Welcome to The Small Cinema Oldham

We are a group of young people brought together through our love of films.

Everyone was always saying that there should be a cinema in Oldham… so we decided to do something about it.

After months of hard work we secured an initial Arts Council grant and The Small Cinema was born in August 2010.

Starting with Shaun of the Dead we showed 10 films over a month at an empty shop unit in Oldham Town Centre. The project was a great success and lead to the Playhouse 2 offering to show films at their theatre in Shaw.

Since then we have hosted Oldham’s first film festival, held screenings across the borough and even shown an outdoor movie in a car park!

With the continued support of Oldham Council’s Arts Development team the project goes from strength to strength.

We are now showing family movies on a big screen at Gallery Oldham/Oldham Library every month and working with the new Limehurst Arts Society to deliver films in the local community.
