#UPP Crowdfunder – We did it!

We did it! Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who has donated, bought rewards, and shared news about our #SaveTheUPP Crowdfunder. The outpouring of support we received on the day we launched this campaign and during the subsequent weeks has been something the staff and the volunteers will never forget. Thank you.

Seeing as we surpassed our first, second, and third target in under one week, we’ve decided that we’ll be closing the Crowdfunder page to further donations. With your help we have raised a staggering £58,000! We are now able to re-open in September as planned with a full 7-day-a-week programme. We can now also get on the task of packaging and sending out rewards to those who kindly bought them.

It goes without saying that we’re absolutely thrilled with the response we’ve had to this campaign. The messages we have received throughout have inspired us to push on and get ready to re-open in September. If you have a spare 3 minutes, could we ask you to please complete the following survey telling us your thoughts about the campaign (whether you donated or not), and about our upcoming ‘Welcome Back’ programme.


The road out of this crisis is a long and uncertain one, but you have given us the best possible chance to emerge from the other side as a thriving independent cinema.

If you’d like to come and pick up your rewards, we’ll be on-site at the cinema between 10am–6pm on Monday 20th, Tuesday 21st, and Wednesday 22nd July. We’ll then mail out the remaining uncollected item on Thursday and Friday.

Thank you again for all of your support, and we hope to see when we re-open.

Kindest regards
All the staff and volunteers at the UPP
