Boutique cinema chain Everyman is to open its new Altrincham cinema on Friday November 9th.

The four-screen cinema, bar and restaurant will be the chain’s 24th venue in the UK.

Work is currently transforming the former JJB Sports unit at 74-84 George Street ahead of an invite-only event on Thursday November 8th.

The cinema – which is accessible from both George Street and New Market Square – will open to the public the following day, with its first films including First Man, A Star Is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Grinch and Widows.

Adult prices range from £10.90 to £12.90, depending on the time of day, with child tickets costing between £8.90 and £9.90. There are also a variety of membership packages available.

The cinema will offer a bar menu featuring pizza, sharing plates, Spielburger burgers, desserts and snacks. You can eat in the bar – or have a waiter bring it to your in your seat in one of its four screens.

Earlier this year, Everyman said it was hoping to “create something special” in Altrincham.

Chief executive Crispin Lilly said: “Our focus is really on experience, from a fabulous bar and food and drink menu, including lovely wines and hand rolled pizzas, to comfy sofa seating and a great programme of film and events.

“We aim to make every guest’s visit special no matter what they choose to watch, and make them fall in love with a night at the cinema.”
