Royston’s community cinema is set to reopen later this month.

Royston Picture Palace will be showing films again from Friday, December 18.

Based in the town hall, the cinema will screen a weekend of entertainment and festive cheer.

It will then return in January with what organisers describe as “an exciting and varied schedule to brighten up your New Year”.

The first movie to be shown on Friday, December 18 at 7.30pm will be Mank (12A).

The latest film from David Fincher (Gone Girl, The Social Network) is a brilliant examination of Hollywood during the production of 1941’s Citizen Kane.

It follows its veteran co-writer Herman J Mankiewicz (Gary Oldman) as he struggles to complete the screenplay.
