Cinema club coming to Rose Hill Community Centre

In partnership with Rose Hill Community Centre, Film Oxford will be providing a monthly film screening from Monday 29 January 2018.

Initially, there will be eight film sessions on the last Monday of every month in the Norman Brown room, with a 2pm screening for adults and a 4pm one for young people and families. There will be no need to book but there is a capacity of around 80 people per session.

There is a real opportunity for the community to get involved, from suggesting the name of the “cinema” and potential films to be screened, to supporting the running promotion and production of events. Anybody interested should contact Geron at or Lydia at

Film Oxford has been providing outdoor and indoor film sessions since the community centre opened and has now acquired funding from the Big Lottery Fund enabling them to buy the equipment and licence necessary to make it more of a regular event in Rose Hill.

Geron Swann, Centre Director at Film Oxford, said: “After our many outdoor screenings in Rose Hill, Film Oxford is really excited to be working with the community centre again on something that could be quite special. A big thank you to the Big Lottery and Rose Hill Community Centre for supporting the cinema.”

Councillor Dee Sinclair, Board Member for Culture and Communities, said: “Everyone loves a good film and these monthly screenings will offer not only an opportunity to see some favourite classics again, but also to explore new films that you might otherwise miss. And on top of that you’ll be able to watch them in the company of friends and enthusiasts, making each presentation a community event as well as a cultural one.”
