Building work and refurbishment starts today and will involve reduced performances and temporary closure of the cinemas for a time over the next few months. Check the centre’s web site for details.

Refurbishment of both cinemas at Chapter is a part of an extensive improvement plan to deal with problems with the 100-year old main building and improve the theatre and entrance areas.A number of fund-raising initiatives are in place and work is expected to begin in 2008.

Ian must have been there pre-1987, during the early years when things were a bit basic, but that was reflected in the admission price.
The new build cinema was a great step forward and certainly better than similar-sized auditoria in high-street triple/twins, and has given excellent service for 20 years and the future for which refurbishment is planned.
