About us

Saffron Screen is Saffron Walden’s very own non-profit Independent cinema, boasting a full size screen, 200 cinema seats, Dolby Digital surround sound and both 35mm and digital projection equipment.

Our Mission:

We aim to screen a wide range of films and events in order to entertain, educate, create a shared experience and improve the quality of life for everyone in Saffron Walden and the surrounding area.

Our big screen and 200 seater auditorium

Based within Saffron Walden County High School, we are open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday (with additional screenings in the school holidays and for midweek special events), and show a wide and varied range of mainstream, independent, art-house and family films as well as streaming special events and arts on screen from around the world.

Parking is free, and we offer a wide range of drinks, snacks and refreshments including a licensed bar for screenings after 6pm. The cinema is completely wheelchair accessible with many other accessibility provisions.

Saffron Screen opened in 2006 and is currently supported by 19 part-time staff and nearly 50 volunteers, all of whom live locally. We are very proud of our cinema and would love to welcome you for a film or event soon.
