We Help Boost Gillingham Community Cinema's Relocation

We have made a significant contribution of £1,000 to the Gillingham Community Cinema, following the relocation of its facilities to a new venue. The donation will ensure that the residents of Gillingham can still enjoy the latest films.

Supporting our communities

Originally located at the Gillingham Methodist Church, the cinema has relocated to Vicarage Schoolroom due to the closure of the church hall. The funds donated will be instrumental in addressing various expenses associated with the relocation process.

From essential electrical work to securing professional installations for specialised equipment, the donation will enable the cinema to overcome the upcoming logistical challenges. Additionally, the contribution will cover costs such as equipment maintenance and security measures, ensuring a safe and immersive cinematic experience for all.

Gordon Amery, Organiser at the Gillingham Community Cinema, said: "We're very grateful for the donation from Taylor Wimpey as it has allowed us to get the cinema equipment installed just in time for our opening night. There was a certain amount of funds available from our old location but not enough to cover all of the costs involved in the move. Hopefully, there should now even be a little money left over to enable us to purchase some additional comfy chairs for the cinema."

The cinema is a firm favourite with the local community and the relocation of the Gillingham Community Cinema represents an exciting development for the local community, offering enhanced accessibility to cultural experiences and fostering a sense of community engagement. Our contribution reflects our dedication to supporting initiatives that enrich the quality of life for residents and contribute to the overall areas in which we build.
