Members of the Ribble Fun Club were delighted to be granted the annual Jack Berry Award for Cultural and Artistic services by Clitheroe Town Council.

The club is based at The New Inn, where films are screened at its “House of Fun Cinema”.

Member Bruce Dowles explained: “We show Films every Sunday at 7-30 p.m. from September to June.

“Under the licence to show films we are a membership-only club, cannot charge entry and cannot advertise the films we are going to show. Obviously that constrains our income and every little bit helps, even accolades like the Town Council’s.

“We show ‘World Cinema’ which includes British films and thrown into the mix are classics, documentaries and animations from around the globe. Membership is just £12 a year with free entrance for all films.

“Lined up for opening the new season are the Oscar-winning ‘The Artist’ and the classic ‘Badlands’ by Terrence Malick. As a response to the Town Council, all of its members will be invited to a screening in the new season.”
