Keep the reel rolling for independent cinemas across the UK

Crowdfunder is launching a new campaign to keep the reel rolling for independent cinemas across the UK following a challenging period with the Coronavirus pandemic

A place for counter culture to be celebrated, Independent Cinemas provide a unique and important alternative to the multiplex offerings across the UK, giving film fanatics a chance to experience movies in a curated setting. With programmes tailored beyond the latest box office hit, independent cinemas provide a thoughtful selection of film, both new and old, whilst contributing more directly to the local community than national franchises.

Does your cinema require more funding?

  • Make up for lost cash flow due to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Upgrade existing facilities to keep the venue feeling fresh.
  • Expand your cinema offering with another screen.
  • Offer unique rewards to your customers in return for cash for your business.
  • Continue to offer a diverse range of film.
