Newmarket’s popular community cinema is in danger of folding unless it can find some new volunteers.

Cinema at Newmarket (CAN) has been operating from The Stable in Newmarket High Street for the past 11 years. It screens recently-released films every month on Sunday and Monday evenings.

But one of its two projectionists is moving out of the area and the other is looking to reduce his hours.

“It’s a crisis for Cinema at Newmarket,” said one of the organisers, Hilda Halliwell.

“These are the skilled members of our team and we desperately need someone to do this technical, computer-based job for us.

“We really need two new people, otherwise that will be the end of a facility in the town which approximately 80 people per month have come to enjoy,” she added.

If anyone can help the organisation they should contact Hilda on 01638 601866, Jan Rigby on 01638 662813 or Linda Bellamy on 01638 602016 as soon as possible.
