This January, Fairfield Flicks will be screening four top films at Fairfield Village Hall.
Fairfield Flicks is Bromsgrove’s volunteer run Community Cinema, where films are projected onto the Hall’s 5metre wide screen using a HD projector.
Launched in September 2019, reviews on Trip Advisor have been very positive and audiences are enjoying the friendly experience.
“The quality of the huge screen is extremely impressive in such an intimate setting, the chairs are very comfortable and the atmosphere is inviting. Refreshments can also be purchased inexpensively. It really is a great way to see films that are otherwise unavailable to you. Highly recommend!” Julia
“Warm and friendly location ….providing a good standard of audio-visual experience with well-priced refreshments. The seats are comfortable, the room is an ideal temperature, the welcome is warm, and there is a real sense that this is run by dedicated volunteers for the benefit of many in the community.” Louise
Fairfield Flicks is attracting a mixed age audience and people enjoying the Fairfield Flicks experience come from across Bromsgrove District.
Fairfield Flicks is making a difference, reducing loneliness and social isolation amongst older people in the community. Several older people are volunteering for Fairfield Flicks and many audience members enjoy a catch up before the start of each film.
For the hard of hearing, the Hall has a hearing loop, a facility that allows people with hearing aids to experience the audio quality of the film. People with hearing aids should ensure that the hearing aid can be used with a Hearing Loop; if uncertain how to switch the aid to loop, people should see their audiologist.
There is FREE parking at the Village Hall and affordable refreshments, popcorn and ice cream.
Tickets can be purchased in advanced, maximum number of people per screening is 40. For further information visit www.fairfieldflicks.org.uk

Academy Award nominee Ian McKellen takes on the iconic role of Detective Sherlock Holmes, one of the British literature’s most reveered characters in the film MR HOLMES. In 1947, the world famous sleuth has retired to a remote Sussex farmhouse, living in relative anonymity with only his housekeeper Mrs Munro and her young son Roger for company. Cantankerous, demanding and frustrated with the mis-representation of him in Watson’s best-selling novels, he diverts his attention to an unsolved case. As the mystery deepens, Sherlock tries desperately to recall the events of 30 years ago that ultimately led to his retirement. Starring Academy Award nominee Laura Linney (The Savages), Frances de la Tour (Harry Potter) and newcomer Milo Parker, MR HOLMES is adapted from Mitch Cullin’s 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind and is directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters).
