To complete this work, we will be temporarily closing our cinema for a few weeks, from 30 October – 23 November so that work can be carried out efficiently and safely. We are looking forward to implementing these new upgrades which will provide an enhanced experience for our customers while reducing the carbon footprint of our cinema, saving energy and costs – helping us ensure all our funding we receive is used as effectively as possible.


We plan to reopen our cinema on Thursday 23 November with a packed film and live screening programme which will include Scorsese’s blistering adaptation of David Grann’s non-fiction bestseller, Killers of the Flower Moon, Typist Artist Pirate King which tells the story of artist Audrey Amis, heartfelt family drama 20,000 Species of Bees, Disney’s upcoming family film Wish and the uplifting The Miracle Club starring Maggie Smith.


Alongside new releases, including Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds And Snakes, our December programme will also be sprinkled with festive classics and magical event cinema including a live screening of the Royal Ballet’s ever-popular The Nutcracker.
