Friendly Neighbourhood Cinema is a pop-up passion project from Stourbridge local Daniel Kearns. Collaborating with a variety of local/independent venues, spaces and places, the cinema made its debut in 2019 with a screening of Dawn of the Dead. They followed this in 2020 by resurrecting King Heath’s historic Kingsway cinema for the first time since it’s closure in 1979 – delivering a pandemic-proof outdoor cinema during the peak of the COVID-19 crisis. FNC’s most recent screenings were 2022’s Life of Brian in the altar of St Thomas’ Church and a VHS screening of 80s cult classic The Lost Boys at Craddock’s The Duke William.
