Special Selby 950th Anniversary
Film Screening

Tuesday 22nd October 7.30pm
and
Thursday 24th October 10.30am

To celebrate 950 years since the founding of Selby we are screening two locally produced films first seen in 1969.

The Vision of Benedict was directed by local film maker Bill Davison. The film tells the story of Benedict, a monk from Auxerre in France, who followed a vision to travel to England and ended up at the bend of the river Ouse which became Selby.

Festival 69 is a film record, made by Selby Cine Club, of the various events and celebrations commemorating the 900th anniversary 50 years ago.  This included a very special event, the Royal visit of Queen Elizabeth II.

Cochranes of Selby
DVD now available.

Selby Globe present this new documentary remembering a century of shipbuilding in Selby. The production covers the history of Cochrane Shipbuilders and features archive film and interviews with former employees who helped build the Selby ships.

DVD's are now on sale at Carol's Hairstylist on Denison Road, Selby and at the Selby Town Hall box office.

About Us..

Selby Globe Community Cinema presents a series of contemporary and classic films, shown as they should be, on the big screen. Films are shown at the Selby Town Hall venue, currently running four monthly projects: Monday Night Cinema, Silver Screen Matinee with lunch included, film for families during school holidays and Outreach cinema, taking film into rural locations throughout the Selby District.

In 2011 Selby Globe Community Cinema won a highly prestigious Duke of York Community Initiative Award for the development of community spirit, individual leadership and recognition of excellence.

Selby Globe Community Cinema was born from a love of film and lack of cinema in the Selby area that spanned over 30 years. Run entirely by volunteers on a mission to extend the provision of film in Selby and surrounding villages, the group has welcomed over 12,000 people through the doors since their grand opening sell out event: a sing-along screening of Mamma Mia at the Town Hall in September 2009.

It’s an exciting time for film and the Selby Globe Community Cinema!  We are all volunteers with one simple mission – to extend the provision of big screen film presentations in Selby and surrounding villages.

Selby Globe Featured in
New Community Cinema Promotional Video

Selby Globe Community Cinema is featured in Cine Yorkshire’s video promoting rural cinema projects throughout North Yorkshire.

Rural towns and villages are unlikely to get major cinema chains opening a venue locally, so the choices are to either travel a long distance – usually by car or bus (if a service fits in with the screening time) – or wait for the DVD or Blu-ray.

But now, with the growth of volunteer led rural cinemas, film fans can enjoy big screen entertainment closer to home.
