Opened originally as a 5-screen Odeon on 4th August 1994 with a seating capacity of 998. The extension with 3 additional screens opened in March 2005.

Yes, the cinema has finally been extended after many years of refused planning applications. The program included adding a further three screens to the north western elevation, new customer toilets and staff areas, and extending and remodelling the foyer. The three new auditoria are all of stadia design and seat 86, 153 and 215. A few compromises had to be made – screen 4 lost around 30 seats to create access to the new auditoria, and we lost around 30 car park spaces, although as yet this hasn’t been a problem. The existing five screens were all refurbished back in 2001 to include better acoustic wall panelling, and the screen surfaces were all enlarged recently.

Have they extended the cinema yet…Saw a few films there in a spate a few years ago FaceOff Little Voice Boogie Nights and nothing for a while…a serviceable multiplex which could be bigger in a community which deserves slightly bigger and better
