Something for everyone as we launch our socially distanced cinema

We’re offering film fans the chance to get up close to the big screen whilst remaining safely distanced from each other, with a series of popular movie events later this month.

Perfect for families, cult film fans and those looking for a fun afternoon out with friends, the venue’s giant Auditorium (formerly the IMAX cinema) is kicking off its series of screenings on Monday 27th July, for the first of two showings of family favourite Trolls World Tour, ahead of the Tarantino classic, Pulp Fiction, on Friday 31st July. The second Trolls World Tour performance will be shown on the morning of Saturday 1st August, followed by an afternoon screening of Sex and the City: The Movie, complete with bottomless prosecco.

How have we made it safe?

The award-winning events team at Millennium Point has been working hard to implement new hygiene and safety measures, to ensure all government guidelines are met. The Auditorium, which at full capacity can host 354 people, will be reduced to 181 seats to allow for physical distancing between cinema-goers, and all seats will be allocated in advance to pre-paid ticket holders. A deep clean will be carried out between performances and all screenings will be contactless and cash-free. Specific details for measures we have taken can be found on each booking page.

Prices and Seating Allocation

Tickets for Trolls World Tour are priced at £7.50 (plus booking fee) and the Friday night screening of Pulp Fiction includes two drinks in the £15 (plus booking fee) ticket price. Bottomless prosecco will begin an hour and a half before Sex and the City: The Movie starts, with the whole package costing £20 (plus booking fee). Ticket-holders for the Sex and the City screening will be allocated a safely-distanced table in the large and airy Platform space, to enjoy their drinks beforehand.

Why are we doing this?

As the country starts to emerge from lockdown, we wanted to put on a series of fun and affordable events that appeal to a wide range of people, from families and couples to groups of friends. Cinema is a great form of escapism and watching films on our giant screen is a truly memorable experience, which we hope will offer a safe and enjoyable way for people to spend time together.

The whole team at Millennium Point has gone above and beyond to make sure we can safely adapt our spaces. We have a huge amount of experience in running events of all sizes, and our first priority was to make the venue as safe as possible. With the range of measures that we’ve put in place, we’re excited to get our events back underway, and can’t wait to welcome visitors to enjoy their cinema experience over the coming weeks.
