Beversbrook manager Kevin Whitehorn is looking forward to bringing more popular films to Calne over the next year, “We have seven films confirmed for autumn/winter 2016, with a mixture of titles such as Absolutely Fabulous for adults on Friday evenings and family favourites like The Jungle Book and The BFG during the day on weekends. With such an array films, people may like to take advantage of our Loyalty Card which allows them to watch two films and see the third half price plus receive a free soft drink. ”
Tickets to Big Screen Beversbrook are available on the door or in advance from Calne Visitor & Community Information Centre and Beversbrook.

Guests can park for free at Beversbrook Sports Facility and the bar is open an hour before each film serving a variety of snacks and hot, cold and alcoholic drinks.

The cinema’s 2016/17 film season begins with family classic Matilda (PG) on Friday 30th September at 8pm. This film screening is part of the programme for Wordfest, a new event to Calne celebrating all kinds of communication from 24th September to 1st October.
