Touring Lincoln cinema prepares for second season of village film screenings

Lincoln rural touring cinema ‘Flix in The Stix’ is entering its second season of films after successful screenings in June, July and August.

The service, provided by non-profit Blueprint: Film Foundation has received a grant from Film Hub Central East, run by the British Film Institute’s ‘Film Audience Network’, to expand their service into new villages.

First run in seven village locations, the project has welcomed members of the community who would previously have to make lengthy journeys to find a cinema experience.

Tickets cost £3 per screening, with £1 from every ticket being donated to the local village hill committee or parish council for use within the venue or local community.

Food and drinks will also be available, with all proceeds going to the local village hall committee.

Flix in The Stix aims to allow those living in rural communities the chance to enjoy a cinema experience, without the expense or difficulty of travelling to the nearest town or city.
