Your Community, Your Cinema – Your Support

Your Community Cinema, the Birks Cinema.

Over the past few weeks we have been overwhelmed with messages of support, and an incredible number of financial donations and support. The community has donated over £25,000 in a matter of weeks – an amazing start to our fundraising campaign which takes us halfway to opening our doors again. We are thrilled to see so many in the community raising money on our behalf too as part of the 2.6 Challenge. Keep going Birks fans! We know we can do it, but we still need your help!

Behind the scenes the trustees are hard at work on grants and funding applications, painting the Cinema for when we do re-open, and working to secure further support and revenue. Read here about our newest initiative, the Birks Cinema Beer Club which we have just launched and is now live!

Our community development team are busy too with activities online for many in the community and support and work with the Timebank Team. The team are working in and around our community to help those who are self-isolating. If you need help or support please contact them on 07507479555. Please do call if you need help or email tayvalleytimebank@gmail.com if you want to volunteer. Click here for more on our community programmes underway at the moment.

We also hope to make an exciting announcement soon about bringing the cinema to you elsewhere… but more on that shortly.

We know that so many people across the country and in our community have been impacted by recent events. And we don’t ask lightly for your continued support, but as our doors remain closed for the foreseeable future, and we still don’t know when we can re-open, we will need to rely on our community to help us to re-open.

We are a community cinema and a charity. Closing the doors has a much wider impact than not being able to show some great films. Every penny that is donated or raised at the cinema, goes into our community, whether supporting those locally or helping to keep the cinema operating in the future.

Please donate whatever you can now, and spread the word.

Stay up-to-date with all the things birks..
