A COMMUNITY cinema welcomed their 50,000th customer through its doors last week.

Saffron Screen, the independent cinema based at Saffron Walden County High School, celebrated their continued success at attracting people to their screenings and reaching this landmark figure.

Ole Hanson, from Sewards End, was the 50,000th person to visit the cinema when he went to see Michael Moore's film Sicko on Friday February 8. To celebrate the occasion, he was presented with four free cinema tickets by the chairman of Saffron Screen Rebecca del Tufo.

Mrs del Tufo said: "This is a fantastic achievement for Saffron Screen and it demonstrates the strong support we are receiving from local people."

The not-for-profit cinema opens every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, with additional screenings in the school holidays and shows a

range of mainstream, independent, art-house and children's films.
