CINEMA FOR EVERY MAN (AND WOMAN)
New boutique venue offers diverse range of films and table service to attract movie goers
A NEW cinema has opened its doors in Gerrards Cross promising to offer a variety of big screen entertainment.
The Everyman Cinema in Ethorpe Crescent, opened on Friday, October 23 with screenings of new releases, replacing the Odeon which closed earlier this year.
The cinema is set to bring a new programme of films and events to Gerrards Cross, which will be announced in the weeks to come.
Everyman is a chain of “boutique” cinemas which has locations in places such as Leeds, Birmingham, Walton-on-Thames and several sites in London.
It specialises in offering a selection from blockbuster movies, independent films, special directors’ cuts and oneoff screenings.
There will be a sweet and savoury snack selection as well as hand made pizzas, all delivered to guests as part of a table service.
Gerrards Cross will be the first Everyman site to open in Bucks, and includes two screens with a combined capacity of more than 200, both equipped with Digital AES audio, Digital 3D and HD satellite capabilities.
Crispin Lilly, CEO at Everyman Cinema, said: “Our unwavering focus on hospitality and growing a skilled and knowledgeable team to enhance our customers’ experience mean Everyman has become synonymous with delivering a whole new approach to cinema.
“For many, the local cinema lies at the heart of their community and we take our responsibilty to provide high quality entertainment to people living and visiting Gerrards Cross extremely seriously.”
The Odeon closed its doors earlier this year after being at the site for more than 15 years, but did not give a reason for its closure. The nearest other cinemas for people living in south Bucks are High Wycombe or Uxbridge.
Parish council chairman Chris Brown said: “We’re really pleased that the new cinema is opening. People in Gerrards Cross love having a cinema here, and it would have been terrible to lose it.”
