A Suffolk town's third cinema will open for the first time today. 

Everyman cinema is set to open inside the former Debenhams store in Bury St Edmunds' arc shopping centre. 

The venue will have three cinema screens, made up of 228 seats, and aims to bring a 'luxurious cinema experience' to the county for the first time. 

As well as a cinema, there will also be a bar and restaurant area.

Film-lovers will be able to enjoy sofas and armchairs in the state-of-the-art theatre, with an extensive food and drink offering also available. 

A range of cocktails, wine, beer and non-alcoholic drinks will also be on offer for people to enjoy.

Primark will occupy the remaining space in the former Debenhams store. 

The fashion retailer initially hoped to be open by the end of 2023, but confirmed in December it would be unveiling its new store in March. 

A third unit could still open inside the huge venue. 

London-based property agent Brasier Freeth is advertising a long-term lease on a 10,850 square foot site adjacent to the cinema.

It would cost £125,000 per annum.
