Mobile cinema visits 'the sticks'
A mobile cinema is set up in a village hall in Shropshire
The company has a choice of 500 recent films
People living in Shropshire and Herefordshire can enjoy watching all the latest blockbusters thanks to a mobile cinema.

Flicks in the Sticks ensure people living in remote areas don't have to travel far to enjoy the latest films.

The company has a choice of hundreds of films which are shown in village halls in 70 areas across the two counties.

Maggie Humphrey from the company said it was a good chance for people to get together.

"It's just like the cinema after the war because we stop half way through the film and have tea and biscuits.

"It's a good social occasion."

She said a lot of people would normally have to travel miles to see a film.
