New Foyer Open at Abbeygate Cinema ...



Following recent building works at Abbeygate Cinema for the long-awaited development of the Hatter Street cinema, Phase One of the expansion is now complete and sees the new foyer area, with a new Box Office/Kiosk serving counter, open this weekend! 


The new area joins through to the existing cinema and restaurant making a much larger, more welcoming and relaxed foyer space for customers.


Chris Peters, Project Manager for Abbeygate Cinema said “We are really excited that our long-standing plans are finally coming to fruition, and that customers can now see the first part of our exciting development plans come alive. It’s been a challenging few months while the building work has been carried out and we would like to thank our customers, as always, for their understanding, patience and support”. 


Moving forward, there are a series of refurbishments planned for the existing cinema and restaurant, to update and bring the décor in-line with the contemporary feel of the new foyer area and then the focus will be on the future phases planned.


Andrea Holmes, Marketing Manager for Abbeygate Cinema added “We’re excited to see this lovely new space open and we hope customers will appreciate the larger foyer area and that it enhances their visit with us. We have been amazed by the support our Building Blocks Fundraising Campaign has been given where the public can donate to the cause and if anyone is further inspired to help with the planned expansion going forward now that Phase One is complete, details can be found on the website.”
