Please note, we have change a couple of events over Christmas. We had originally scheduled the National Theatre Live screening of JOHN on Tuesday 30th December, but as we've got nearer we felt we wanted something more upbeat and seasonal, so have swapped that for Andre Rieu's Home For Christmas. This is Andre's 2012 concert and has previously been released on DVD but is available to cinemas this Christmas so we hope you'll join us for this great big-screen experience which starts at 7pm.

Next, we added the Mauriinsky Theatre 2013 production of Swan Lake for Sunday 28th December - however, since then there has been a falling-out between the Mauriinsky Theatre and the screening's producer which has led to all worldwide screenings being pulled. Very frustrating for us! We tried to get an alternative, but nothing quite worked - apologies for any inconvenience. If you bought Swan Lake tickets please return to the seller for a refund.

On Sunday 28th December we will now be showing a special version of the Disney film Frozen. This Sing Along version will have song lyrics on screen for the audience to join in. The screening starts at 2.30pm.

Both events can now be booked at Malcolm's Musicland 01257 264362 or when the theatre box office is open (30 minutes before panto start time). Andre Rieu is also available to book online - just follow the links here.

There a couple of single seats available for nearly every performance, but none together.

A few people have asked if we're showing children's films over the Summer, and the answer is no. Sorry for any disappointment, but this August we're taking it a little easier with many of the volunteers going on holiday.

More than that, though, the summer closedown is a chance to do some building maintenance and refurbishment. Some of the auditorium seats are being moved so we have fewer odd seats which means a few less couples will be split up on busy nights (in theory); we're also hopefully replacing some doors and touching up the paintwork. We'll also be doing some urgent backstage work in order to make sure the building stays up! With all this and PAT testing it just isn't possible to open up to the public.

However, we're back with a vengeance in September. Look for the film listings coming soon, including dates of the children's films which are being supported by a grant from Chorley Council.

In  the meantime... have a great Summer!
