BIG plans are underway for the Little Theatre’s community cinema in 2020.

Following a successful 2019, the Wicked Cinema group is set to expand again in its third year.

This year, the Wicked group grew from two cinemas to five to include the Wicked Family and Cult cinemas, as well as a Sing-a-Long cinema for people with dementia and the Stand Against Violence Initiative – working alongside West Rhyl Young People’s Project, Brighter Futures Rhyl and North Wales Police - and Hashtag cinema.

Rhiannon Wyn Hughes, who helps run the cinemas, said:“It has been the most wonderful year, hard work, but the people who come to our cinemas really appreciate what we are trying to do.

“We have been so lucky to have such great volunteers making people feel very welcome and as the young people move on we are looking for even more volunteers next year.”

As well as support from a continually growing audience, the Wicked Cinema has benefitted from funding from Children in Need, Ffilm Cymru Wales and Film Hub Wales and support from the Denbighshire Voluntary Services Council.

With five themed cinemas to fill, the group needs movies and is now turning to people in the community for suggestions of the films they’d like to see for the New Year’s cinema programme.

Ms Hughes and volunteers of the youth led Hashtag cinema are also planning a Star Wars convention in April, as well using their pop up cinema for film showcases in "unusual" locations throughout the area and a regular, extra Horror themed night for the monthly Cult cinema.

Ms Hughes added: "We are so grateful to the hundreds of people who have supported us this year - this is your community cinema and we want to screen the films you want to watch."
