King’s Lynn Community Cinema Club 13th season starts with Licorice Pizza at St George’s Guildhall

Thirteen is definitely not unlucky for King’s Lynn Community Cinema Club as the new season of films starting in November marks the start of their 13th year of screening films for local enthusiasts.

The club is now attracting audiences back at pre-Covid levels.

Club chairman, Ian Barton explained: “We were really concerned about how the club would survive the pandemic, but we were able to arrange a few online events during the lock downs which we know our members appreciated and the vast majority have been incredibly loyal and retained their memberships.

"We have been able to keep our membership fees the same for several years, so we think we are offering our members great value at just £2.13 a film.”

In a typical six-month season, they show eight films at the historic St. George’s Guildhall, King Street. which usually include a classic, a foreign language film and titles that are not widely available.

KLCCC has also screened a number of films over the last few years in support of and raising funds for local organisations such as The Purfleet Trust, KL Night Shelter, and most recently the Refugee Council.
