Ruskin Community Cinema

Cinema - Walking the CaminoWe are community cinema in action at Carshalton Methodist Church. We show films you missed the first time round: cinema classics, musicals, dramas, and comedies.

Our large screen, powerful projector, surround sound and blackout blinds create an attractive cinema environment. We show most films with subtitles to assist people with hearing difficulties.

Our monthly programmes provide a community experience with coffee, tea, ice creams, popcorn and sweets on sale. We also share thought-provoking film notes with our audiences.

Admission is free; donations are appreciated to help cover our licence fees, equipment, films and other expenses.

In normal times our film shows are in the Ruskin Hall, with screenings at 3.00 pm and 7.30 pm unless otherwise stated.

We also occasionally visit homes for older people and clubs for people with dementia.

We are delighted to announce that we are restarting our film shows following the break for the pandemic.

Audience size will be limited initially, with admission by ticket only. Shows will be in the church building because it allows more space for social distancing, and there will be only one show, at 7.30 pm, due to lack of blackout capability in the church.

Our first show is a film for Black History Month on Saturday 9 October. The programme for the rest of the autumn will be announced in due course. To ensure you hear about film shows as soon as they are announced please sign up to receive our email news.

Contact us for details of film shows

Under the terms of our video licence we are not permitted to advertise our films publicly. For details about the films we show please sign up to receive our email news. In normal times we send a newsletter about once a month, and a reminder shortly before each show. We use Mailchimp to operate our mailing list (the sign-up page opens a new browser tab).

You can also get details of our film shows by phoning the box office on 07306 068670.
