Initiative to engage young film enthusiasts launches at Stamford Arts Centre

Fun for the whole family is on offer at Stamford Arts Centre as the historic venue launches its cinema brochure for the summer season.

The upcoming programme is a vibrant mix of films for all ages and interests - from unmissable blockbuster hits, to timeless classics and thought-provoking documentaries.

The Arts Centre, which is managed by South Kesteven District Council, will also introduce a brand new Kids Club to welcome young film enthusiasts into family-friendly screenings.

The exciting initiative is designed to inspire and entertain young audiences, along with discounted ticket prices for adults and a loyalty card scheme for young movie buffs.

Adults accompanying children to Kids Club screenings will pay just £5.

Children can collect a loyalty card stamp each time they visit a Kids Club screening. They’ll enjoy a free bag of popcorn on their third visit and a free Kids Club ticket on their sixth.

Upcoming Kids Club screenings include The Secret of Kells on Saturday 15th June, If on Saturday 6th July, James And The Giant Peach on Saturday 20th July and Labyrinth on Saturday 27th July.

The fun doesn’t stop there - as well as Kids Club screenings, other family favourites include Inside Out 2 and Despicable Me 4.

Fans of the opera will enjoy screenings of Andrea Chenier from the Royal Opera House on Tuesday 11th June and André Rieu’s 2024 Maastricht Concert: Power of Love on Saturday 31st August.

Thought-provoking documentaries offer fresh perspectives on engaging stories such as Big Banana Feet, a captivating record of comedian and actor Billy Connoly on the cusp of his internation fame. Two screenings will be held on Monday 10th June and Wednesday 12th June.

Made In England: Powell and Pressburger is a heartfelt and personal tribute from director Martin Scorsese to the work and influence of British filmmakers Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.

Screenings will be held on Friday 14th and Monday 17th June.

On Thursday 27th June, audiences will be left guessing as the Midsummer Mystery Film will be specially selected by Arts Centre programmers and not revealed until the film begins. For those interested in the surprise screening, early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment!

The Arts Centre will also welcome back local film fanatic Ben Reynolds for post-screening discussions. It will present audiences with the chance to have an informal chat about their reactions to the film over a drink in The Gallery, as well as an exciting opportunity to see independent and international films not often found locally.

Cinema Speak is free to attend, starting with Io Captiano on Monday 10th June at 8pm, La Chimera on Thursday 4th July at 8pm and Ama Gloria on Tuesday 23rd July at 8pm.  

Stamford Arts Centre works with the Independent Cinema Office in support of programming, film selecting and marketing. The venue offers a range of accessible screenings, including relaxed, captioned and subtitled screenings.

The new cinema guide is available for download on the Arts Centre website. Free printed copies and Kids Club loyalty cards can be collected from the box office.
