Lynton in North Devon, with a population of 2,000, is probably the smallest town in England to have a full-time cinema, but it is likely to lose this when celluloid film distribution stops in August.
The ‘Save the Lynton Cinema Appeal’ urgently needs some £4,000 to invest in new digital equipment to enable the cinema to continue operating.
The cost of the conversion is £29,000 and while the cinema trustees can provide £13,000 and the Lyn Valley Society has promised £1,500, the appeal has to raise the remainder.
Do you know any wealthy film fans who will donate to save this valuable 68-seat theatre?
Donations can be sent to the Lynton Cinema at lyntoncinema.co.uk
The Culbone restaurant at Porlock is hosting a fund-raising BBQ on Saturday 23 June to raise funds for the appeal – see details at theculbone.com
