“We recognised that we needed to achieve two things - one was to ensure we are operating with the highest level of Covid-secure measures in place so that our customers feel safe to return and secondly, that we offer a good variety of film choice which they would want to come and see.

“We believe we’ve got both these things covered and with our new Premier Screen open, and an exciting new ‘Our World’ strand of films, we remain ‘good to go’ and ready for our customers.”
