Phoenix Cinema Trustees


The Trustees formulate strategy, ensure that policy and practice are in keeping with our aims and objectives, and that the Phoenix meets its legal and financial obligations. The Board acts as the guardian of the Trust's vision, and values and supports its staff. The Trustees act voluntarily, and receive no benefits from the Phoenix Cinema.
