Bungay's Fisher Theatre has received a generous £2500 donation from the Bungay Film Club on its 10th anniversary.
The film club have worked closely with the theatre for many years, and regularly screen films on Mondays when the theatre is closed.
It is the last Fisher Theatre in the country, and the fourth oldest cinema still operating in the UK.
A spokesperson said: "Not only has the club given to the fundraising campaign generously, but with the aim of celebrating their special birthday they're also holding a dinner with film night on September 3."
Since April the community has been supporting the theatre, which has a debt to the Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF), from which the facility was purchased in 1996.
The AHF will give the community the chance to own the building if they fundraise £150,000 by the end of the year.
Last month the theatre announced it had raised £20,000 already and has more fundraisers planned.
