Cinema lovers from across the area flocked to Emsworth to commemorate the history of a cafe building.

Proud Greenhouse Cafe owners Sian and George Georgeou organised the pop-up cinema fundraiser Screen at the Greenhouse to celebrate their ten-year anniversary and to commemorate the clock and bell tower building in St Peter’s Square, which was a Pavilion Cinema in the 1940s and 1950s.

All profits raised went to the charity Cancer Research UK.

The event showcased a host of cinematic experiences, from The Muppets Movie to a rolling programme from Chichester Harbour Conservancy and a cycle cinema day on Sunday, with films being screened by cycle power.

The Muppet Movie was a sell-out, with residents taking up their seats and movie-themed refreshments in 
support of the fundraiser.

“It is really nice because it has served the purpose of celebrating the history of the building as well as our own ten-year celebration.

“It has been brilliant for the community and for Emsworth,” said cafe owner Sian Georgeou.

Aine Comyns, nine, from Emsworth, who went along for a birthday party, said: “I think it is very exciting and well organised. It is a very good idea and kind of them to be raising money for charity.”
