Thornham Village Hall has debuted its new state-of-the-art cinema equipment.

A launch event was  held on Tuesday evening where The Sleeping Beauty was shown  live via satellite from the Royal Opera House in London’s Convent Garden.

West Norfolk Mayor and Mayoress David and Linda Whitby were among 120 other audience members. The cinema-quality high definition projector and 12-speaker surround sound system was installed at the village hall in July last year.

The project was made possible after a grant from the British Film Institute  along with funding from the Thornham United Charity, Active at 60 and also a cash donation from the Thornham Bagladies.
