unless otherwise stated.
