Celebrating the asset’s revival – thanks to charity Community First and a grant from a local firm – the event on May 30 featured an inaugural screening enjoyed by residents.

Viewers at the Leigh Park Community Centre Cinema also got to enjoy goodie bags from new local shop Sweet Like Me.

Because of licencing it cannot be named, but a musical – as part of a ladies’ night – will be screened at the cinema at 7pm on June 29.
