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.”
