A statement from us about the EU.
Posted 22 June 2016
Showroom cinema is proud to be supported by the European
Union and has benefitted from the UK’s EU membership since opening its doors in
The original re-development of the old Kennings building
from a derelict car showroom into the Showroom cinema was part-funded by
European Union Objective One funding. For the past 21 years the Showroom has
received consistent and sustained support for its educational and community outreach
work via a variety of European Union funding initiatives.
Showroom cinema is a member of Europa Cinemas - a network of
European cinemas funded by the European Union that supports the release and distribution
of European films and funds projects and learning opportunities across the EU.
As part of this network, we have received financial support and had access to
invaluable opportunities to collaborate and share ideas with other European
partner organisations and friends.
