Station Cinema announced summer of exciting screenings following reopening

The Station Cinema has announced a summer of exciting screenings after reopening following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions.

Staff at the venue at The Station in Richmond say they are delighted to be back open again.

The cinema reopened yesterday and celebrated with the launch of the Unlocked Film Festival, featuring acclaimed films from around the world.

General manager Dan Westgarth said: “We’re overwhelmed with excitement to reopen, especially to welcome back so many familiar faces who have supported us over the last year.

“There is nothing better than sitting down with a bit of popcorn, a drink and enjoying a fantastic movie on the big screen.”

Dan said a number of acclaimed films were being screened in coming weeks including Olivia Colman and Anthony Hopkins in The Father which has won rave reviews across the industry.

Dan added: “A film starring two Academy Award winning actors is certainly something to watch and is eagerly anticipated.

“Moving over to July with Supernova, Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci star in a beautiful and I expect emotional film, as their relationship has to deal with the rise of dementia and their final days as they travel around the Lake District.

During half-term we will be showing a wide range of films for families from the infamous Tom & Jerry, Scoob — a reboot of Scooby Doo —and of course Peter Rabbit 2.”

“We have invested heavily in training procedures, cleaning materials and will still be complying with social distancing regulations.

“The cinema itself offers fresh air filtration that actively pumps fresh air in and out of the screen meaning we provide a fully safe environment in which to enjoy a movie.

“We’re really looking forward to welcoming audiences old and new back to The Station Cinema.”
