About Gunnerside Village Hall

The Village Hall (originally called the Literary Institute) was built in the 1860s, and has been formally registered as a charity since 1940. It is managed by a committee of Trustees representing all the organisations which use the hall regularly.

The upper floor of the Hall (view floor plan) comprises a large single room with a raised stage, which has a licensed seating capacity of 110 for performances. The ground floor (view floor plan) has two smaller meeting rooms, which can be combined to form a single room, and a well-equipped modern kitchen which was re-furbished in 2006. There are gentlemen's and ladies' cloakrooms but without disabled access. All doors and windows were fully double-glazed in 2010,

The Hall has a premises licence for the sale and consumption of alcohol.

LION Starring Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara Saroo, a five-year-old child in India of a poor rural family, finds himself by accident on a train to Calcutta, 1500 miles from home. Unable to identify himself or his home to the authorities, Saroo is sent to an orphanage. From there he is adopted by an Australian family and grows up in a loving, prosperous home.

INTERLUDE IN PRAGUE Starring: James Purefoy, Samantha Barks, Dervla Kirwan, Adrian Edmondson. A powerful story covering a few turbulent months in Prague in the short life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, while he was composing his operatic masterpiece Don Giovanni.  A love story and a tragedy, the film sees Mozart in a Shakespeare in Love style drama

A UNITED KINGDOM Starring: David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Tom Felton In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage was challenged by their families and also by the British and South African governments. South Africa, having recently introduced apartheid, found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighbouring country intolerable and threatened to deny Britain access to its uranium and gold if it didnít prevent the marriage

SULLY Starring Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney The story of the "Miracle on the Hudson" and its aftermath. Captain Chesley Sullenberger, nicknamed "Sully", glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and career.

THEIR FINEST Starring Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy. During the London Blitz, the Ministry of Information recruits a scriptwriter to produce propaganda films that the public will watch without scoffing.
