The programme for 2017 will be varied, taking in a range of genres from classic musical, comedy, horror, silent classics and contemporary comedy, along with a range of event cinema all within a ‘black & white’ theme.

The main screenings take place in the magnificent Opera House, opened by Jessie Matthews and Sonny Hale in 1939 as one of the most luxurious and sophisticated combination theatres and super cinemas of the pre-war period. There will also be screenings in the Grand Foyer, Derham Lounge and the Elizabethan splendour of the Baronial Hall.

New for 2017 a competition for amateur film-makers. Submissions are now open for short films to win a cash prize of £500 and the first ever ‘Golden Seagull’ award.
