Walsingham Picture Palace Summer Programme

Our Summer 2014 programme is here!

Programmes begin at 7.30pm with a short, and usually also the trailer for the next film.

Shorts are chosen for us by the distributors, Moviola, to tie in with the main film, and offer us a rare chance to see a range of creative film making. This is how young film makers start out in the industry, and how experienced film makers experiment. They are often great fun and/or thought provoking. We never quite know what we are going to get.

Walsingham Picture Palace at Walsingham Parish Hall, 14 High Street, Walsingham NR22 6AA. 

Doors open at 7pm for ticket sales and refreshments. Tickets £4.00 (£3.50 members) on the door.
