The Chapel Gallery brings back the chance to watch films as a cinema experience in Ormskirk once more…
Cinema is finally coming back to Ormskirk town centre after almost 40 years as part of a programme of events planned for Ormskirk’s Chapel Gallery this spring.
Residents across the Borough can see Friday Night Films and the cinema will host and a number of film clubs, plus party and function packages that can be booked.
West Lancashire’s older generation will remember their visits to The Pavilion, which closed in 1981, and to have a cinema in the Borough once again will be great for people of all ages.
Friday Night Films will take place twice a month and begin with musical movies and great book adaptations. Hairspray, the original cult musical movie, will be the first film screened on Friday 10 May and will delight lovers of musicals. Be sure not to miss the historic opening night film by booking your tickets in advance, as they are sure to sell fast. Dress up as well to make it an unforgettable evening.
First Man will be shown on Friday 31 May and provides a powerful insight into the challenges faced by the first astronauts to land on the moon. The film is based on “The life of Neil A. Armstrong,” the official biography the first astronaut to walk on the Moon.

Film fans can pay £6 for a cinema ticket or make a night of it and book a cinema ticket and two-course meal for £20, and enjoy a meal prepared by the award winning Modern Caterer. Places for dining are limited so must be booked in advance from the online menu. A licensed bar will also be available.
Throughout the week the Gallery will host a range of other cinema experiences at very reasonable prices.
