Mask wearing is now a personal choice in England, but we politely encourage you to wear one when you visit our theatre to protect our audiences and staff.
Performances in Cornerstone Arts Centre's auditorium will not be socially distanced, however our aircon extractor system means that air flow will be fresh and not recycled. For your peace of mind, all our staff are carrying out lateral flow tests at least once a week.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to back to Cornerstone.

Didcot Film Club shows the sort of films you won’t see in mainstream cinemas, including Hollywood classics, foreign language and British Independent films.
The film club meets one Wednesday evening a month in the Cornerstone auditorium at 7:30pm.
Timbuktu (French - 2014, cert 12) on 29th Sep, 7:30pm
The film follows the people of Timbuktu in central Mali after the city's occupation by extremist Islamists bearing a jihadist black flag. The jihadists enforce a strict interpretation of sharia, including passing sentences of lashes and stoning. The Islam of the jihadists is contrasted with that preached by the local imam. A story which is once again topical.
Kind Hearts and Coronets (UK - 1949, cert PG) on 27th Oct, 7:30pm
A distant poor relative of the Duke D'Ascoyne plots to inherit the title by murdering the eight other heirs (all played by the comic genius, Alec Guinness) who stand ahead of him in the line of succession. We thought that we needed to pick something funny but familiar to get us back into the habit of watching and laughing together. The film has been recently re-mastered to improve the production quality and is a lovely warm blanket of a film that we can wrap ourselves in as we move out of a dark and difficult year.
Ammonite (UK - 2020, cert 15) on 24th Nov, 7:30pm
A British romantic drama in which a young woman (Saoirse Ronan) is sent to stay with acclaimed palaeontologist, Mary Anning (Kate Winslet), developing an intense relationship that is life-altering for both women.
