Bridgnorth’s MP Philip Dunne has congratulated the Majestic cinema in Bridgnorth on securing a £10,000 grant from the government’s Culture Recovery Fund.
The Culture Recovery Fund included a £30m grant investment for the independent cinema sector to help it reopen and rebuild audience confidence to enjoy the film experience on their local big screen.
The government asked the British Film Institute to administer the grant, and Majestic in Bridgnorth received £9,997, as a one-off safety grant to help make the venue safe for staff and audiences.
Mr Dunne said: “I am delighted Majestic in Bridgnorth has been awarded almost £10,000 to help ensure it is safe for staff and customers. The cinema has been an asset to the town for over 80 years, and we know cinemas need our support during these difficult times. So I am pleased government grant funding is helping another local cultural business.”
