Your Community Cinema
Moviola is a non-profit organisation, bringing the latest and best in cinema across England, Wales & Scotland.
We are the heart of community cinema, helping venues screen an array of films from blockbusters to independent releases and help keep their audiences coming back for more. In 2018, we screened over 3000 shows reaching audiences in excess of 200,000 people from local communities throughout the UK.
Venues choose from our menu of films, which range from the cream of British talent (The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society, The Mercy) and the latest offerings from Hollywood (Christopher Robin, First Man), to world cinema (The Guardians, Cold War). 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.
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.
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.
