More accolades for local cinema

An award-winning cinema in Hurstpierpoint has scooped another accolade.

After being named Best New Film Society 2012 by the British Federation of Film Societies (BFFS), the Hurstpierpoint Film Society has gained a distinction for film programming and a commendation for marketing and publicity in this year’s BFFS awards.

The film society burst onto the local entertainment scene in September 2011 with a mix of films for the whole community.

Films are shown with full surround sound at the purpose-built Players Theatre in the High Street, offering a real cinema experience.

Together with a licenced bar, refreshments and homemade cakes, the venture is run entirely by volunteers and is a not-for-profit community initiative.
