Film lovers in the town of Eye have been given a boost after a new projector was funded for a community cinema.
For the last 10 years films have been screened at Eye Community Centre with large audiences enjoying a wide range of the latest movie releases.
And now the organisers of the Cinema at Eye screenings are gearing up to celebrate a major boost to the facility – a new high-quality digital projector.
The projector, which costs more than £4,000, has been funded by the Neighbourhood Cinema Fund, which is run by the British Film Institute to support local cinema throughout the country.
The new projector is being launched at a special showing of Disney's new remake of The Jungle Book which has had enthusiastic reviews from the critics.

During last year it became evident that the equipment needed to be upgraded and an appeal for grants was launched by Kit Brinkley who is part of the cinema team.
Cinema at Eye needs further grants to replace other equipment and help is being sought from local businesses.
Eye Poultry has already offered its support and other fundraising initiatives are being pursued.
The autumn season 2016 includes Florence Foster Jennings, starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, and Golden Years, with Bernard Hill and Virginia McKenna.
