SPONSOR A SHOW AT BILLERICAY COMMUNITY CINEMA
Billericay Community Cinema : a volunteer run, not-for-profit group bringing a bit of Hollywood to our High Street at prices designed to make our shows affordable and accessible. Any profit is either re-invested in the cinema to purchase or replace equipment, or is used to keep prices low for our customers.
Two films are shown each month to an audience of up to 60 people.
“Film Thursday” is aimed at adults. Wine and locally brewed beer are on sale, along with hot drinks, snacks and freshly made popcorn from our own machine, in a comfortable, relaxing environment. As part of our aim of increasing Community Involvement each show features a local “guest” charity / community group which has included BOSP, Billericay Street Pastors, Friends of Lake Meadows and the Billericay Community Archive.
Andy R (Twitter) “Great night out at @BillericayCine watching ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. Well done team. Superb community venture”
“Family Sunday” shows are generally for younger families. Soft and hot drinks are available, snacks and our own freshly made popcorn – and the kids have the opportunity to sit on one of our beanbags at the front of the screen which they love !

WHAT CAN WE OFFER YOUR BUSINESS

- Acknowledge the support of your business in our introduction at the beginning of the film.
- Host promotional materials. If you wish, you may place an advertising flag banner in our main foyer area visible to all guests or provide handouts which we can give to our customers.
OUR MISSION :
To show a wide range of genres on a regular basis designed to appeal to young and old across our Community, at a price that is cheaper than the chains and with a level of service that is both superior and local in feel.
OUR TRACK RECORD :
From the first idea in March 2015 we raised funding and started regular shows in September 2015. We now have 21 successful shows under our belt to 935 people and believe we have established a high level of credibility with our audience.
