A COMMUNITY Cinema is celebrating its first birthday.

The All Saints Community Cinema was set up after the Pier Pavillion venue closed its doors last year.

Since then the film it has regular film showings in the All Saints Lesser Hall in Victoria Square, Penarth.

Now the cinema is celebrating the fact that it is still going strong and showing films.

Jane McLaughlin, one of the organisers of the community cinema, said: “We have a regular audience of approximately 100 people. We offer a warm welcome, friendships have been made over the year, and our films sell out almost as soon as they are announced.”

To celebrate the first birthday of the cinema, everyone enjoyed a piece of birthday.

The next screening is Edie, on October 18 and currently has a waiting list.
