The next family cinema screening will be ENCHANTED on Saturday Dec. 11th
– doors open at 2:30pm.

An instantly familiar Disney princess finds herself catapulted out of her animated fairytale world and into real-life 21st Century New York City in a spell cast by an evil Queen. Several characters from her own world follow her and try to help her get back – or not… Things get complicated as she finds herself having to choose between her handsome but dopey fairytale prince and a real life Manhattan divorce lawyer.

Combining animation, live action and CGI, ‘Enchanted’ is a romantic comedy fantasy for all ages. Children will enjoy the tale of the beautiful princess in trouble, the crazy adventures and the laughs when fantasy characters collide with cynical New Yorkers. Adults will enjoy some sly adult humour as well as ticking off the Disney references from the past: Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White… they are all in there.

The musical score is by Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors) and Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pocahontas, Wicked). The cast includes Timothy Spall, Susan Sarandon and Julie Andrews as the narrator.

Bring the family to enjoy this sugar-coated nutty seasonal treat together.

A free drink and a snack for all under-12s.

Rated PG for some mildly scary images and innuendo.

Tickets £5 in cash on the door (under 12’s free). Audience numbers will be limited to ensure plenty of space between groups. To reserve places – contact fulbourncinema@btinternet.com or simply turn up.

The new socially distanced cinema layout provides seating around small tables and with extra seating available further back. Please bring your facemask if you want to.

Other evening screenings are planned for 2022 (schedule coming soon). Confirmation about further screenings will be published here, and also on the Fulbourn Arts Facebook page HERE, the Fulbourn Community Noticeboard facebook page HERE, and the Fulbourn Group Information Facebook page HERE.

Keep an eye on these pages and if you’re not on Facebook then just drop a line to Fulbourn Cinema email at fulbourncinema@btinternet.com and we’ll let you know about the next screening.


Summer holiday family film shows were a new departure for Fulbourn Cinema but they are proving well worth doing. On 4 August we showed Paddington to an audience of 35 children and parents. Whether people had seen the film before or it was their first time didn’t seem to matter – everyone seemed glued to the screen throughout. Of course, it’s one of those films that works on two levels, with sly humour provided for the adults as well as the more obvious bits for the children.

For our second show on 25 August we screened Raya and The Last Dragon, a very recent Disney animation, with an audience of 45. The dialogue and plot line were maybe more suitable for the older kids but everyone seemed to enjoy it, with lots of ‘Oohs!’ and ‘Aahs!’ at the exciting bits. One young man was heard to announce proudly that this was the fifth time he’d seen it.

We had learnt from the first show that free soft drinks and snacks throughout the show was perhaps not the wisest strategy, so all children were given raffle tickets for one free drink and one snack. Everyone seemed happy with that so we will do the same for future shows.


The Cinema organising group reserve the Townley Memorial Hall for regular film nights. Doors open at 7.30 pm and shows commence at 7.45 pm.

Certifications are shown where we have been able to establish them. Please take them into account when deciding whether or not to bring young children with you.

Hope to see you there!
