The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

In the aftermath of World War II, Juliet Ashton forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey as correspondence between her and members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society takes hold, with them sharing their experiences of Nazi Occupied Guernsey. When her idea for a book about their experiences during the war is suggested, Juliet goes to visit the island, making lifelong friends and taking life changing steps on the way. This book is told by way of the letters, and as the reader you become enchanted by the writers of them and the love Juliet comes to feel for each of the Islanders; Dawsey, Amelia, Isola, Eben, Kit and Elizabeth. A beautiful story of love, friendship and the sadness of friends lost.

About Scrooby Cinema

Scrooby Community Cinema holds irregular seasons of film showings in Scrooby Village Hall. The screenings take place on Sunday evening at 8pm.

Between March 2011 and May 2012, over 500 people came to Scrooby Community Cinema!

Anyone can come to see the films; we are not a film club. Entrance costs around 4 on the door; we keep this charge as low as possible. As you would expect, we enforce the age certificate of the film.

Films tend to be mainstream and English-language. The audience is asked for film suggestions at each screening. If you have a favorite film, or one you think would be popular, you can suggest a film on this page.

The projection and sound equipment was donated by the Parish Council and Village Show. We have a Bluray projector and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound system.

Scrooby Community Cinema shows films in Scrooby Village Hall on the third Sunday of every month. We are a not-for-profit village group. Entry charges pay for the public film license (c79 per screening). For more details, contact Stephen Lincoln (07794 018 913), Graham Robbins (07720 509 683) or James Arrowsmith (07818 450 741).
