My brother and his wife live in Pershore and have visited this venue several times. On my last visit we all went to see a film and I was kind of expecting something akin to a 16mm presentation in the village hall. I was pleasantly surprised to find an inviting foyer with licensed bar leading to a spacious auditorium with stadium seating in two sections. The “stalls” section can be rolled back under the circle section in order to use the floor area for alternative activities. There is a good sized “proper” 2.35:1 screen with variable side masking, so a scope feature is not seen on a smaller screen than the ads and trailers, as in many multiplexes. Sadly, no tabs were in use, but the excellent digital projection was overseen by a projectionist (remember them?).

The building was constructed on the site of a supermarket, courtesy of Six Architecture, although the listed façade is that of a former 19th century merchant’s house. The seating is in stadium style and although it stages plays, concerts and exhibitions, as of 2018 the staple diet is very much cinema.
