We can’t believe that this year has gone so quickly. Twelve months ago, we didn’t even have screens in place, let alone movies to show. Now we’ve shown dozens of films to thousands of people and had a blast in the process. It has been a roller coaster ride and we don’t plan on getting off any time soon.


SINGFENCESROGUE ONEMANCHESTER BY THE SEA will be here for your New Years festivities. We had quite a busy weekend and look forward to having you visit us one last time in 2016.
