In the county town of Buckingham, the Chandos Cinema closed down back in the 1980’s (see separate Cinema Treasures entry).

As with many similar towns, in the absence of a replacement commercial cinema, the community rallied round and, in November 2005, The Film Place was founded. It is an independent, part-time community cinema operated by a not-for-profit charitable company, run by volunteers.

Films are usually screened twice a week, on Fridays and Saturdays, in the large lecture theatre at the University of Buckingham’s Chandos Road Building. The screen is 7.5m wide and there is a Surround Sound system.

A wide range of films is screened: mainstream, independent, foreign, classic and family films. Special events are held, such as Q&A sessions with filmmakers.

The Film Place is supported by Buckingham Town Council with an annual grant. Financial assistance has also been received from Aylesbury Vale District Council’s Community Chest.
