Babylon ARTS Brings the Big Screen Back!
Babylon Cinema at The Maltings will reopen and welcome back the public from Thursday 20th May with an exciting programme of family favourites, independent films, 2021 award winners and nominees, and live cinema experiences.
The cinema, which has been closed to the public since March 2020 due to Covid-19, will reopen with enhanced safety and hygiene procedures in place for a safe and enjoyable movie-going experience.
Babylon ARTS’ chief executive, Claire Somerville said, “After this long lockdown, we’re excited to welcome back audiences and to give them a chance to escape into film and for that big screen, communal experience that’s so magical about cinema.
“It’s been quite a journey for everyone and as part of the re-launch we’ve worked with Peterborough Films to produce a cinematic film trailer for our cinema, which we think captures the build-up of excitement we’re feeling about getting the doors open again.
The new socially distanced ‘micro-cabaret-style’ seating arrangement can be viewed on a 360° degree virtual tour, which means customers can see exactly where their table is, before booking their seats. Click here to view the virtual tour.
Claire adds “What’s also special about our independent cinema is that audience members can order their drinks from the bar to enjoy at their tables, whilst watching the film.”
Tickets are now available for Babylon Cinema’s reopening programme starting Thursday 20th May through to Sunday 13th June. Movie fans can catch award-winning films including Oscar-winners Nomadland and Minari, and just in time for half-term, Disney’s family film, Raya and the Last Dragon.
Babylon Cinema’s full programme for Thursday 20th May through to Sunday 13th June is available on the Babylon ARTS’ website. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
