One of the great side effects of playing live music is the places that you go to play. One of the finest places we’ve encountered is the Totnes Cinema.

Lovingly regenerating a new picturehouse where an original cinema – the Romany Cinema – once existed and closed in the 1960’s. It since became the Library which departed in 2015 leaving an empty shell awaiting it’s re-birth as a community project.

 

It is currently still being built and dedicated to showing great films – not currently being projected in original 35mm film. Will and Jane who started this whole project seem to be your well connected film industry types and much of the equipment was filched from Channel 4 Films when they closed something or other! Apparently the super comfy seats on the balcony came from the viewing room and have therefore accommodated the arses of many a film heart-throb. (I’ve definitely sat where Tom Cruise sat because I felt a very weird, scientologically speaking).

It is quite a thrill to be asked to play in the hour prior to the screening of movies and the spot is perfect for our gentle ambience while the audience filter in and gather about getting drinks and fancy cocktails from the huge bar underneath the big screen.

We have added a few movie themes to our repertoire – which seems to fit the occasion well and hopefully we can continue to help enhance the atmosphere of our favourite picture theatre.
