Wendy said: “I am really looking forward to lighting up the centre of Daventry with this great new facility.

"There have been some great films out that have really brought people back into cinemas - such as last year’s Bond and more recently Spiderman and Sing 2.

"The rest of 2022 has some equally good releases with The Batman in our opening week, closely followed by Sonic’s latest adventure, Dr Strange, Fantastic Beasts 3 and the long-awaited Top Gun sequel - and that’s all before the end of May."

The cinema, which has a café bar, will show the latest blockbuster and independent films as well as broadcast screenings of opera, ballet and theatrical productions.

Wendy Goldie is the new manager.

All screens are wheelchair accessible along with subtitled screenings, kids’ clubs and parent and baby screenings.
