Regent Street Cinema: popcorn testers needed

27 March 2015

From popcorn and drinks holders to fire escapes and toilets – students are invited to free 'dress rehearsal' screenings to test every aspect of the new Regent Street Cinema.

The restored cinema will host three early evening screenings on 21, 22 and 23 April during which students and staff will be able to explore the new venue and enjoy a free film screening. This will help to ensure that everything is working perfectly before the cinema opens to the public this May.

Following the screening, members of the cinema team will be on hand to answer any questions. There will be an opportunity to give feedback about your experience and to make suggestions for programming and events.

Tickets will be released at 10am on Thursday 16 April. There will be 200 tickets available for each screening and tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Further details will be published shortly.
