Anticipating our return in the autumn, please tell us how you feel about meeting up again. With the start of our 2020 / 2021 season upon us, the Adderbury Cine Club is really hoping to be able to restart showing films to the villagers. The committee had the pleasure of meeting recently to discuss our plan for reopening and we are looking at a range of options. First and foremost, we are awaiting news about when and how we can use The Institute safely and we are keeping an eye on the latest advice from Cinema For All and the government.
