Though the film will start at 11am, our cafe and facilities will be open from 10am for early arrivals, tea, coffee & cake!

Masks & Social Distancing... COVID Precautions (Updated)

Masks & Social Distancing... COVID Precautions (Updated)

Castle COVID-19 precautions We know how much everyone loves a COVID-19 update… Social distancing in screens: We will be hosting both socially distanced and full capacity screenings as part of a controlled, phased move back to being a full capacity venue. We are closely monitoring our screenings and any feedback from guests and staff. Currently we are trialling different ways of identifying which screening is socially distanced or not, but it will always be clear on the website and when booking in person.

The beginning of a beautiful friendship!

The beginning of a beautiful friendship!

Welcome to the Castle Cinema blog! Imagine the smell of freshly made popcorn, maybe a glass of delicious wine or a mug of Dark Arts coffee. That’s right… consider this blog an equivalent addition to the cinema experience, albeit a digital version that you can’t eat. Honestly, stop licking your screen now. Why a blog? There are many reasons we wanted to begin this project. In part it’s providing a space for information that doesn’t fit on the website.

To celebrate the film, we’re offering a pair of tickets and a cocktail from our list for each attendee. For your chance to win, let us know the ingredients you would use for a cocktail called ‘The Castle’.
