Welcome to Moviola

Your Neighbourhood Cinema

Moviola brings the latest and best in cinema to your community, wherever you live in the UK – in the last year nearly 2,000 film shows for 125,000 people. Moviola is registered charity #1107649.


Our Films

Venues choose from our menu of films, which ranges from the cream of British talent (A United Kingdom, Their Finest) and the latest in Hollywood Oscar contenders (Moonlight, La La Land), to world cinema (The Olive Tree, Toni Erdmann). We compile our menu three times a year to offer the latest titles. Check our Films page for titles and find out where they are showing on our What’s On page.

Our Venues

Moviola works with community and not-for-profit groups to bring the latest in movie entertainment to the heart of your community. We show films in town halls, village halls, theatres and schools, and we are always keen to get involved with new venues and partners. Please contact us to find out more about becoming a Moviola venue, or check the What’s On page to find out which films are showing near you.

Our Service

Within our base area of Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Somerset, we offer communities a complete cinema service – projection equipment, screen, film, tickets, publicity materials and a trained presenter.
For venues further away (or those within our base area which have their own equipment) our Associate Moviola scheme provides programming, film booking and advice services.  

Expertise from a staff with over 14 years experience of community cinema combines with local knowledge and enthusiasm to provide exciting and accessible cinema tailored to the needs of everyone in the community.

We have Moviola Associates across England, Scotland & Wales, from Cornwall to Orkney, and are looking forward to welcoming new Associates in Northern Ireland. Have a look at the map on our Venues page to see the 210+ communities that make up the Moviola network.
