Film Night

The one thing that Camelford could do with is a cinema.

Well, we’ve managed to get our hands on some cinema equipment!

So we’ll be running a monthly film night – the 2nd Saturday of each month! 

We’ll select the film to start with but we strongly recommend that you contribute to decision making process – if you want to put in a request for a particular film you’d better turn up!
